    im with sam.... if you willing to wait till hes trading again...

    those coilovers are probly cheaper then buying a good set of springs and shocks.

    but yeh. if your doing 32 fonts.. will you not need to weld new towers in the rear to accomidate for the top mounts.

    this is entirely unsubstantiated, BUT i have heard and yet to see any reason it work... apparently fc rear coilovers are quite a good fit, just need some slotting of the top hole? they are also quite a heavy car so the valing is quite hard.... and can be had pretty cheap.

    best to find a free set to play around with befor spending the coin on good second handies

    70XIN (J-Works) Had some Coilovers based on TRD Blue shocks. I don't know where he got them and I haven't used them yet.

    They did cost more then those GAZ ones though, so if I were you I'd wait til they are trading again and get them.

    i think its reasonable to want rear coilovers.

    its seems pretty dificult to get the exact spring most people are after. spring rate and stance ect.

    i will be doing coil over sleeves that will fit most normal rear shox soon. as well as a spacer to space the spring hat away from the body enough that you shouldnt need any mods to the shock tower at all.

    Sweet, let me know if u get something together and il be in. I want rear coilovers so I have height adjustment front and rear. Some people don't relise how much of an effect raising and lowering a car will do to your handeling. Every little bit counts

    slydar, I was going to do exactly what your suggesting but i have been warned that the shock housing would not be able to handle all the extra stress unless its made for that like the sylvia/skyline type struts. WHat do you make of that?
