Front Suspension on LS swaps
Posted 01 June 2019 - 07:50 PM
I saw a post a few months ago that talked about replacing the stock spindles and struts with S14 parts, and it being a more or less bolt up deal. Since I am going to need to replace the front springs with something heavy enough to hold up an LS and Powerglide, and 240sx coilovers in various price points and quality are extremely common...
So of course now I can't find that post.
Is anyone running S14 spindles and coilovers? If so, I'd very much like to pick your brain.
If you're *also* running a S13/14 rack and pinion, I REALLY want to pick your brain.
If you're doing all of the above with an LSx/Automatic combination, I may fly out to wherever you are and buy you dinner.

Heres a few plps views on the legion motorsports coilovers.
Im also researching 240 rack swaps and have found a few different ways of attaching it. Biggest problem us getting the steering column to connect to the rack. If I find those links I'll post em up here for ya

I'm more looking for info on the S14 spindle swap. $200 coilovers for the win.
I'm already decided on a depowered s13 steering rack, but I'm curious about that and the s14 spindles.

S13 spindles? Even better, if it's just as straight forward a swap. I wasn't sure if those would work.
I'm building a drag car, so the steering rack is only turning 15x3.5 fronts, and handling is SOOO not an issue. Just need heavy enough springs to keep the oil pan out of the pavement :: chuckle ::

To the OP, why not just build up a sleeve kit with new inserts? Iíve got an aluminum ls/t56 on shortened housings/short inserts running 8k/6k springs. S13 rack too. Works great.
