Unboxing MCS 1WNR Coilovers

It's been a few months since I've installed my Motion Control Suspension 1WNR kit and even when downgrading to a 1-way coilover kit, I consider this an upgrade.

I've never really felt suspension like I did with the MCS kit. Unfortunately this isn't going to be a review just yet, but just a photo gallery of what comes in the box and pictures of the kit once assembled with the Vorshlag camber plates and Eibach ERS springs.

The product is just a masterpiece and a work of art - almost too nice to get it dirty. Enjoy this coilover porn gallery of MCS goodies.

What suspension kit were you previously running? Also, why the "downgrade" to a 1-way?

Currently running MCS 2WNR. Sorta know what I'm doing so far in terms of setup but still learning. Running 450lb/800lb to achieve "Flat Ride" Car feels great on track and far better on street than with the 700lb spring.

Car is full weight no aero and have really enjoyed them. Now I wish I had taken more photos of the suspension when I first got it!

I was running the AST 5200 2-way with 700# front and 650# rear in true rear coilover. Yeah, 650# rear is what they gave me for true rear. So I was running 1300# in the rear for quite some time.

I'm sure that had a lot to do with the issues I was feeling on track, but I downgraded mainly for points reasons in Bimmer Challenge series. Also, I wanted to keep tuning simple and work with a 1-way system until my driving capabilities advance or feel the need to have more tuning options.

I'm running 900#/500# (true rear) with full aero and 2,800# without driver. It feels amazing.

What are the spring rates and lengths for the tender and the main spring front and rear?
