    only some coilovers are too short.

    if you get based adjustable it can be a good length.

    my car sits fairly low (as can be seen in my picture) and when i jack up the front of the car, the wheels drop around 80-100mm, which is a fair amount. and the coilovers are only set to about 1/3 their height, so i can make the car much much higher if i want to.

    im actually trying to sell my s13 front end if anyone is keen, CA slotted rotors, with bridgestone coilovers (AGX kyb insert) on 8kg springs.

    and as for LCA, i belive r31 is a good option, though i think there is some MX** (cresida thing perhaps) that fits as well? i recall seeing it on toymods a while ago.

    if you use a high offset wheel like the suspension design was aimed at you get a much better situation

    even at the worst s13 is doable and if you think it through it can be a good effective setup.

    didnt michelmore use trd inserts in his s13 strut and make the coilover that way? same as toyota guys?

    imo, the hsd i have work very well and the modded knuckles also remove the binding the system develops at full lock.

    yeah people use 86 struts, with the ends cut off and a 'cap' welded on. its a long process, and you've still got to factor in the cost of inserts, so buying decent, base adjustable coilovers is sensible.

    that being said, most of the problems can be solved by running a slightly shorter LCA, and of course BASE ADJUSTABLE COILOVERS.

    i had ~60-80mm droop on my setup, and NEVER had an issue with bump steer, bind or anything.

    regarding what ke70dave said, mx62 is a good LCA to use... easier fitment (only one hole needs to filed out a bit), BUT it is longer then s13 by a smidgen.
    I will be trying s13 this time, iirc, one of the holes on the crossmember mount needs to be drilled out a bit as the s13 lca bolts are tapered and ofcourse you need to drill one new hole for the castor rods.

    MX is heaps long, I found S13 was pretty long also with 14 x 8 -10 185 60.

    dave how come your going from S13 gear back to ae86?
    might be good for these guys to know.
    also - you want big brakes? You can use nissan stuff on Toyota gear, just do your research, ive done it.
    You want lock? you can get more lock with toyota parts.
    You want more track? - also easily done with toyota parts
    Only +ve to S13 gear seems to be the cost - their is a thread on here that has a big discussion about S13 suspension and the Geometry fail that it gives when putting it into an 86.

    and - NOT the more track the merrier. know its affects

    does anyone here think there is much difference to putting s13 gear into ae86's compared to say Coronas. I have done it twice on coronas both times awesome, seen it done on two other coronas both times awesome. done it on my ae71, was pretty crap, drove a friends kesev with ca18 and s13 gear... was shockingly bad.
