Can i have pictures of rd, gk, and lc/lc2 coilovers. And the specs. I was looking through pics for rd coilovers and found that they look similiar to the lc2 set up. Just wondering if it would fit or not.

what do you mean by that? So am i able to get ground controls for a rd1 and put them on to my accent konis. What kinda modification would i need to do to make that happen. Planning to ask eibach to make custom spring rates for the accent but if the rd one already fit then it could hep out a lil bit. Planning to go to the track once every month. So i wont mind the stiffness

ground controls are sleeves... good sleeves. Given that you have koni yellows, you shooooould be fine, the spring is actually pretty big if the same size as mine. They are still skinny like sleeves should be, but they are quite tall. you wont have to use a ride adjusting screw. You actually will have to ride the sleeve with just the pirch on top and strut on bottom. (technically slammed) but actually you only lower the car about .5"-1"... to correct that, go get some cheap sleeves to a early 90's corolla. Nice short sleeves. Konis can usually take the spring rates.

Sleeves are pretty much universal man. I just dont like them because they are a trashy non pre-loaded suspension (sloppy). but if you wanna slam your whip go experiment. On ebay you can get um for any car for like 25bucks and 25-30 shipping (cuz they are heavy). All i know is if you wanna slam an accent w/o caring much about dampening or excelling in autox, i know the 91-92 corolla sleeves will do that.

they are all trash. but they arnt trash for the money... but you get the look you want... and to be honest, with 85stock whp i dont think accent owners are really worried about good lap times.

get some koni yellows and some ground controls
