Anybody bought/installed t3 coilovers? Bought some for my mx73 and neither the sleeves nor the perches slip over my strut tubes. Any ideas? I've seen install writeups for t3 coilovers on other chassis, and they seem to just slip over, no heat application or anything. I don't mind heating them to fit, but I don't want to ruin them trying to fit them and be unable to return them if they still don't fit. Any ideas?

I'd call em. Maybe they sent you the wrong stuff.

Figured it out. Apparently the mx73 TEMS struts are larger diameter. Luckily I have a non-TEMS parts car though.

TEMS?

I'm pondering MX73 ownership currently, so I'm curious, haha.

Factory electronic adjustable dampening suspension from Toyota. (toyota electronic moderated suspension)

Anybody have any experience with the t3 camber plates and upper hat system? Seems weird to me, and looks like it might be problematic if you are going to run negative camber.
