Cheap Short Stroke Strut Options for AE86/Cressida/Supra
the ae86, the 81-88 cressidas, and 82-86 supras, all use the same front strut cartridge, even same part #.
with that said, the 87+ mk1 oem aw11 rear cartridges are noticeably stiffer than the ae86/cress/supra front cartridge.
here's the good news for anyone wanting to build COILOVERS, the 87+ mk1
aw11 rear cartridge is also 50mm shorter then the ae86/cress/supra
unit! that's 2" more travel for ya!
so any performance aw11 cartridge will work as a nice stiff short stroke in a ae86/cress/supra.
here's some good news for mx cress/ ma supra owners, there rear shocks
for a ae86 are 50mm short than the oem units, although the oem ae86
units are most likely too soft, any performance (preferably adjustable)
unit should work nicely as a short stoke unit.
I did all the measuring/ research myself so if there are any errors I'm sorry.
and from Hopeful:
part numbers for the MR2 front AGX shocks are... #765015
part numbers for the Camaro rear AGX shocks are... #743019
