Should also ride best at the max height.

Thanks, and can you go into more detail on the installation issues on the front? Does this apply with the out of the box kit with Ohlins supplied sprigs?

Thank you!
Yes, you can run this system at stock height or lowered. There is plenty of height adjustments.

Issues? There are no issues with the front. Installation is a breeze and you can adjust the front ride height without pre-loading the front springs.

I think I misread your prior post. I guess your mention of modifications had to do with the lack of camber plates. I would not plan to run camber plates, how much of an issue is this?

Do you have any experience with this kit at stock ish ride height?

Is it out of the box set up to be identical in height to the oem suspension?

You can run the 1M/M3 R&T right out of the box using OEM strut mounts as designed.

It's only when you switch to a constant ID coilover type spring then you will need custom adaptors.

The height is not pre-set, but instructions are well written and get you about 20mm lowering. You can do your own calculations and adjust the system to run at stock height very easily and quickly.

Made in Sweden for the 1M or M3.
Didn't find anything on Ohlins web pages.
Hopefully coming to European market soon.
You wouldn't happen to know if it has EU TUV-certificate yet?

I have had these installed for two weeks now with the recommended lowering amount from Ohlins. The ride is set to 5's on all corners and the ride is better than stock. The height is great, even though it makes shining the rear sidewalls a tad bit difficult. I am having it corner balances soon and plan on stiffening up to see how she feels. Also, I have no camber plates and the camber is no issue at the recommended, lowered height.

That would be a question for Ohlins Sweden.

It's possible to order the kit along with the camber plates and receive them assembled ready to install?

Yes, we can do that. When you received the front struts, it will be ready to bolt-on!

See photos below...Although not 1M/M3 kits, they are very similar.

Here is the 1M/M3 strut converted to a true coilover spring from Swift, but using the stock upper mounts.

No, the last of the 7 kits was sold Monday of last week, at the rate of one kit every other day! That also means none of our stocking orders will actually make it to our shelf.

We are expecting more 2-3 weeks after March 26th. Your best bet to secure a kit is put down a deposit.

Will be doing my first track day on the Ohlins in two weeks at COTA and will post a review possibly with back to back comparison versus M3adjuster's stock 1M. As for the street, they are great. You can adjust them to as soft as your heart desires.
