Short stroke suspension
Take a look here Lajos, those GAZ dampers should suit your rates very well, are adjustable through a large range and should be a decent length for AE86s

Or

Send them a mail about the attachment method and their lengths. At 75€ each new you won't find a better deal around or a better match to the ae86 chassis.

i have been planning to build coilovers all around for an 86 with adjustable konis, ae92 insert on the front, ae86 oem stroke on the rear. but i dont like tha fact that i have to push and turn the rear shock to adjust damping, as i would have to disassemble the coilover every time i need to make an adjustment. so im questioning, what if i would use ae92 front inserts for the rear too? lenght is good, mounting eye not a problem.
whats your opinion guys?

My opionion, fronts whould work alright even tho I personally I dont like konis at all, cause of the stupid internal adjustment.

Using them at the rear? Bollocks.
You need serious short stroke shocks for the rear to get the most out of your coilovers, I´ve just gone rear coilovers and the cost about 320GBP build my specs with a sperical bearing and shorter than TRD blue shocks
Bit more info in my build thread:

As we´re talking about GAZ shocks, the company I work for does a lot of custom supensions with them, they build us whatever we require, lenghts, diameters, mounting points... so literally anything is possible. I know what your company does, but I doubt by the end with buying AE92 fronts, springs, faffing about with getting it to work, you´ll waste time and probably end up more expensive. You´re much better of just to buy a set.

If you intrested Pm me and I give you an acurate quote. Thumbs up!
