Blang Blang!

Am I the only one sitting on the bump stops in the front? I mean I may have 1/2 inch of play... but only about 1/2" with the bump stops that Tanabe supplies...

I finally ripped a bump stop in half the other day, so I need to remove the strut and put in a new one.

I've gone about 24,000 miles on my stock struts, with much racing and having been airborne many a time... still haven't blown them out.

There's a Tanabe DF210 army out there =P

For the guys who've had their DF210's for while, how are the springs holding up? No sag? Supposedly Tanabe are built to never sag.

I really dig Tanabe's suspensions, as i've ridden in a few of the them. I'm considering holding out on getting some springs for my tC since DF is coming out for it.

Would you say it's worth the wait?

Also, it looks like they changed colors on the springs--

I personally thought the pink was kind of cool, but I can dig white

No camber adjustments or sag to my knowlage :D

It could be a little less bouncy in the rear for my taste but thats the price you pay to be that low ! I love my setup

Hope that helps

Just got mine installed on my Xa today......it doesn't look right. The back seems lower than the front. Also should I wait for the springs to fully settle before I go get an alignment on it?

Just guessing it probably would't hury to wait. I still havent got mine alighned & I have been running mine since I think Feb. or something. Still straight as an arrow & no strange tire wear.

Post a pic of the DF's on ur xA, it will be the first pic on this thread. Might help some other owners out + I would love to see it !

I believe Fujizxb gave me the code, but I also e-mailed them & they told me what to use when ordering !

I would just e-mail them. They get back to you very quickly, they are great to deal with.
