FWIW there was a post started years back with members rides in it here:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3527&start=25

Read the rules before posting in the thread. One post with your pics is sufficient no need to make 5 posts with one picture in each. A lot of links have gone dead in there and I'll go through it one of these days and clean it up so that it's pics only again.

Coilovers are a custom adaptation from another vehicle which can not be revealed at this time. The rear spring has been removed and the shock has been replaced with a fully adjustable 32 way coilover. When it is perfected I will tell all. The car currently handles like a go kart. It is very fun to drive. Running a 15×8 +18 with 205/50r15 does not rub even under hard turns or bumps. Very solid car. Can be adjusted to be very comfortable.

Hi moderator pls delete this non sense thread, given the fact that there is already same one in place since 2004.

Hey if you want to talk shit asshole get out of here. I never expected so many people in this forum to talk so much shit. They are fucking geos man. Who in the fuck do you think you people are. I would of expected this from honda drivers or 240sx drivers but not you.

for a guy with a grand total of 18 posts i don't think you are in a good position to insult other members including a moderator.

if anyone leaves this thread it will be you so pull in your horns and play nice.

what these guys are telling you is that you are not the first guy to bolt coil overs and bigger brake calipers on a metro and a mk4/5 metro to boot which is by no means in the performance sweet spot.

Midnight_Sleeper,

I like the turned down tail pipe. What brand of muffler is that?

Looks like i was insulted first, guy. I didnt say i was the first to install coilovers. I just want everyone to post whatever they want but i keep getting hastled. They dont make much for these cars im trying to make it cost effected to do upgrades to them and instead of input or suggestions i get haters. So 18 posts or 100000000 post it doesnt matter im not here to argue.
