KTS System Beta. 18Kg/mm front springs and 14Kg/mm rears. Hopefully, they give me some more control over the ride. These Megan's aren't my cup of tea.

Just springs are going to be a pain if you can't find them for the 91 to 97 Aristo or the 93 to 97 GS300.

100A fuse. In the fuse box.

Ask me how I know.
