    hmmmm there you go then!!!! the only drama would be the bush end it may be too wide to fit in the crossmember, there must be a reason why they aren't used. let me know if it fits the x member, i might pull my jzx arm out tomorrow and measure it again.

    as far as i know people dont use s13 ones because of excesive camber...but if they are same as jzx ones then it should be fine...the camber on your car looks good...not over the top

    they are to wide at the crossmember end to fit, i've just read, ad was that measurement you gave from the furtherest point to point, as s13 arms i'm sure a re longer than that.

    has anyone considered using a coilover from s13 or another macpherson strut design, cutting off the mounting plates and welding bottem of coilover ontoo bottem of ae86 stru to create a coilover setup similar to the more expensive japanese setups like kei office where shock height adjust independent of spring

    so from this
