    Heres my 78 colt lancer coupe.

    Hey guys, im new in this forum and I just wanna share with you guys the car that I picked up couple weeks ago. Its a 1978 dodge colt , all original from inside and out with 81,000 original miles. I was wondering whats the best option on dropping the front?? Thanks!

    I dropped mine by cutting the springs. A coilover alternative wouldn't be hard though since the strut tube is very similar to a Toyota setup and I am certain will use the same collar and spring diameters to work. But my car rides okay with cut springs and I doubt u will be going as low as I did. Good luck and get those pics posted.

    Yeah as of options in lowering the front , you would have to modify the shock housing and piece together parts to to make a coilover system work. I just cut 2 1/2 coils off my stock springs until I can piece together parts to do it the way I want it. Ride is alil bouncy but I'm use to it.Welcome to the club....can't wait for the pics ...ill post up my coltlancer pics up today once I get to a computer.

    Wow ! That's clean ! Great find ! Maybe sometime we should meet up and cruise or something . I'm out in the west , I'm always looking for local colt owners to hang with n BS about cars.
