coilovers e9 onto e5 ,how?

hey guys ,I drive a e5 ,and i have a tein ss of e9 ,earlier I found one thread that said the coilover of ct9a could be onto a cp9a, as i known the just the front mount is diffirent, the rear is the same , I try my best to remember that maybe the hole size is diffirent ,the 7-8-9's is bigger,.

If here is someone could tell me the way ? and let me make the 9's tein SS onto my E5, thanks a lot~~

regards~~

GB Enterprises (Grant620) makes adaptor and bolt kit. no drilling of the hubs required straight fit. Excellent guy to deal with

its the fronts that need a little work, rears are a straight fit

Fronts you can either get shims (like the ones made by Grant260 / GBEnterprises above) or you can drill the front hubs out from 12mm to 14mm, then use the 14mm bolts off a later evo, you will need to make up spacers to go either side of the hub this way, as the mounting point for later struts on the hub is a few mm wider

I drilled my hubs, used later bolts, and made spacers, the shims offered by GBEnterprises should be a lot simpler, you will have to contact them for more info

See here for info on shims. http://www.lancerregister.com/showth...=400122&page=2
I dont like the idea of drilling the hubs. If you do take them to an engineering place that can drill them 100% in line and to the exact size.
PM Grant and I'm sure we will sell you a set of shims.
