Makes more sense to buy the jic evo 8/ 9 coil overs instead of welding the shocks.

Do all evolution coilover a share that design or just the jic? This opens up a lot more coilover options for the gvr4.

That would work too, but if it were my car i'd go with the jic option.

So they have these coil overs on clearance for $1150. For a 90-99 3kgt fwd. Looks like they would work?

They might work. You could probably piece something together with JIC parts since all the components just fit together. It's just a matter of finding the right bottom brackets, the correct length threaded damper body, and the correct upper mount.

I'm pretty sure that 3kgt set would work, someone should buy those before they are gone. $1150 shipped.

I bought some flt-a2's in 2006. Just went and snapped a few pics, this is the part you need. I'm sure it's a universal part?

Doesn't the 3s have a larger ID for the rear bushing though? They would work if you were running 3s rear trailing arms though

Yes they do, but you could probably make a small sleeve or something. There is plenty of washer to hold the whole setup tight.

Yes, this is true. I had my Teins rebuilt and they put the 3s bushing in and had to redo it.

You would just have to find the correct male rod end to fit. click
If you want I could send one of my ends in to aurora and have them match it up. The end on mine have a rubber bushing inside and a shroud. I've been trying to communicate with jic japan to try and get the part number and cost for the e39a specific rod end but no luck. I actually am going to sell the evo 8 jic's for $800 I posted pics of. Was going to try and get the correct rod end first.

Is there a metal sleeve that could fit inside the stock rod end to make it fit? They would fit up on top though?

Do yours have damping adjustability? Camber plates?

Sorry,

I thought the images above of the new ones in the boxes were yours. Those have a different mount on the bottom. Are those the ones for the FWD 3kgt?

I would be interested in buying yours if they were new.

disclaimer: I'm gonna be asking a lot of dumb questions as I learn GVR4s. Talk to me about turbo RWD volvos or Nissan 240sx and I'm practically an encyclopedia.

No the used ones are evo8 and just need the correct male end installed to work on a vr4. The ones in the box are mine with the correct male end and are not for sale. The ones outside the box are fs by jic for $1100 and are for a fwd 3kgt and already have the correct male end.

how many miles are on those used JICs, and which type are they?

It seems the 3000gt ones on clearance are the FLT-TAR, which are pretty pimp coil overs... These would bolt right into a Galant VR4 with no modification necessary?

I suggest just getting some BC's from bobdole. The stock JIC's ain't that great, and not worth the hassle, IMO. The BC's are probably just as good and bolt right up. Or grab a set of Hotbits for a little more money.

I don't think any of the off-the-shelf coilovers are valved right unless you spend big dollars on some Ohlins. Hotbits are probably the best you'll find for the money. I got lucky finding the used Muellerized JIC's I have. If the were just off-the-shelf FLT2a's, I wouldn't have picked them up.

So what's the deal with your Muellerized JIC's? Are the springs a custom rate? I only ask because they look just like the normal FLT2a springs. And the valving is set up for a 1G DSM right?

I'm interested because the ride quality in 1837 is absolute shit. It handles great, but rides like a log truck. I haven't looked much into messing with the setup yet, but assumed the ride probably wouldn't improve much no matter the setting. I guess my question is, how much improvement does a Muellerized set of JIC's set up for a 1G offer over the off the shelf JIC when installed on a VR4? Is the setup from 1G to VR4 close enough to translate over to the VR4 platform? How much more streetable are these over a stock set? And did you notice performance benefits as well as streetability improvements?
