    no, i like to steer clear of fabricating stuff!! bolt in FTW!!

    looks good, are they yours?

    i liked the "full" S13 conversion as you get a track increase as well plus the brake upgrade, even if you just use CA brakes it's still a decent upgrade over ADM stuff.

    wouldn't converting S13 stuff that way be the same as using a weld on coilover kit?

    hows does the shock height adjustment work?

    ^^ it's all in the steering arm, they are shorter like an AE86 p/s arm.

    Nahh not mine i wish those are some of the Kei office coilovers off Yahoo japan auctions


    but Im not really asking which u prefer i can understande why u wanna use s13 stuff but im wondering if u guys think it can work

    as far as how shock height works u just turn the bottom but instead of the one under spring it lowers or raises shock into the bottem casing thereby lowering without compressing spring

    hey stomp86, have u fitted the silvia lca's to the sprinter crossmember? did they fit?

    on a funny not i priced up some brakes and hubs and s13 lca's. the parts guy is charging $95 for a rigth hand lca and $125 for a left hand side one, he reckons that left hand side ones are hard to come by cause everybody damages them and there in demand.

    the whole LH LCA more $$$ is true, every homo with an s13 drifts on the street where else do you bend control arms except gutters!

    is anyone aware of a balljoint that presses into the 86 arm but has the correct taper for the s13 hubs? ive heard rumours of TR magna, is this true?

    Last night i compared the lengths of a S13 LCA and a standard Ae86 LCA.

    The S13 LCA was about 40mm lomger, thats a lot longer, however the S13 LCA was only about 10mm longer than a sigma arm.

    Can those who have use a standard S13 LCA withthis conversion detail how much camber they have now, i would have though it would be exessive.
