    Default Those crazy japs...

    So, I was looking through the Yahoo auctions and found the following:

    Clicky.
    TRD AE86 rear coilovers. I think. It says they're TRD and suited for the AE86, but there's nothing to actually bolt these to the strut tower. Scary!

    Click again.
    Custom steering knuckles, apparently as used in D1SL. Very fkn cool if you find you're running out of lock with power steering knuckles and a quick rack...

    Comments?

    Where will it stop? Will it ever be finished? How will it go? Why am I not wearing any pants?

    1. coilovers have revolver tops, it's simply a case of spinning the alloy hats (which are offset properly as rear coilovers must be) onto the tops and putting the bolt through the strut tower and into the hat.

    nothing scary about them, infact, i'd prefer it than elongating the top hole, and you'd get better spring captivity. anthony has had them for a while in his gold car.

    2. knuckles are cool, being one piece machined and all

    Well sorry, lol. I hadn't seen them much at all, only once or twice. Thought there might be some newbies (like myself?) on here that might not have come across them yet.
