Re: Fortune Auto Coilovers Review 2017

jayrdee any reason for not going full coilover on rear? Id like to hear pros and cons. Do they recommend reinforcing the shock top with full coilovers on the rear? any regrets going oem style?

You sir, are correct. Early models with PS used the 45503-19015 + 45503-19045 Manual steering inner rods were the 45503-19015 (x2) Later PS models used 45503-19025 (x2) Take note of the dates in which each part was made. You can see where the 45503-19015 and 45503-19045 were both produced from 83-85...
