Do you Swedish X owners, or anyone else know anything about Raidopower?
http://www.raidopower.se/Shop/Index.php

They have coilover complete kits listed (I think complete) for what I think I am deciphering as around $1200USD. Curious if anyone has experience with these kits and/or company and if the ones they have listed for the X (ks-f06) are still available.

Thanks...

I have no experience of them and have never heard of them before but I might consider doing busíness with them myself so thanks for the tip.

In the Swedish description of the coilovers they mention that you, at the moment for no extra cost, are able to specify the spring rate. Just add the spring rate, front/rear after the article number in the text field.

If this text still is present the offer still stands: utan extra kostnad, välja hårdhet på fjädrarna

For other questions, why don't you just e-mail them, most Swedes are rather well educated in English so you should be able to get good answers.

Their e-mail is: info@raidopower.com

And I heard from them too. I need to check with KSportUSA first, but if they can not get them, then I can get them from Sweden, and it looks like from Sweden, with shipping, around $1100. Not bad compared to the GC coilovers....

Hi guys,

I took the liberty to ask them as well and they sent me drawing of the suspension set.
It also includes adjustable pillow balls for camber adjustment. Excellent service they have.

just working harder. As for the cost, coilovers from Ground Control are too much. But coilovers change the feel of the car so much. If you ever get the chance to find Dick, take my old X for a spin and you will see.

As for Dick... I've exhausted all my resources for finding him or his nephew Mel.&nbsp; Mel is probably OK... but Dick was 80, smoked continuously, and drove like he might die tomorrow... which was a good possibility.

It was good knowing them both...
