ETS Drift Ute – DIY Strut Location

While im still waiting on my steel (and the fact i have to save $3,000 for a bender, TIG and tube notcher, please Santa can you bring me those!!) i jigged up my front coilover position. Having the original K frame mounted in a forward position to a normal S15 made a few good things happen. 1 i wont have to force the LCA forward to induce caster 2 that will make tie rod binding less of an issue 3 i canĀ mount the strut wherever i desire. I pulled the strut back, inwards and furtherĀ up than normal to give me enough camber, caster and lowness!! Behind the motor you can also see the new sheetmetal added for the new smooth firewall and window support.
