Well I finally finished my front coilovers iv been working on. It was super easy to make them just took a ton of research an what parts would work. I used the stock strut tubes and took out the internals and cut 2 inches out of the tube and put 1st gen MR2 rear strut inserts in. Then for the springs I got a coilover kit for a Honda Del sol and they fit perfect. Then for the top hats I got some universal camber plate for a Datsun 510 off ebay and this is wat i ended up with.

I got my wheels powder coated the other day and some new tires put on and this is how it sits with the coilovers on it.

This is great. I was willing to do this myself up until you said you had to cut 2" off the stock units. Is there any way to do something like this without cutting the factory parts? I don't mind dissembling them but actually cutting them is a problem.

to get the amount of drop I wanted I had to put different strut inserts that were shorter. But if you only wanted to lower it an inch or two there is no cutting involved. I went totally crazy today and slammed mine and had to C notch the frame but man it looks way cool and it rides decent.
