Postby camry90 » Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:54 am

I am not sure if the regular Celica rear strut inserts will fit or not, but after researching for a while, I ordered the Subaru Legacy/Impreza front strut inserts (part #8610-1318) for the rears that I will be doing in a couple of weeks. I am pretty sure that they will fit, and they do not require any welding.

I am thinking that the Koni 1211's were for the rear.

According to this thread, http://www.alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=26243, the 1211 are for the front.

I got the front struts (8641-1211) from Twosrus, and the rears (93-98 Impreza front shocks 8610-1318) from Proamauto. Both had the lowest prices, and they shipped them out very fast.

Thnaks Madman. I couldn't remember which went where. The 1318's were from the rear. I did not know that they were for an Subaru. They will fit and will go on a ST185 w/o any welding. Just drill the bottom of the old strut. The bottom of the new insert has a bolt welded to it that will fit through the drilled hole and retained with a nut. It is a hand press fit, with a rubber collar to seal between the top of the old strut and the body of the insert.
