What I offer here is for Fiero owners who want to do the work themselves to try and keep the costs down.
I welcome any comments from others to help cover any mistakes I make or to offer an easier or cheaper way for this to be done.
I will start with the assumption that you allready have the struts removed from the car.
The first pic shows the adjusters you will need, they are 5" aluminium and can usually be found used on Ebay for $? or new at this link: www.rpmnet.com for about $47.00 each, they are called C-O Hardware Kit-AFCO Aluminium Shock w/5" sleeve, part number 20126.
I purchased mine at a racing swap meet for $25.00.
The next pic shows a set of 12" coil springs with a 2 5/8" ID, you'll need a pair with about a 250Lb spring rate.
I got mine used for $30.00 at the swap meet, they can also be found used on Ebay for $? or new at this link: www.rpm.net.com for about $67.00 each, they are called AFCOIL-12" Coil-Over 250Lb Rate 2 5/8" ID.
Now to start...The next pic shows a factory strut from a 85GT, it has clamps on it from the previous owners lowering attempt.
This worked to my advantage as I didn't have to compress the spring or have it done by someone else so it could be removed safely.
CAUTION!!! Don't remove the spring youself if you don't know what you're doing, it's under tension and you could get HURT/KILLED. Take it to a service shop and have them do it.
You'll notice I had put the louver bracket and retainers back on it after I removed it from the car so I wouldn't misplace them.
Remove the items in the next pic, items "A" are what you see on top of the strut tower, item "B" is on the underside of the tower.
