NEW FOR 2022 FCCKit Mk8 Whats the difference from a Mk7?? Very little but with every production run there has to be some improvement however small and this will be the 5th year I have been making these and I've made improvements every production run since the first ones in 2017 !!! These will work exactly as the earlier versions for adjustment etc.
NOTE this price is held until we have new stocks of GAZ shocks as we expect a price increase when we re-order.
This latest production run has a logo and I've increased the length of the bearings and it has a double lipped seal instead of the O ring seal,this makes it easier to assemble on the car and the seal helps with keeping dust/dirt out and oil in, see the effects of water and dirt ingress in the photo of the old and new pivot shaft.. All the MK7 versions can be upgraded if required should the bearings need replacing at any time. This would cost approx £12/arm for the parts.(2 bearings and 2 seals)
Pay by card or bank transfer. Shipping time is now less than a week from order/payment!!
This kit works the same as the FCCKit MK6/7
, which replaces the hydragas but made in stainless steel. Please see the details for the MK6 kit. for all information.
Currently only Gaz
shocks are used.
Due to the corrosion in certain countries and the increasing amount of salt used I have developed a full 303/304
grade stainless steel TIG
welded kit. ISO quality controlled. The alternative ia a zinc coated steel, which is slightly cheaper to manufacture but there is a more enviromental impact when using a zinc coating.
Built to last a lifetime. NOTE these can be painted black if required this will cost an additional £60 plus vat and will add 1 week to the delivery as the parts have to be specially prepared and painted by an outside painting contractor.
The arms and turrets
are made in stainless steel and the top shock mount in anodised aluminium.The fixings are also stainless steel eliminating corroded and seized parts.
The additional costs over the std steel items are around £150 and will give you a choice of a suspension that will always look good without any problems from corrosion.
The parts will still need to be hosed down to remove the corrosive elements of road salt but with the minimum amount of effort will look good for years to come.
If you are considering having your spheres re-gassed as an alternative remember this is the only suspension kit that replaces all the top arms/bearings, the knuckle joints, shock absorbers and also allows you to set the camber and have the height set to a sensible height (from 320-345 not the 368+ with the hydragas this causes instability at speed and incorrect camber setting) without it fluctuating due to ambient temperature or fluid/ nitrogen loss. In fact if you changed all these components with the stock parts it would cost you more than a FCCKit!! Plus you don't need any specialist equipment such as a vacuum pump and it can fitted with just a regular tool kit.
The new SS kit is a MK 8
version made on the same jigs as the MK7
and a slight change in the arms to enable fitting without any subframe clearance issues (see picture of the narrower arm) and some detail changes with a logo and an octagon shape in the centre brace. See photos. I try to make improvements with each production run however small.The kit will work exactly as all previous kits in adjustment and ride quality.
I advise you to purchase the stainless steel top arm kit at the same time to ensure a perfect fit (each pivot is hand honed to each arm) instead of reusing old pivots that could be worn and rusty. See photos. The additional cost is £60 plus vat if ordered with the FCCKit which will save money if purchased at the same time and also save time when fitting the kit. Let's face it if you have never replaced the top arm assemblies, with some cars now approaching 26 years old, they will be past their service life and is a false economy not to swap them out. The new kits come with outer seals,SS pivots, SS thrust washers ,SS retaining plate so will probably last for the next 25 years if oiled at each annual service, apart from the seals these parts are manufactured under our control in the UK and therefore fit correctly! WARNING some Chinese manufactured pivot kits are of the incorrect length and this leads to the arm locking up! There has to be at least 1 thousandths of an inch end float on the arm after torquing up.
The picture is an early production MK1/2 version for reference to the ABS clip location.
UPDATE 15/9/21 after a two year wait! We have had certification for NZ ,these use a modified MGTF top arm and slightly different (larger bore) lower bush in the shock absorber, these are made to order and are a similar price to the stock FCCKit..Please enquire about this special kit which will be made to order.
