I'm going with spacers for the sake of simplicity. I'm not going super low anyways, but I may revisit shortening sometime down the line. I assume you're shortening, but if not, I can send you the drawings for the adapters if you're interested.

I'll be test fitting with Koni Sport (86 2149), Koni Race (8610-1437), and Bilstein Sport (34-003695) struts. The strut mounts are currently out being zinc plated, and I'm awaiting a few small sleeves to be machined by my friend.

Sorry for the wait, but they haven't been forgotten! Will update soon, hopefully
Guess I am old school until I can figure out what to assemble. I just started working on this again after 6 years of sitting. Sprayed every nut and bolt with pb blaster in preparation for the weekend project. I am looking forward to seeing how this progresses and hopefully be part of a group buy! ImageImage

It's about time I update this! I got the parts back from zinc plating and am working towards test fitting on the 200. Preliminary fitment looks very good for all tested damper configurations. The car should be back on the road this week, and I'll take it to an alignment shop to see what the full adjustment range looks like.

That's the hope, depending on interest! I'm shopping around to see how economically they can be produced.
