Paul, no need to lie about the copious beer consumption - we all know that your intent was to use it as an emotional lubricant prior to springing your, ummmmmmm, "intentions" upon Jacob! Did it work?

for normal street use and an occasional DE, non-reinforced should be fine

Clint said he tracked the beejebus out of his sans and all's swell

Paul, I believe that the stresses on the rear are ways greater than the front due to the squatting/or lack off under acceleration/decel... The rear shock towers reinforcing (spider) is not really a big deal to do and will help to minimize stress cracks. M2c

Paul, not to harp or be a pain in the ass (you've already gotten the same input here), and no disrespect to Clint, but he simply got lucky. I can assure you that those damper towers are not designed to take spring and wheel assembly loads, and be subject to the moving weight (up or down) of the engine, transmission, and rear portion of the tub. The bottom line is you will likely regret not reinforcing those mount points if you decide not to do so. Break out the cutting wheel, welder and plate steel, bi@ch!!!

Borrowing Paul's vocabulary...Noice!!!

So Paul...you gave in to having full coil overs! You're gonna luv it for it's simplicity in setting ride height. Just keep an eye on the shock towers. I'm surprised you're not going to brace it since you got the engine out. I suppose there's too much stuff in the way or lack of time? Also, make sure you have helper springs to keep the main springs taut during full rebound.

So in your opinion, those small sections of folded steel, welded (on the ends only) to the outboard side of the shock tower and tub, is adequate reinforcement for adding coilovers? It looks like those reinforcements are intended to help keep the tower area from flexing left and right rather than as a reinforcement for a coilover conversion.

Not trying to be a Richard here (or a killjoy for Paul's suspension mod), but am genuinely interested in your opinion (and the "why", of course).

listen, Little Ronnie(Richard)...

ha!

changin gearz

what's the source for a silicon reducer coupler for a solution to 'this'? (up-pipe is a K27-type tapered fitment):



I've got a Vertex on the compressor outlet that came w/ the unit that you can see above, which upon Google'age'ing I find:

Silicone Hose: Straight Silicone Reducers/Transitions, 3 & 4 Ply Polyester - Venair



Go w/ one of them Venair's, or any other referrals / suggestions? I ran a Venair on my urS6 @ one time a zillion yrs ago, high quality unit certainly...
