Rear Shock Modification with ea-82 coil overs

Recommended Posts

Replacing rear shocks with ea82 coil-over rear struts

I used a 3/16" x 2" flat steel bar to be used between the original shock mounts and the mount for the top of the struts...

I used big washers as spacers to move the top of the strut out to make room for movement of the springs.

You will also need long metric bolts to account for the spacing.....

The coil-overs are a bit longer also, and with the increased "push" down, the outside edge of the tires wear faster..

Below is a drawing of what I did and a pic of the "final product"
