Rear coil overs for a 510!

Recommended Posts

So this week I made up a set of rear coilovers for cheap I used Subaru KYB struts with civic front coilovers all I had to do is grind the strut a little and make a rubber bushings on the bottom. And it works perfect the struts are shorter so can get you car pretty low and still have a ok ride! It cost me 30 buck to do it from junkyard stuff so I'm happy!

It was a 88 wagon.top hats are the stock Subaru ones. No welding at all. And the bushings I made where the tc trod rubbers I just ground them down to fit.

I also got bigger washers but that's about it I had to bend the metal up where the top hat is a little and done deal.

this is really a low budget project. If those subaru shocks can get stiffer its a win!

So the struts are from an 88 wagon, what year civic are the front coilovers from? Also what is the length of the strut fully extended and collapsed?
