Its about time i give back. I have been doing alot of work on my ke jus for the sport of drifting and i have gain a fair amount of knowledge so i am here to share on what i have done on my car.
Well lets get started here is what you need to start:
-2 Jack stands
-Ratchet with a 6" extension
-3/16" hex wrench
-Hammer or dead blow hammer
-And, of course, the coilovers.
What i did was purchased a ae86 coilover kit from TSC he has them in stock.
Coilover kit contents
and well the strut itself.
Now you would get the struts looking like the red struts but you would have to get them in the state of the green trd's.
Now what you would have to do is remove the shield this can be either done by having fun with the hammer and knock it until it comes loose or you can cut it off. Do not place too much heat on the shaft.
When you get it off you then put the peices together and you would have tadda lol
You would also have to use a spacer which would be made of a peice of 1" pipe which should be about 2" in hight.
the washer is the silver pipeing you see in the pic.
Now this is where you get intermit with your car where the painfu... errr... fun part begins. Originally, only a skinny little shock was supposed to go up through this area, so there's not quite enough room for a beefy coilover. So, we're going to pound back the chassis' sheet metal a bit to allow enough room for the coilover to get up there at the correct angle.
Preferrably, use a dead blow hammer (a regular one will suffice, but damage the paint and expose raw metal) and pound back the highlighted area about 1/8" to 1/4". This will create enough clearance for the new coilover. Periodically, put the coilover up into the hole up top to see if it will connect with the lower shock mount without hitting the chassis.
This part took the most time. I pounded on it for about 15-20 minutes, stopping every once in a while to check for fitment. I only had a small hammer, so it took quite a lot of work. A bigger hammer would be more effective.
now i haven't done it yet but i want to get a lock made i dont trust the 3 nuts lol the lock would looking something like this:
The lock is the black part which the sleves rest on.
You are doing this that your own risk i would not take responsibility or any injuries that occur. jus kidding do it right nothing should happen have fun. NOT Responsible at all thats me.
