Hey i just finished up an auto to manual swap and was wondering if there are different shocks/struts for manual tranny cars verses autos? It seems to be sitting a bit higher in the front than it did before as there is something like a 50 pound weight difference between the trannys. Thanks for the help guys.

The struts re all the same auto or manuel. the auto tranny is going to be hevyer than the standard simpley because there is more ************ inside.

Most of the 2wd cars came with (EA82) a regular non adjustable strut.
However the gl cars like the 4wd hatches (EA81) had adjustable front struts. posture adjustment as they where called. As far as I know, these are the only struts that where seen. I think that the gl10 cars have the adjustables too. So look at the struts if there is flat plate under the coil spring with a 21 mm nuts on each side, u have adjustables. It will lift the car a few inches but the camber will be affected.
