do not worry about it. I ordered for KYBs

The only thing I think that relates to is the rubber isolator rings they give you to put between the sleeve and the damper body.

my first set of staggs I had to cut an extra crown of metal off the front struts to allow the sleeve to slip over. the second set I did not, it was redesigned

I have been watching vids and reading about ground controls, and I think this is the ticket. I hope they work with gen 3 tercel. Thanks for the advice malibuguy.
Ps
I sent them an email to check the compatibility with the gen 3.

On my 95 Tercel I have 4th gen KYBs(40% stiffer than OEM 5th gen) with fake ground control sleeves and eibach springs 400# front 550# rear. front blackhawk OEM sway bar, homemade adjustable rear sway bar.
car handles great, rearend is loose but loose is fast.

Here is a video of my second fastest run during the Florida Autocross Championship, which me and my tercel took 1st place in FSP class

Ha! I've watched this a few times already. Congrats on taking first place. I did notice that it handled really well and seemed to have little body roll.

Just a little update and in need of a little more help.
So I've been in contact with Trevor at ground control. He said he did'nt know if the 92-99 years would work for me. He is wanting to build me a ground control system or find me a solution. He did ask if I knew of any adjustable shocks and struts that work on my car. That's the help I need. The one thing I do know for sure is that the rear shock mounting point on the rear axle is lower than the later years. A couple of inches lower.

We would have to special order them from Holland $549 set of 4 F&R. Adding to a seafreight container takes 8 weeks or so
They can also add to a airfeight shipment which then takes 2-3 weeks for $50
Mark


To order, just call, fax, or click here:

https://ssl.shox.com

Use generic quote number 8761616

We look forward to hearing from you!!!!

Yeah. Its a quote that I had recieved and just thought of sharing it :lachen:
It is 549 but free shipping. It takes a while for free :blah:
I have been on the fence of getting full coilovers or getting konis with some sort of ground control setup.

Thanks titanium, those are the ones I found.
I didn't convert to US dollar.

Thanks my cars for the "share".

I sent Trevor over at ground control another email about the found Koni s.
Waiting to here back on cost since all I would need are his coilover collar assembly and his springs.

I'm thinking this is the way to go.
