The "MO" rails didn't come with all the necessary bolts (I'm assuming you recieved these when you bought the seats new), and it gives some dimensions on the sheet, but only lists them as Metric 8, and length at 25mm.. Nothing about pitch. It was slim pickings at Lowe's for M8 bolts, so all that had was 1.25 pitch... No go, too big. I'll try finding 1.00s, but will have to look around.


Yeah my ae86 has a MO rail/bracket. I had to make several trips to the hardware store to get the right stuff to get my old Recaro to fit. I didn't have a problem with pitch as I did having to find spacers to put on the bolts so the seat can clear the plates.

Hmm, well something is still up, as the bolts only seat about 1/5th of the way in. Between the plate and the required lock and flat washer that's still too much.

*shoulder shrug, lol

Sorry for the late response... wife says that there is no thread pitch mentioned in the scanned doc. the number under M8x25mm shows how many of them came in the kit.

It's all good, thanks for the tip. I'm gonna worry about them later, once the cars moving anyway.

Got the coilovers finally installed. Kept hitting problems but finally managed to get everything happy.

The two biggest problems:
1.) Needed needle bearing highats.
2.) Needed shorter allen bolts for camber adjustment.

Image

The Cusco ones were wayyy too long to work with the coilovers. Once the springs would move up, and weight placed on them, it would have been a disaster. I guess with the shape of the conical hat I purchased first, the extra threads didn't touch.

Anyway, here they are installed.

Next I'll be trying to figure out how to install my Dynalite/Willwood 4-pot 1-piece brakes.. Lost the instructions lol.

OH yeah, and the size that worked perfect for me (all the threads were taken up, without anything extra poking out), was M6, 1.0 pitch, and 16mm length I believe.

At first I used 12mm, but they were too short and only bit about half of the threads. It kept bugging me so I went back and got some bigger ones. Also, as you can see I didn't use the rounded allen type, I used the "button" type. Shouldn't be any problem.

Which wilwood kit did you get? I have the instructions for this setup:

https://technotoytuning.com/toyota/ae86 ... 86-corolla

If you got this one https://shop.battlegarage-rs.com/collec ... -brake-kit, Poor man mods has a series of videos of it on youtube starting here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38G9QO95_aw

Let me know if you have any questions on them cause I just did this myself. One tip is to make sure all of the bleed nipples are tightened on the calipers before running brake fluid in, save some headaches.

Thanks man!

Seems like we keep doing the same **** haha. Yeah, when I was looking up rebuilding/installing the hubs/bearings (been awhile since I took it apart), I came across the poor man mods videos. Pretty sure I have a handle on everything now.

The only thing is I never see the brake dust shield.. Can you not run it with the willwoods/big brakes?

Here is the one I got:

I had a reason for not getting the 2-piece ones but I can't remember. But the set that I got was about 700 shipped.

I am not using a brake dust shield with the kit I got and I am pretty sure the kit you got doesn't use it either. I believe they cover it in the poor man mods video.

Can't seem to get the second retaining clip to work..

The one on the strut body. Happen to have any pics? Video doesn't show much. Our lines should be the same..

Do you need a "c-clip" (or circlip as I call em') on the strut side? There is only one machined space/lip, where as the hard-line end has two space-lips, for two clips (one "c" and one "U").

I just don't get what I'm missing there, and I'm just killing the paint on the bracket :| .

Nice and those lines are bit a different then the ones that come with the T3 kit. That floating middle piece on the line should have a groove in it for a C clip and that flat U clip. Since it doesn't I'd see if it would work with just the U clip to hold it in place. It might've been designed that way. I can take pictures of mine later today if you like for reference.

Yeah.. that's what I figured too. But the standard U clip does not want to go on.

Pics would be appreciated! Interesting that the lines aren't the same..

Hmm.. so on yours you just have a circlip.. Interesting lol.

More importantly, are those SS lines bare? It looks like it has no plastic/teflon sheath/covering..

Anyways, here are mine just for ****'s sakes lol:

Image

The U clip doesn't go on all the way, the diameter of the line is too big, and only goes about half-way as seen. I guess I'll just get the dremel out and bore it out little by little until it's happy.

The SS brake lines from T3 are teflon coated. Maybe they sent you the wrong lines? I might have a set of spare ones if you want them ( I know I have at least one line extra). That way you can keep your U clip to stock spec lol. The two in the bottom picture work only with the stock calipers and they are a bit shorter than the ones that came with the wilwood kit. I will check later today to see if I have two spare lines for the wilwood kit.
