Yes,all that's good and well,but this doesn't give me as detail as I would like.I know much of what the thread says and I even am a member of that forum :idea: .The reason I asked for the info is cuz there was a post by Crazecon on his suspension work, he didn't make any mention of such a problem.......Thanks anyway rx80.BTW could you specifically recommend places/parts I can lookup for such a build??

First thing what you have to start with?

1. Get a good shock/spring or coilover set up (fairly easy to make the front)

I have a set of front adjustable agx if yuh want check meh!
2. Next look into a set of new bushing, change every damn suspension bushing yuh have
3. Get a AE86 rear end and swap it (prol might have to re-shim the dif or get an aftermarket lsd)
4. Try strenghtening the chassis, use of aftermarket strut bars and prol some spot welding. I've heard these chassis tend to bend on high speed cornering etc.
