Yes they are different. Equal length would make them punch through the rear floor. Which like you've mentioned is necessary for travel at the absolute lowest height. Ueo Style and maybe someone else had an equal length kit. For sales it's probably not big enough demand to warrant. I guess there's not much to it in terms of bolt on parts... the 2 upper links and fabrication is basically all it is so if it was something I was going to do it would be a matter of getting 2 custom upper links and fabricating.

& Now that I think about it if they are identical to the lower links you could just get a set of 4 lower links and fabricate?

precisely, 2 sets of lower arms and some fabrication will do the trick.

nice photos. That shows in the cleanest view ever that the AE86 has a very simple suspension (thats a good thing). Add our coilovers into that picture with the weld on pillowball top mounts and the whole system would be spherical bearing & that would be perfection!

Comp AND Pro Coilovers are in stock NOW
buy them here http://www.partsshopmax.com/page.php?9 = )

PRO:













Comp:







This is the pillowball top mount removed from the coilover assembly shown with the lock ring removal tool on the left and on the bottom of the photo is the aluminum bushing used to align a 1&5/8" / 40mm hole saw & arbor required for making room in the car for the pillowball the rear upper mount.

The process is:
A. clamp the PB housing in a vice
B. remove lock ring
C. remove pillowball with a press or hammer it out with a socket
D. use the aluminum bushing to align and cut your 1&5/8" / 41mm hole centered on the OEM shock mount hole
E. sand the paint around the cut hole
F. drop in pillowball housing with the threads facing down (pillowball removed so you dont cook it) and weld the perimeter
G. after the welds are cool, put the PB back in the housing and secure with lock ring using loctite on the threads.
H. bolt in rear coilover assembly

The Lock ring tool and the alignment bushing is included with every set of Comp and Pro AE86 coilovers. The 1&5/8" hole saw and arbor is not.

The powered by max setup is by far the best coil over setup for our cars period! Super smooth can go lower than anything on the market, and dans customer service is on point. There rebuildable and u can get custom spring rates. I've used it for about 3 drift events and i come from agx ,Trd springs and t3 type front setup. Night and day difference. My transitions are smoother my speed is quicker and it absorbs bumps in the course better. I'd by far recommend these.


Good job Dan & PBM
