    The car is finally almost able to drive! that is, the manual transmission is in and hooked up, I just need to bolt the starter back on and feed it that MT-90 I've been stowing away.. Greddy Type S front and rear coilovers to go in when I get hubs and calipers, along with braided steel brake lines.

    When it's finally lowered, the exhaust can be built off the Pacesetter header which I took to my old work and sandblasted then heat painted. sure, it's not a ceramic coating but it beats the paint that was on there previously.

    ^^PM'd

    Took a while, but I've finally gotten around to getting those coilovers in! Thanks to Mike (xherrox) for supplying me with a full set of Greddy Type S, and Joshua A for the AE86 hubs to go on them. Opted for new discs, calipers, pads, and braided steel lines. But they're all in now, and I've got some photos of my progress!

    Bleeding out the lines before disconnecting:


    Unbolting strut from control arm:


    Disconnecting sway bar end link:


    Disconnecting brake lines the easy way:


    Strut mount about to come out:


    A little physical encouragement:


    LCA, steering knuckle, sway bar, and tie rod end:


    Drill 3/8" hole here:


    10mm behind original hole:


    Protect bare metal with rust paint:


    Grease cap - TE72 fits AE86 hubs!


    Floor jack and crow bar helping to lift things into place:


    Shiny brake lines:


    Camber plate:


    Final product - front


    Spring compressors - USE THEM!!


    Don't forget to cut the bottom section off the bump stop:



    There it is, the fruit of my labour! Took long enough, yes, but I'm happy it's finally done. Thank-you Dug, now I can post photos properly and not be a noob

    I've had the coilovers in for a few days now, and am enjoying the ride quite a bit Still tweaking the damping stiffness to my liking, but I'm pretty sure it's at the optimal ride height for me. If it weren't for Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport, I wouldn't have the slightest idea about how I would want these set up, or what to do to tune them to my liking. Random fact: video games can teach you useful things!!

    Use the IMG code on the right and cut and paste instead of using the HTML, then it will look like this:

    Answer:


    It slips over the bump stop, there's actually a rubber piece that sits on top of the spring (or in this case, the adjustment sleeve) to cushion it from the body.

    Also, all height, damping, and spring preload settings can be adjusted on the car!
