Well, last night got me thinking.....while my bother was over, we were looking at my car. I was showing him how stiff the front suspension is compared to the rear. Well, while bouncing the rear, I noticed the actual rear upper shock mounts seemed to move up and down a little, while the car was going up and down.(could have been my imagination)....this got me thinking.

Does anyone forsee a problem with installing coilovers in the rear?
Of course I know I just said the mounts seem a little weak.
But, I'm in the process of making the car lighter and stronger; and figured I would weld some plate steel in these areas.....but at the same time was wondering if these mounts, welded up with more metal would take the weight of the rear of the car.
Now, my car is lighter then most, so take that into effect while thinking if this would work or not.
I already have coilovers up front, and have been wanting them for the rear as well.

I guess I need to start taking some measuremenets in the area where the rear coilover will be.
I don't know if there will be enough room next to the rear wheel tubs and the shock body.

I might have to make new mounts in the rear to accept a wider coilover.


thoughts?

This is the problem I found when I was looking into it...not enough room between the shock and inner wheel well.

You could always back half the car :D
