Anyone want to get Ricor Intiminators? If there is enough interest, I could ask someone over at Ricor? If you know who I should contact at Ricor then let me know ahead of time and best way to reach him so I can get it going.

I might be interested, but they are already on sale for $180, which seems to me much less then my first set.

I think last time we asked for a group buy, they just gave us a discount code to use. But that's been a while and my memory isn't so good. (They used to be a lot more active around the forum)

I'm down, I have been looking at getting some anyways, so if we can get a group discount that would be pretty sick. Of course you can get them on ebay for 177 right now with free shipping, so they would have to beat that.

You can't buy a better "real" front end. You'd have to build it from stock parts.

This is one of the better suspension mods, although I'm not convinced that everyone needs it.

I just ordered a set for 180 - thats far cheaper than the 300ish they used to be. That sale may be better than any group buy that comes into play down the road.

I am really looking into these, but I was curious if anyone has an opinion on whether it would be good to get a progressive or burly fork spring lowering kit to go along with these, or just leave the stock springs?

specterindustries - There are many pages written about Intiminators, with both stock springs and aftermarket ones. I believe XLXR (of the 7 pages of suspension fame) has recommended staying with stock springs for the most part. However, I suspect the recommendation if you are going to with aftermarket springs is to go with Works Dual Rate.

See these links for more details:
