Purpose and Reason for the Front Battery
Of course the main reason for this is balance the
car and go faster around corners. This can be done by getting better weight distribution.
I have corner weighted the car and the numbers show I need
to better balance the car. From driving the car I think I need stiffer front springs. In order
to put them on I will be using 2.5" ID coilover springs.
2) Looks cool
When I open the hood up and see the tops of the 1 1/8" bolts sticking up will be cool. Seeing
the 2.5" ID coilover springs sitting behind the wheel will be cool.
What I did and am doing
I bought the parts from
Afco Racing. They have arrived. They
will currently setup to use 5.5 inch OD springs. These are the same size as the stock springs I have
on the front of my fiero. I will use the existing
springs for the first revision of the weight jacking system. If it works well I might stay with that size spring
and just change the rate, rather than going to the 2.5 inch ID spring.
Other Fieros with Weight Jacking
Here are some pics of other fieros with weight jacks installed.
Add weight jacking bolts and stiffer springs to the front of my car. This will allow better
adjustment of the suspension.
