Rear Coilover mounts

Another question for all the smart people here. I'm looking at doing rear coilovers on the rally car to get more rear travel and eliminate coil spring bind at full compression. I'm concerned about the lower mounts. What have people done to strengthen this mount?

Thanks!

Re: CV axle conversion questions

Thanks guys. I figured the length change would be a problem, especially in my case. The axle broke at one of the grooves for the ball bearings and continued around. I'll get a pic tomorrow. I guess ill be sticking with the stock axles then. Anyone know where you can still get axles?

CV axle conversion questions

So I finally broke an axle on the rally car. I guess its not too bad, 7 years of rallying on the same set of 40 year old axles.

To those of you who have done the CV axle swap, did you measure suspension travel before and after the swap? Anyone know if the CV's help travel?

Thanks!

Re: Swapping Struts side to side?

So no problems then? I was thinking of this for the brakes and bump steer adjustment room.

Swapping Struts side to side?

Anyone have a good reason why I can't do this? Everything else seems the same, just the caliper is leading instead of trailing.
