Hey B4ss, god it's so long since I put them in I can't remember! I don't think I needed to do anything extra to get them to fit if my memory serves me right

Ok...I've made the decision to go back mostly stock on the car.

Plans are to refresh all brake and suspension components for a start.

Have new discs and pads ordered all round for now. Will also be ordering goodridge hoses and new fluid soon.

Then onto the suspension parts

Hiya,
No worries on the photos for speakers...

I installed goodridge hoses on my while doing discs and pads, the hoses make a big difference.

For the suspension, I went for powerflex poly and replaced the worn black bilstens with yellow.
The difference was like night and day, car felt like brand new afterwards, well worth the cash.

Speaking of bushings, do the gearbox linkages brass ones too, well worth it

Re: My GTS 1 Week ago Karma: 57
nice one.

I'm planning on going the same route with the yellow bilsteins! Did you get them new or 2nd hand? I'm hoping to get them from MR2Ben along with the standard OE replacement springs. The top mounts have very little mileage done so i'll re-use the ones from the black billies i think.

Also have superpro polyurethane bush kit on the shopping list, so just the brass shifter bushings to add

I got them brand new from MR2ben - and did the top mounts too...
I use standard springs too, would like slightly lower, but the ride is exactly how I like it, its firm
Good luck with the work

So the first steps on what will be a long road have been taken.

All struts/springs have been removed along with the drivers side rear hub that had a damaged outer cv joint.

New brake discs and pads have arrived from EBC, just direct OEM replacement, nothing fancy.

Also ordered a new Exedy Clutch and replacement outer cv joint from Paul in TCB parts, an absolute gentleman to deal with and highly recommended


Poor neglected car gone up on stands and blocks (just waiting on 2 more axle stands for all you safety gurus!)

Struts after years of neglect, to be replaced by yellow billies and new standard springs. Looks like some spiders will need to find a new home :S
