  • Cut the bottom off the mk3 rears and make transmission mounts . That's about all i know or keep them for a lifted offroad festiva.

    • I ended up selling my rear coilovers from the kit to a local guy for $80. Took a while, but it was worth the wait

              • I will be taking much better pictures of the advanced kit and what all you must do to make it fit the festiva. I almost have all the parts in. Stay tuned.

                        • Robotkarate, you mentioned you used the caddy fronts. How's the length comparison to the coilover fronts of raceland. Did you still have to re-drill the holes to fit the hub.

                          • I found a reasonably priced set of coilovers that are front only, in the description it say "Gold Zinc Plated housing
                            Lower Spring Perches
                            Upper Spring seat
                            Main Spring Helper springBumpstop
                            Front & Rear*45-85mm (1.7-3.3") Lowering Range
                            VR6 Platform Based Spring Rates and Matched Valving"

                            Is there any issue with the fact that they have valving that is matched to a VR6 platform? Or are all mk2/3 coilovers pretty much the same thing? The brand is called solo werks btw

                                Maybe these would work? Similar to what he references.
