yup. the bolt holes for the 95 are further apart.all i did was trace the hole pattern to the back of a piece of thin steel and used that as my drill templet. i would encourage you to do the spacing and drilling yourself since you have the shop at your disposal.it really sucks to do all the work by hand with a drill.whew.i aint kiddin! rolleyes

At this time I am unable to fabricate the set up for anyone interested in going the "custom" route. I no longer have the time.

Price and part list. Thats what I'm gettting, but with 350lb front and 300lb rear springs.


So, if one just wanted to convert the strut top mount bushings to the pillow ball mount, which line item in this parts list is that piece?

The pillow ball mount is part of the Total Suspension upgrade.No one part will work without the other.

Thanks. I was just thinking, based on your comments earlier in the thread and some quick research that the "pillow mount" alone was sometimes used to firm up the front suspension.

Why don't you just replace your bad parts with new parts from Napa or Autozone?

Interesting.I did send Bo a link to Rivperf, so he could check out my write-up.It is a very involved process to set the kit up.Probably why he referred you to me.I might have simplified the process but,it's kinda involved.Need a whole bunch of supplies and welding skillz.

Yeah,you can do the rears all day long.Those parts are everywhere. When you get around to it give me a call and I'll make you a pair of brackets to replace the upper rear shock mount.No sweat.
You can still mod a set of front KYBs to mimic the old kit,thusly-

http://www.7thgenhonda.com/forum/showthread.php?t=47

this one is good too

http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?p=999255

then there's this vid




another one




In the next vid you will get an idea on how to convert a strut to coilover,alltho I am not convinced that a Afco spring wouldn't work with the OEM strut mount.I'm sure it can be done too.Now,if I haven't confused you enough,there's the actual "getting started on the whole thing" thing.






and if all else fails,here's a link to Google Imgs.Tons of places to visit that will have you getting a bunch of detailed practical mods done before by other intrepid drivers.

http://tinyurl.com/k6kv4vs


these infoz will put you in the loop.

These are a few of the many pictorials out there.You gotta dig around for one that you like best.I like these. They're pretty detailed.It's also way easier to do than the product no longer available at PSI.I'm sure it would work on the KYBs,ya just gotta make sure there are Koni inserts available in shorty size.


 Sux about the front kit.I knew that someday they would catch on. I'm not sure about the Pillow ball mount on the Strut mod tho? I'm sure with a couple of plates and thoughting,you can get it done.

let me know
