    Default AE86/KE70 rear coilovers

    Hey guys have been looking into getting some stiffness in the rear of my ke70, I remembered hearing of people putting coilovers into the rear of their cars but it wasnt common, I was wondering which brands make the coilovers to suit and what needs to be done to put them into the rear.
    Note: I know coilovers are stiff, dont tell me that, I've driven S chassis with over 10 grand of suspension work, including solid billet bushings, a ke70 will not get as stiff as that. Just please answer the question I asked

    I've got falcon springs, cannot stand the lack of adjustability and crap damper control. Need something more aggressive. The car is currently a daily, but once this new motor is built and tuned im buying a second car and this will become a drift car

    To put rear coilovers in you must weld a fitting I think.

    You can get ajps springs and coilover seats for the springs or adjustable seats.
    Idk what there called.

    Get yourself some stiff long springs and work with it.

    rear coil-overs, not a fan at all, the amount of stress they put on other parts of your diff and and arms is stupid
    when there loading and unloading it is constantly twisting the diff straining trialing arm bushes/mounts

    just because you have driven a wullah hektic 10 grand suspension job doesn't mean its going to be stiff, being stiff as fuck isnt always going to work, Solid subframe bushes??? cool
    Crap damper control?? by a good set of shocks

    If you want something good all round, Go shockworks yea there not the cheapest but they are going to be by far the best out of most

    If you have to have a coilover in the rear. Powered by MAX does one for the AE86, surely you could adapt this to a KE70.
