Just thouught it was better than buying honda springs and these older cars can be droopy in the bum

 

It was an okay idea, but leaves no travel.  Probably would blow the tube off the perch/notches.

 

Honda springs stiffer it up, but leave some travel still.  Don't be affraid to cut a bit of coil if they are a tad stiff at first.  Maybe 1/2 coil?  3/4?

My EA82 FSM just isnt as good as the EA81.The EA81 FSM has that info.

 

But based off a quick measurement of my "86 GL EA82 from center strut nut to center strut nut straight across is about 40 1/4"inches.

 

Hope this helps!

EA81 GL yes, by about 3"

 

The EA82 GL should be the same as any other EA82 Loyale or DL. 

 

Loyale body style was still called GL from 1985-89

 

Feel free to wait for others input, But I feel this is a solid fact.

Sweet i went ahead and ran with it and it saved my butt from making a mistake


That and im trying to squeeze a back seat in there so i moved the running gear forward a lil more than planed. So most likely never going to wheelie. :-(
