KE70 DX

Kuang Slammed

Another great day ahead when we received a Sedan KE70 DX into our garage. Dull old blue color with its original interior, except for the steering wheels, went in for a ‘Suppa Slammed’.

The owner, Mr. Uni just bought this car for about five month ago requested that his beloved olskool ride need to go more low and slammed! As usual, it’s kindda tricky when dealing with KE70 DX as most of the parts does not ‘mod’ friendly parts. More modification needed in order to achieve it the Yala’s Low style.

In this setup, we managed to get a pair of Volvo 240 stock coil spring. Went off to chop it into two pieces. Since it’s a budget strain and for max slammed, we just go with it.

Dismantelling both side of the front suspension KE70 DX and we can see that the ‘coil spring cup’ for DX is more smaller than GL version. Thus, suitable coil spring need to be fit in. If using Volvo 240 coil spring, the appropriate cutting angle need to be handle with care.

Performing such setup on the KE70 DX require an additional stuff and you can get it from your nearest local hardware store. We use it as a spacer in each of the shocks installation.

The whole process took us around 6 hours including a few hiccup here and there. But still we managed to get low as what the owner, Mr. Uni requested 🙂

With the new suppa slammed setup, its definitely closing to a JDM Style olskool ride. Tuck in with a couple of accessories to make it more JDM looks. Tsurikawa!

  1. Guys can your share some info as to how you’ll cut the spring accordingly?? to fit the ke70 coil spring cup

    • admin

      Well, there is no exact measurement for the cutting process as every car have a different weight ratio to the coil spring pressure. What we did, we just estimated the ride hide with the coil spring we have. Cut and install, then see how it fit. Usually, we did it a couple of time to get the correct height.

      • Admin, in that case you took Volvo 240 springs and cut it in half to fit on both the sides of the Ke70 right??? after doing that how was the drive?was it too bouncy?was it too stiff??can it damage the chassis?

        sorry bro for all the questions 🙂

          Ouch.. do not cut the spring into half. Not recommended. We did cut it before into half..only on special occasion depending on the car itself and the owner decision. But still, we do not recommended it. 1 spring for each side-cut into desired lowering height-done. Bouncy or not need to check or other aspect of the modification too.

          Damage the chasis? 🙂 if your ride too rusty especially at the critical area.. it might damage it.. fast.

      Check out this post (http://pomen-yala.com/yellow-kp61/) hope it can shed some light.

  2. what is the exact part no. of your front and rear dampers?

  3. what type absober car use for rear to slammed that it LE 80 to..

    • admin

      For rear, if you are using stiffed coil spring such as Volvo 240 type, I recommend you mix it with standard KE absober. Else, if you are using standard KE coil spring with cut-spring, then better fix it with a lorry absorber. Use 1 tonne lorry absorber (front).

  4. Is the size and shape of absorber mounting same for both gl and dx model?

  5. Is it possible if i cut the spring on the rear of ke70 gl or is it better with using volvo 240 spring? Btw i am using 1ton absorber at the back, Cause i asked workshop around my house, they say they dont cut the spring at the back, they heat it

    • admin

      Usually, if using a 1ton absorber at the back, you can still use the stock spring with cut-mod or heat-mod. The 1ton absorber is enough to play along with stock coil spring. If you have a workshop that can heat-mod it for you than that’s better choice. We do not have the torch and cutting the coil spring with angle grinder is much easier and faster for us.
