i am wondering if there is enough similarity between the hake fronts and the DR's to use their existing coilovers, anyone ever compare?

i have a friend with a DR that would probably be willing to compare the two when the weather warms up a bit, but it would be cool if someone has already tried this and i could just order a pair of fronts lol

Why not just turn your struts into coil-overs? Even with adjustable inserts it's still going to be cheaper and easier. :tu:

getting an extra set of the stock fronts will be a lot easier if i can use DR fronts, Hako fronts are kinda tough to come by, but i am planning to build my own i guess.. i have three different sets of silvia fronts i was planning to cannibalize for this

If you can get s13 ones to fit that would be a good choose as the brake upgrades are easy and cheap. Can bolt on 4 pot Nissan skyline calipers.

pretty sure rocky auto has installed an 13 front cross member, and that would be ideal! i have a GTR33 brembo full brake setup, so i would LOVE to get the S13 front done, plus buying a RHD S13 rack and pinion would be so much easier than a KGC rack!
