Can someone tell me who makes the lower engine mounts for AE86 and what happens with the gearbox mount? I am after engine and gearbox mounts aswell.
Cheers!

There are some japanese manufacturers who build those.
Will go down 20mm.

I think they also sell mounts for the gearbox but in the end it does not matter that much since the driveaxle will take the added angle.

Does anyone know when they make lower mounts do that just make the rubber shorter, or do they have to offset the angle of the bolts as well since the mount sits on an angle?

By theory I'd say they offset the bolts slightly - I have the cuscos mounted on my car but didn't take any measurements, I got a picture in my projecthread - so if someone can take a picture of the OEM items at the same angle, this would let us compare.
As I see it a combo of cusco rubber mounts and SP-Tec metal mounts would give you 30mm lower engine although one would need to makes sure then to keep the sump safe and enough clearance to crossmember.
