    It's to fit an AE71. I was going to use XT130 struts and 86 springs but will RA65 springs fit aswell?

    cheers

    You twit.

    You use springs to suit the struts.

    If you're using XT130 struts, you use XT130 springs and top hats with AE71 upper strut mounts (to suit the vehicle), obviously.

    You may have issues with the spring seat being too large on an XT130 strut. This affects the KE10/20/30/55 owners performing this conversion. You MAY be alright.
    You can have any brew you want... as long as it's a Datsun / Corolla / What is that?

    I'm very confused at this question.

    Why were you going to use different springs?

    dont people use 86 springs in xt130 struts or whatever?

    My questions was... "can you use RA65 aftermarket springs in xt130 struts?", obviously... javal.... cock... head.

    Basically I've got some RA65 aftermarket front springs in the garage. Is there any simple conversion I can do to fit these springs?

    From memory no. They don't fit in the strut towers, nor does the required top spring hat. But try jamming them in there and seeing if they hit.
