Clio 182 upgrade to Cup Suspension



  Megane R26
Hi

After some advice please. Ive seen a lovely looking standard 182 for sale very close to where I live. It has the Cup Spoiler Pack, but doesnt have the Cup Suspension Pack. Personally I am looking for a 182 with both Cup packs, so I thought could I just change the suspension elements on this one?

I know that the Hubs, Shocks and Springs are different, so these would need to be changed. Ive done some research, but cant find a definitive answer on all the other parts. I put a post on csoc group on faceache and got the usual replies of stick coilovers on it mate!! :rolleyes:

Can anyone help on letting me know what else needs changing please?

Thanks

Hubs, shocks, springs and abs rings were the only changes I believe.

You can fit 172 cup shocks to non cup pack cars if you want slightly uprated o es without the hassle of swapping hubs over.

Thanks for the replies.

Would you guys say is it worth the work of upgrading to the 182 Cup Suspension?

Or would sticking a set of 172 Cup shocks provide a large proportion of the benefit?

Cheers

Not really but if your refreshing the rest of the suspension anyway its not a huge amount of work to swap the hubs over.

Did you end up doing this? I have a nice low mileage 182 but it doesn’t have the cup suspension and I always feel like it’s the one thing that lets it down a little. I don’t mind the extra work if it isn’t mega money to change it.
