Re: CloudStrife's AE88

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.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

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)...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

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...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

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.

I don't think I've ever seen a RHD AE86 front clip for sale, unlike all your Civics and Integras.

Re: RHD Conversion

^^^ Ditto.

The amount of time and money you'll spend on finding all the parts needed to do it, you could easily just buy one thats already imported.

Plus with how common it is to import cars now-a-days, its super easy to find a company that can do it for you.
