The 124 Rally was added to the Sport Spider range in November 1972. Its main purpose was to gain FIA homologation in the special grand touring cars (Group 4) racing class. One of the most notable modifications over the standard spider was its independent rear suspension that replaced the solid rear axle.
Gaz now offers a Gaz Gold suspension kit that includes coilover struts that are both height and damper rate adjustable. Front ride height is adjustable through 80mm of adjustment. The height adjusters have a coarse acme form thread for ease of adjustment and the damper units are black zinc plated to ensure that they remain in good order even after considerable service.
Damper rates are variable by means of an adjuster knob on the damper body. The GAZ Gold range comes with a gas cell in the reservoir filled with a high viscosity index multi grade oil to prevent cavitation and reduce fade under racing or trackday conditions. The struts are teamed with adjustable dampers for the double wishbones. All the units are individually tested before leaving the factory and are covered by a two year warranty.
GAZ Gold Race Coilover Kits for Fiat 124 Rally Spider retail at £932.72 + VAT per kit. Overseas customers should contact their local GAZ dealer for prices.
GAZ can produce this kit with ‘road use’ or ‘full race’ valving as required.
