        I would be, so it would be

        Fantapants, would require new strut towers, bracing and mounting to chassis etc, it *should* be much less intensive than something like the s13 since the whole setup is fairly square and self contained (which is why I am considering it) but it's still a lot of work

          Just had a look at some Google imaging #eyeverniersaredialledin and I recon you would go very close with using the stock shock location as coilovers with a bit of strengthening of you really wanted. But if it's anything like the ae86 rear shock towers there is plenty of meat to hold the body weight. I've run rear xoilovers there for over 10 years with no sign of the hats even separating. Obviously a hard driving style you might want extra support for price of mind :D

          But I need to prove I can do it to mine before I start convincing people it really easy for them lol

            Looking at pictures of the hubs, I don't think they aren't going to take well to either welding and redrilling or rotating 45 degrees. There isn't a lot of meat in there...

              What sort of shoddy dodginess is it to redrill the wheels for a multifit? I have google imaged the back of the wheel face and it looks like they only have the full width of meat in the current drillings... Clocking the wheels 45 leaves the back face hollowed out...

                      thankls for all the tips and advice guys

                      can someone help walk me through roll centres and stuff in terms of settling the cradle at the height i want to run looking to match front roll centres i guess

                        The traditional rule of thumb is the lower wishbones should be close to horizontal. Without sitting down and reading a bunch of texts and spending a few hours crunching numbers in cad/excel/susprog3d, aim to install the mx5 rear end at it's stock (or slightly lowered) ride height. It'll be close enough, and you can tune the handling balance with springs and bars.
                        "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                          Awesome that's what I was working on.

                          I'll get under the car and figure out the angles on the lca at the front then look at trying to match the roll centres roughly to that by using the flat at ride height method lol

                            I think I have a spare pair of 1.8 ABS 4-stud hubs still in a crate in the garage. Will grab pics - but Ben might be right and the thickness varies - being thicker where the wheel studs are pressed through.

                            276mm rear rotors as per 2001-2005 NB should fit under the 15s. Otherwise the ~250mm setup will.

                              I've had a chat with my old boss about rewelding and redrilling and he is confidant we can do it easily enough. So I'll probably go that way. Is there something special about the whole for the spline to bed into or just a sligty smaller size jammed the fuck ? Lol

                                If you mean stud holes there's nothing special. Small hole with splined stud as you'd expect.
