Best kit for beams swap

Postby povertymobile » Sat Mar 25, 2017 1:29 pm

Hey everyone,

Planning to do a beams swap in my 1986 gts coupe. I was wondering, for anyone that's done the swap, which kit is best. I originally was set on the JSP fab kit ( ) but I've also heard good things about the xcessive manufacturing kit as well( ... ies-1.html).

Does anyone have experience with either of these( or any other kits)? Just trying to plan out as much as possible before I start buying parts. Thanks!

JSP kit is the best one out there in the market based on my own experience.

My 84 SR5 & 85 GTS both run beautifully.
But one has to plan for the future! The JSP kit mentions mounting either forward or backward, depending on how you like your pain. Do you know which option keeps the center of gravity closest to the original?
