Oh and also, if they do fit - that ride is going to shake your teeth loose.

I had the same (D2 but the same cheap rubbish) - coilovers in my new Swift for 8 months and even on the softest shock setting it's freakin harsh, plus it body rolled more than the standard suspension. On the harder settings it handled OKand stayed pretty firm but you knew about it if you ran over an ant because your brain hit your skull.

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=43124&hilit=+coilovers

Check out the 2nd and 3rd posts. Better off to sell them on eBay and get proper suspension for the old model Swift.

Also, I have no problem with you doing things on the cheap, seriously - but you're not going to gain much credit saying "Yeah I'm going to use quality parts" etc, and then buying coilovers that only sell for $800 all 4 corners NEW that are not even made for that car... I mean, how high quality is that going to be? I had basically that same suspension on my new Swift, a car that it is made for, and it was installed by a suspension shop, then a good wheel alignment done with camber bolts etc... and that whole set up that cost around $1500 all up and if I was giving a review on the QUALITY of the entire setup, with the Tein coilovers being a 10, and the new Swift standard suspension being a 7, I'd give it a 5. And that was spending $1500 with no backyard modifcation at all... Even if you spend another $1000 I reckon the quality will be a 2 or 3, whereas a set of lowered springs with Konis or something will be a 9 and cost the same.

new swift front coil overs do fit the old style no modification needed bolt strait in
the car they were fitted to had no engine so would sit lower with engine but did have cvs they cleared them by about 8mm

You should route the turbo to your mouth, your brain could do with a boost of oxygen :lol:

If you wanted to use quality parts you should have gone down the tried and tested Koni/matched spring setup.....instead of using a second hand set of arguably the worst coilovers on the market :lol: :lol: :lol:

mate i give you 10 points for trying to fit new swift coilovers to an old swift. maybe thay wont be as good as other setups but hay thay were cheap and there going to be alot beter then the 20 year old springs and shocks.

can i hi jack this for a minute carnt you fit coilovers to a gti front and rear is so what car / where do you get them from i know you have to strengthen the rear shock tower.
