I'm still having some issues, but I got to drive it finally!
Here's a pic of it's current state, I don't really have any thing out side of driveway pics, but I will get some good ones once I get it running right.

and for refrence, this is 3 inch blocks on rear, front springs cut to 11 inches, and wheels are 15x7, 0 et

Can you give me some details on how you measured the front springs? I haven't really looked at mine yet, but did you measure them out of the car, or on the car under load?

That is out of the car, uncompressed. I ink they are like 15 inches long end to end, stock.
A first I took 2.5 coils off, but it wasent enough, so I went for a little over 3 coils, if that helps. It ended up being about 11'' end to end.

Cut to 11" is LOW,save yourself and cut to 12" first....You could always use a rubber spring isolator to lift it a little after the fact...

My car with 11" springs and a 3" block in the rear. Zero suspension in the rear,it sits on the pinion snubber,but actually doesn't ride bad.. :twisted:

It is the sexy beast i knew it could be now...

Thanks renbi! yeah there 15x7s et0, Thanks for mentioning spacers, I was kinda starting to think the same thing, I would have to roll the fenders more because the solid axle means no camber(boo) but I think your right, it would be worth it.

Thank you! I dident replace any bushings in mine yet, I am planning on it, but I haven't really looked into it yet.
And as far as how long it took, It all kind of depends on how smooth everything goes, like if you have the right tools, if stuff breaks, etc. But if all goes well, I would say like 4 - 6 hours, if you have every thing you need, and know what your doing.....which I did not when I did it...so it took like 2 days, but then again I'm an unorganized mess, if you couldn't tell by the rambling, yikes.

And 3tcRob, bags are for groceries.......

Just kidding! I"m very excited to see how that turns out!!
definitely looking forward to seeing a corona with some epic lowness.

Why yes they are. I accually got them for my s13 like 5 years ago, and then put them on my s12 right after that. And then they where just in storage for like 3 years waiting to go on a car.
Konig rewinds are like Some girls you see at the mall, sure there skinny, and fake, but it dosent mean they don't look great.

Got some more questions about your lowering blocks. Did you buy a kit with u bolts and everything? The kit I bought came with u bolts that are quite too big. I'm trying to figure out a solution so I can install everything.

oH awesome! Are you getti g the twin tip kind? I love those, you need to post up a audio clip when you get that installed.

Yeah I have a accel coil on mine too, but couldent get it to run with the stock stuff, so I made one out of GM parts. Yeah, i know. It's weird. But it runs, but I can't get my timing right and and I have to turn the fuel pressure up on the regulator to 5 psi to get it drivable.
So I need the stock stuff, I'm going to check the pull a part locally first but. Will let you know if I need those parts.



im running a 20r with a chevy coil and chrysler ballast resistor and mine runs fine. whats your exact set up?
