Quoting cherrod8:

Quoting curtis:

I've moded up probably 10 sets for people on here and everyone that has ever done it loves them but that was also when the evo's first came out. [/qoute]

Curtis what was the process? Did they send them to you and you mod it up and send it back? I'm asking because I want to get rid of my GCCoilover+AGX and try out the Evo route.





Most of the time the people just buy them online and ship them here. I do them up and ship them out. Saves on turn around time. Also some I've milled out the factory holes in the front hubs to except the larger evo bolts tosses in a few days of down time unless you have an extra set of front spindles to spare and can ship them out before or at the same time. Only thing is these are heavy when its the full set and have to ship to a business I think spindles and all four strut assemblies are around 125lbs shipping weight. If anyone is interested when the time comes just send me a PM I can usually turn them around in about 2 work days. Day to do it and a day for the paint to cure before getting wrapped.

I compressed the springs with a compressor on my evo 8 struts, swapped tophats for just the galant top hat, now back together the galant vr4 tophat will not spin at all. It feels locked in place. What did I do wrong?
Figured I would bump this instead of make a new thread.

Figured it out, forgive my suspension ignorance.

Incase anyone wants to know, both the GVR4 tophats and the metal perches that hold the spring down must be swapped. I tried just swapping the top hat of it, silly me.


Just posting in case someone else is as ignorant as me.
Thanks guys.

I managed to use EVO top perch with VR4 top hats, just slot in a thick hard spacer in between, about 5~7mm, that will give the top hat enough clearance to spin freely. I swapped in a set of EVO 8 swift mach sport, the ride is much better than stock, less harsh road vibration and less body roll in corner, also fixed the steering geometry so no more tire squeaking in tide turns.

So if I understand this properly, all I have to do is buy these click here and redrill my shock towers to match the Evo bolt pattern and everything will match up fine?

There's more to it than that. Keep searching. All information is here. Bottoms don't fit front or back and front springs are too tall.
