3. Coilovers in the rear are a must ?
Unless you move the engine further to the left ( driverside) you will probably have to use coilovers to make clearance for the notch that you will have to cut out of the passenger side strutower on an 88 for rear head clearance due to the fact that the 88 strutowers are a few inches closer to each other than the pre 88 towers. The stock springs are too large diameter wise to not interfere with a notch in the strut tower. I am doing this swap on an 88 and that does seem to be the consensus on a 88 swap unless you want to use custom axles and move the engine to the left ...its not hard to do ..just window the strut tower and rebos it in and of course shell out some money for the coilovers..there are build threads that address the coilover on the cheap
