Amazon is where I got my stuff from. You just need to make sure you look for the correct spring for your application

Anyone know a good place to get the 2.17 sleeve for use with Koni shocks?

Don't know if it's been posted before (too lazy to go through whole thread to find out) but I am about to build my own coil overs using kyb struts and found these useful videos from Arraut Motorsports about cutting the perch off.

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

Hello everyone, I am attempting the coil over mod but some how got it wrong. I have 5" Sleeves, 12" 350 lb springs on new KYB struts with perch cut off. Passenger side had no issues when I lowered the fiero. However on the drives side, the strut rod pushed into the engine compartment.



I am sure I put together both sides in the same manner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you ever figure out your issue? strut mount plate mis-assembly?

I ended up removing the strut and starting all over. I must have did something different the second time around because I avoided the issue. Not really sure what but its dropped properly now. I have not had the chance to drive it yet as I am rebuilding the front end. I am hoping to have this completed soon. I can't wait to see the Fiero dropped on all four corners.
