I need to fix my front suspension (struts/springs) and have searched' date=' read this thread, & also the Brian's garage link. Looks like the only 280 procurement issue is the stop with the 2.17" ID. Any thoughts on exhaust pipe here swaged out a little or does the stop need to be larger in diameter than exhaust tubing?

 

I also noted some of his parts links were not valid part numbers, and by searching here, our member Here Comes Trouble linked this stuff at A1 racing.

Summit seems to have the best deal for 2.5" springs as listed on Brian's page.

 

I'm planning on running 10" springs front & rear, no desire to radically lower the car beyond stock ride height (my problem is I curently have 6" between the 14" tire & fender lip, no idea what the rate is for these springs but it must be up there or from another car).

 

EDIT

I took the struts apart & the springs that were in there are 15" uncompressed.

 

 

 

Found this great thread, has good info for coilovers.

if you have a welder, you can modify the stock top mounts and save an extra $48.

 

I just welded some 2.5" diameter exhaust pipe in the center of the stock upper metal mount to center the spring. Cheap and effective.

I just got my ground control setup a few days ago and when i test fitted my top hat on to my strut it just slides down to the bottom of the ram isn't it supposed to stop at the base of the threads? i want to retain my factory strut mount so i guess i don't need it at all but not sure i think i may be pulling the exhaust trick on it like mentioned above.
