    Hi guys, i have in my possession some pre face lift coilovers off a '96 model and Iam wanting to fit them on to my '00 face lift. I understand that the fronts will be fine but I believe the back top mounts are different?? can i use the new style rear mounts with these coilovers?? any help would be very well received!
    Cheers
    Steve

    I'm pretty sure I swapped the mounts from my stock suspension to my coilovers when I fitted them.

    Thought so, what are they like? They've gone up in price since i last looked, near on £500 now where as before they weren't even £400!!

    Sorry about the thread hi-jack steVR!

    To be fair I'm really quite impressed, bit more crashy but that's kind of the nature of what they are. Need to raise mine about 15-20mm all round though as it's too damn low but it's easy enough to do. I'd go for them again
