Coilovers from AE86 to Selica Supra - possible?
Hi guys. I'm not sure if can make a new topic. Question: as front strut case discontinued and hard to get used one as well. May it will be bolt on coilovers with spindle from AE 86 installed to Mk2 celica supra?
See attachment from ebay.
I open for any suggestions...
I saw post here someone used coilovers from Honda welded to strut case for supra.
Didn't find topic about front suspension aftermarket swap.
Thanks in advance.

Looked in to this myself for a customer & sorry to report that AE86 spindles are smaller diameter than the Celica Supra ones.
Once you put them side to side, you can see. Also, the bolt hole spacing for the steering arms is off centre to the middle recess under the strut ( where originals are welded in) plus a shorter distance between them.
Our ma61 Caliper mountings, although fixed are also better than what came with the AE86. I actually used some MA61 spindles on a celica TA40 conversion as was the easiest way to get disc brakes on it.

I have a set of housings already modified to fit GC 6" sleeves I'd probably let go for $200.

BC makes coil overs for the MX73 cressida which shares the same front suspension as our supra. Model #C41, pretty much all options on the market for the front require welding1985 P-type "Elvira" Blue inside out.

These are what I have.
These are the stock struts with the stock spring seat cutout with the T3 D rings welded on. I have these on my car with 350lb springs;
The sleeve is a little less than 4" in length and I think my springs are the 8" ones.

BC makes a good weld on coil over setup for the 85 cressida MX73. Its the sames setup as the MKII. Many people are happy running those.
