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!
And last but not least, a compliment from the house, a Proud Olskooler official sticker on the windscreen 🙂
