S13 suspension in C33?
« on: February 20, 2014, 03:02:17 PM »
I was under the impression that S13/180sx/200sx factory suspension bolts directly up to C33 Laurels? My old cef had them in it so I thought id do the same with they Laurey however the ones I have purchased are different. The rears are much longer and the top bolts are much bigger than the C33s. Whats gone wrong here? They were from a 200sx (180)

looks like they are R33/S14/S15 rear shocks.
Current Rides:
1996 R33 GTS25-T
1990 E39A VR4 EVO 0

Nothing better than the feeling of hitting boost.......................and still thinking you have control!!

The 180sx rears may be different as it's a hatch/coupe rather than a sedan/coupe like the standard s13. i may be wrong

So you are saying you don't like the S13s in your r32 and want to sell them? or you want to sell your r32 struts?

Yeah i put the S13s in my R32 and it raised it rather than lower it so ild rather sell them off and possibly sell my R32 struts as well depending on what the Loan boss says i may be switching to a coilover setup soon

Get a pair of r32 front struts, swap over the top hats fRom your rear c33 struts. Then bolt them in the rear.  That'l make it low the r32 strut is a lot shorter. A s13 rear wont make it any much lower.

No anything to do with adjusting or modding suspension needs a cert especially anything adjustable

EG spring swap  or a shorter replacement shock like Munros, KYB etc no cert adjustable shocks CERT needed

if its anything like my r32 not low at all the idea is to fit s13s shocks with lowering springs as.lowering.springs.in.s13 can.go.lower than lowering.spring in a r32 shock
