Re: "Kentucky AE86: A Levin Story"

Do you like to fry your brain?? No but seriously, that is awesome. EE is hard enough, I can't imagine going around easy electives to take a rest with, and then, just, you know, signing up for a hard minor too :) It's actually kind of the opposite! All classes needed for a math minor are already inc...

I don't think so. I feel like OP would have said they were magnesium if they were, and they would be even more expensive. You rarely see those for sale used since they're mainly used for race applications.

Re: AE86 Best Suspension Setup

IT3 is decent too. They fall somewhere in between custom and off the shelf in my mind. Its because they use off the shelf shocks, usually from other makes/models; although, theyre known to work on an ae86. If t3 could do their own bespoke ae86 model specific damping somehow it would be a huge plus....

Yeah they should be bolted onto the conical cup(s), and you have to get it from underneath the vehicle. Like, take a deep-well socket and go at it from the bottom. You should see the bolt(s) inside the bumpstop. Another side note: In the old FA review, where the dude was complaining about the perche...

Three bumpstops? There should only be two, one inside each spring, that are held in there by a bolt so you can just remove them completely.

Yepp! Just like that. Only thing is the FA adjustables are completely solid, like a cup, so you won't be able to use the bump stops. Idk what brand is pictured, but it looks like the center is hollowed out so the bump stops will fit. As far as the rubber, you will be able to use the bottom rubber(s)...

Interesting ... Another thing to note, on the front Volks I had 175/65 tires so the sidewall profile was massive.

As far as the ride height goes (it's been awhile for me messing with coilovers), it seems if you drop the front and not the rears (or vice-versa), it won't sit right. So I'll be doing the rear springs with adj. FA perches and TRD struts. Then move to Cusco rear sway, panhard and "multi-link&qu...
