    Has anyone lowered a acty?
    Seen a few on youtube, but no one says how.

  2. two ways I know of

    1 the cheaper way, If you are 2wd you can cut the collar off the bottom of the front struts and drop it in the knuckle about 1-3 inches. for the rears you take out the middle leaf spring. if you have 4wd you cant drop the strut because you would be hitting the drive axle. So for 4wd you need to cut the spring down and put some helper spring to take up the slack when not under load.

    2 buy a set of gaz coilovers from the UK. they are fully custom made so you can have them valved and springs rates done to your liking

    There’s one on FB that’s bagged. Owner isn’t saying much about the parts he used other than it was a @#$&%.

    I ordered gaz struts and shocks. They sent me a set of struts for 2wd.
    My 4wd so they sent me another set for 4wd. The rear shocks were the same
    for 2wd and 4wd. Have not installed yet, took months to get them

    I have a 2wd 93. I ended up ordering the gaz kit with 250lb springs, Not sure how low I’ll go but I’m interested to see. Wheel setup will probably determine final high.

    Post some pictures when you can!
  9. I installed the GAZ setup on mine this past weekend finally. I love the way it looks, but am still trying to adjust the ride quality as its quite harsh. I may raise the front back up an inch to see if it helps, where as I was originally trying to get the rear lower. Not sure what I'll do exactly yet, but I love the lowered look.

  10. IS IT 4wd?
  11. Sorry, yes it is.
  12. I was going to say with 2wd you can grind the collar off the coil and drop in down 1-2 in in the knuckle this way you can spin the coilovers up to give you more travel without raising the car. you cant do this with the 4wds.

    it might not be a travel issue, my Gaz coilover were valved too high for my liking, i remember the guy from hawaii that deals with gaz all the time was able to get them to under valve them quite a bit to get a less harsh ride.
