Hi all I just joined the site! My friend found it and sent me the link! Well I have a 2005 GS! I got it this past spring. My question is with the skyhook system I was driving to the NJ Shore and when going over expansion joints the car had a swimming motion front to rear when in sport mode when in normal it was much worse!! I took it to the dealer and they said they checked everything and the one thing that was off was tire air presure. But the car was better when I got it back but it's still there just not as bad! My service guy said he took a 2006 GS out and said t was the same! Has anyone had the same issue and if so were they able to fix it! Could it be something with the system that would not show up on the computer and might just be the shock? Well besides that I love the car so if I could have a better idea of what might be rong I would be greatfull! Since the car is in the shop 4 the winter it would give them a chance to work on it if there is something to be worked on!

Skyhook

Hey Welcome to the site, you will definitely appreciate all the great advise that the site offers...

Bridges can feel strange in general. I doubt that anything is actually wrong though if the dealer performed a diagnostic as opposed to simply driving it. The Masers are just undersprung from the factory to create a cushy ride. Are there are other signs of a problem?

We developed a Sport Spring package for the Skyhook Suspension which improves the handling tremendously in terms of sportiness and performance. It will firm up the ride and reduce body roll quite a bit. However if really feel that there is a underlying problem with your Skyhook dampeners or control, you should take it in for another opinion at another dealership if you can.

How much will the sport spring kit lower the car. What about stiffness? Much harder. Normal vs sport. Is it complicated to fit? Can you ship to europe?

Regards

The Sport Springs will initially set your car to just a little lower than the stock setup however you are then able to lower the collars to achive a lower ride height. We have our car lowered quite a bit now and have switched up to 20" Wheels with no rubbing problems. We just went out last weekend with 2 Masers setup this way and had a real blast, posting some of the best ( if not the best ) laptimes of the day at our local track. Many people were suprised to see these #'s from such a heavy car. However Sport Springs, a Performance Chip and some light exhast work can really transform this car into an animal.

Our Springs are 25% stiffer than a stock GranSport, they improve turn in and reduce body roll noticably. The ride will be a little more harsh than stock however these springs work with the Skyhook suspension to help minimize the affect on ride quality. Check the forum and you'll see some pleasing reviews.

The install is fairly standard, you ( or your mechanic ) will need spring compressors, a spanner wrench and a pickle fork. Other than that it's fairly straight forward for springs. Adjustments to ride height are quite easy and we've found ourselves playing with that often to get it just where we like it.

We can certainly ship to Europe, in fact we are gaining many customers over that way. Perhaps we will setup a dealer shortly.
