Ok, from the search I have done this topic has not been brought up in a while so here we go again. This is actully a question regarding the Evo shocks on my 1G DSM. All questions regarding this topic on the "other" forums all link to this site so I thought I would go straight to the source. Anyways, I have read all that I found nabout the swap and some things concerning the rears were no clear so I just want to clarify. My Laser is my daily driver so I hope to have everything figured out ahead of time. Here we go with the questions.
Fronts: swap upper 1G mount in place of EVO mount (or redrill the holes but I don't want to do that)
make spacer (1 per side) to go between EVO strut and 1G spindle also need longer strut through spindle bolts
fab something to mount brake line bracket to EVO strut (welded stud to hose clamp as suggested elsewhere)
this should be it for the fronts, if I am wrong please tell me what I missed
Rears: Cut 1G lower shock mount off and weld between lower fork style mount on EVO shock
Is the upper EVO mount the same as the 1G or does it also need to be swaped out like the fronts?
I have read about using a spacer on the upper mount to reduce a saggy butt, is this a requirement or a test fit and see deal? I have read that these
click will bolt up if needed
again, is this it for the rears or is there more to it?
The package I am looking at are off a 03 EVO 8 and have Tein lowering springs. I have not been able to find any info on the Tein springs as far as how low they should lower a EVO so I know there is no idea as to how they would sit on a 1G. My car has 180,000 miles and the suspension is shot so this is my budget attempt at getting something decent. I am not looking to scrape reflectors off the roads or going for the 4x4 look, just something close or just a hair lower than stock. Thanks again for any assistance guys!
