Rear Sealed Strut conversion - Where to turn?

Postby k_trac » Mon Nov 15, 2004 12:53 am

Hey guys, I want to do the conversion to non-sealed strut style on the rears, but the link in the MOD section of this site is dead.

I have found an insert for the fronts made by KYB, but am not sure about where to find that collar for the rear, and the correct insert for it as well.

Any help would be apreciated.

Thanks!

www.935motorsports.com

they sell not only the struts, but they do the conversion for you. they charge $150, when you send them back your old struts you get $50 back (good deal).

Do any of you guys know what are the options in terms of the insrerts?

I definetly want something adjustable

I will be welding these myself, so its gonna be cheap hopefully.

Thanks!

for sure on the st185, you can use koni yellow from the front application in the rear. just adjust the front a click or two stiffer than the rear.

i don't know of any other insert that will work. maybe kyb agx's but i don't know the lengths of them let alone how long the stock fronts are on the st185.
