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....

No major update. Although I did get all my parts to do my little overhaul this winter. I was able to get the waterpump, gaskets, and spark plugs from Toyota, and I got the OEM Timing Belt via BattleGarage. I will get the drive belts when I do the work.

Just out of curiosity, how did you go about getting a RHD front clip like that? Did you specifically contact someone to sour...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

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. My new wheels I have 195/60 and even then they're still thick and give the car some height. So depending on what size tires you have that could definitely affect how high/low it is, espe...

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...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So the upper "spring perch" is rubbing against the camber plate causing some scoring? Perhaps the anodizing on the spring and the upper hat is causing them to "stick" together, so when you rotate the spring adjustment perch, the spring is rotating the upper hat against the camber...

Having a clip would definitely be the best route to go, but its a matter of finding one that would be the issue.
