Gecko racing coilovers, yay or nay?
« on: Mar 24, 2022, 02:10:14 am »
Has anyone on here run gecko racing coilovers? I would like to freshen up my suspension sooner then later but techno toy tuning requires you to send a core and I don't want my car to be down all summer waiting on suspension. I know Cressida coilovers fit if you weld then into the front knuckles but I would prefer something that bolts right in. My main questions regarding them are:
-Direct fit with no modifications?
-how do they ride?

Here's the link to said coilovers

No one really makes bolt in solutions for the front. with the front spindle directly mated to the strut tube housing, the only solutions are to weld it in. i think even gecko coils up front are requiring a weld in, but not positive. i spoke with someone local who was running geckos on his MA61 Supra and said theyre fine, he had them set to be completely slammed if i recall. my main issue with running them is i have the solid axle rear and am unsure how they will work in the back, but myself plan to get MX73 cressida front coils and weld them up when i get to that step, then do what twotone did with the rear, full t3 rear mods

Did you end up going with them? I've been looking at them for a bit, and was wondering if anyone else had done them. If you did, what did you think, and did you have to modify them at all?
