so, i picked up a pair of kei office coilovers with swift springs for the front of my Z, and a pair of front cuscos for the rear, the cuscos did not work out so they are for sale. im looking for a pair of front S13 coilovers now, let me know!
on to the pics and captions.
here we can see the coilover and the stock strut for comparison.
here we see how much of the strut tube i cut.
here we fit the lower bracket from the coilover onto the strut tube for a test fit.
then i simply welded the lower mount to the strut tube.
my shitty welds. i need to get a gas mig.
here we show how i did the upper pillow ball mounts.
we drill a hole on the s13 mount without the use of the upper portion.
then we cut the hole in the strut tower a bit larger so the coilover mount will fit.
here it is on the car.
i shall post full car shots after i get coilovers done in the rear, wheels on, LCAs to correct toe, flares and aero.
by the way these are the cuscos i have for sale, they are in great condition and would be great on a car if you dont care about being super low. i would like to trade for a pair of megan coilovers or the like.
