    you can make them yourself or buy some from kaizen garage. there are no brackets that are factory made that'll make it just bolt up. it's all custom.
    T18 in the build

    i belive there was a guy on rollaclub that used rb20 mounts with ae71 x member to put a CA in.

    have a look around there.

    Its proablly the easiest way to install a sr/ca/rb into a 86, plus you have power steering and can upgrade to a s14 rack for more lock with minimal mods not to mention it's makes things a hell of a lot easyer if you plan on running a s13 front too.

    just getting the bolting corect really its a lot less than making mounts up a shit load less. get a s13 x member and a 86 one and just look to see what need changing. I cant remember I did look into it but my brain is not working atm.

    next time i'm under mine i'll take photos
    daim and i were amazed how little you need to slot out to get the s13 x member in
    mine is in
    handles fine, really good actually, only drama i've run into is you can't run much caster (i'm stuck at 3 deg of caster at the moment, would like 5-6 liek my old setup) and the track as s13 LCAs give you sigma arm style track and camber, even with camber tops adjusted out
    prob the only option i can see there is rose jointing your LCAs unless someone knows of a bolt in option that replaces s13 LCA???
