What ground control kit are you guys with the QA1 shocks running? Is it the kit for the FE4 or FG2? I called them and they said they do not make a kit for the QA1 but I have seen in some of your sigs that you guys are running them!

Thanks.

Go with 600/650.

I will, but I am still wondering if the QA1 shocks work with the FE4 or FG2 kit.

There is no FE4 or FG2 specific kit. The kits are all the same. The only variable is the spring rates.

I am running GC 600/650 with the QA1's and the set up works great!!! I used to live in Germany and ran the car routinely between 100-110mph on the autobahn with no issues. When you order I would talk to one of the guys that is listed on the cadillac FAQ site. I don't remember their names right now but they talked me through the whole process and helped me decide on which springs. With the 600/650 set up I would suggest the heavier weight oil in the shocks since I run mine on setting 8 and would like a little more flexibility in them. If you seach the fourm I think that there are some suggestions for the different weights of oil that you can run in the QA1's

Just took a look at their page and I see why you're askin that. You can just select 'other' and 'track day / auto-x' or 'please call me' before you 'add to cart'. Or just include in the comments that you'd like the 600/650 rates. Or just call them to place your order. You should be fine with whatever selection you make in the drop down menus, though, so long as you get the 600/650s.

With the QA1s on their softest settings, I'm sure you'll be fine with 500/550 or 550/600, but then why even bother laying down extra dough for another set of shocks when the FE4s would suffice.

I called them and asked about the QA1 and they said they didnt have a kit made for it. So do I just tell them FE4 and go from there?
