    DR30 guys, s13 coilovers help.

    Can any body give me a quick rundown of what is needed to get s13 coilovers to fit a DR30? Any pictures, links or help would be much appreciated.

    Hey mate

    Mines done it's easy you just need s13 front hubs and a drill for the rear top mounts.

    Try getting r32 or 33 front brakes if you can ... The tie rods won't fit but you can die grind them or getting aftermarket ones but seriously easy job and it helps the handling no end.

    I am starting to collect parts for this hopefully I should have it done in a few weeks. I am having some one help me out so I will try to document as much of it as I can and do some sort of write up about it.

    Re: DR30 guys, s13 coilovers help.

    So The coilover swap is done. I actually didn't do any of the work so I have no pictures of the process. The parts used were stance GR+ coilovers, S13 front knuckles, hubs, front brake calipers and rotors. The car handles much better, and actually absorbs bumps better too. The OEM suspension was toast. It needs an alignment but before I do that I need to source some new inner and outer tie rod ends and ball joints.

    And this is how the car sits now.







    If anyone wants me to crawl under the car and take pictures of certain items I would be more then happy to.
