should we have a mention to the downsides to this change in suspension? like what it does to your geometry
We should do tandems. It will be like making love.
And I will run into you.
I never really looked into it much, but I want to find out, when I do I will post on here.
bump stear increased a little, not pover;ly much. the only real downside i have found has been an increase in effort at lock... this can be sorted a few different ways.
all in all not a terrible idea like plenty here are keen to say it is

well before i proceed i need some opinions.
I know alot of people reading the title would have a confused look on there face but just hear me out first
Ok well doing the evorolla project, it needs good suspension and must have very good brakes as i plan on getting into some track work, not too seriously but you can never have enough brakes. This is why im very keen on sticking with my R33 front brake setup and 5 stud conversion all round using a Hilux rear end (staying 5 stud also) So alot of people are against the s13 front gear for reason's i can understand But the main problems i can see for this is that the aftermarket coilover's are simply way too low and the lca's are too long.
So if i were to use a coilover kit and make them so they were alot higher than the aftermarket stuff and get some adjustable or even shorten the lca's would this still be such a bad direction to go??? It may seem like alot of effort but the main reason i want to do it this way is to keep my brakes ive already got becuase i cant see any other brake upgrade that pleases the eye and can be done on my budget.
Not having ever done a coilover kit before and not knowing where to start my next question if no one can point out a serious fault in this proposition is how would i work out the height i need to mount the sleeve's to be able to achieve legal height for my car and have the adjustibility to go quite low for drift/track days.
Also anything anyone can point out the do' and dont's when making your own coilover kit would be helpful to me and appreciated.
i was wandering what steering arms you use if its going on an ae71
s13's dont have steering arms as such.
the hub has the steering arms built in.
if anyone is interested i will have a complete s13 setup for sale soon. just need to do a few exams and install my 86 gear.
can test drive if they want before i put 86 stuff in.
In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't.

However, i did look into it a bit when i needed new inserts for my s13 coilovers. The best i found was that if i added another 15mm somewhere in the strut tube i could fit some ae92/st185 shocks in there. That project is still in the shed somewhere tho.
