This is interesting that it has come up again.

I have fitted Koni Yellows on my Mk2, and to do this, I used MA70 rear shocks with a rod end bearing to mount it on the stock lower shock mount.

Here you can see a pic with my 17x8" rims with +6 offset (and with a spacer that will be removed for these rims - spacer was fitted for other rims)



The MA70 rear shocks have a platform to mount the rear spring, so it should be pretty easy to adapt them to take rear coil over springs without making mounts !!! They can be seen through the wheel in this pic.



I'll have to have a look in teh shed over the weekend. Will definitely have to have a good thing about approriate bracing though.

What sort of spring rates would be the best ? I'll do some calcs based on the differeing leverage length for the springs that I have in the standrad position.

Cheers

Making an adjustable perch for the std springs is interesting and certainly has advantages over the coilover shock, but the size of the collar and thread needed makes it difficult/expensive due to the spring ID.

I'd be happier probably reinforcing the upper shock mount, making a decent 3 point strut bar and doing it that way, but it my have to wait till after the car is engineered. I'll probably do the fronts then as well. The main reason for doing it this way is the shocks already have the platforms on them :lol:

Any feedback from the Celica GTS conversion with the issue of the body structure ? Anyone ?

Well the MVP adjustable perch is for a full size spring the same size (or nearly) as ours. So it's already been engineered and built. They made versions for 200s and 7/900s, I had measured these awhile back but don't know the measurements offhand. I do remember they were /should be compatible with our spring diameter. I'd like to have rear height adjustment but otherwise I'd go for some kind of spacer to restore ride height.
If that is the case, it will be pretty easy to make up a small collar to make up the difference.

Can anyone contact MVP from that side over there ?

I'd be keen to hear a price/availability/details for sure

Cheers

but it looks like a
$180 dollar order of whatever spring rate we
want will get the job done.
So is that what these collars cost for a pair ? USD $180 ? Does that include the springs, or is it just a pair of threaded collars plus the locking rings ?

Material is ?
