I saw your other thread about fitting Evo 6 hubs, etc... so you may be able to get away with fitting Evo 6 dampers/springs BUT you need to mount the damper onto the Evo 1 top mount as the E1-2-3 has a two bolt mount to the body and the 4-5-6 a 3 bolt.
The Wishbones, etc are no use as the 6 has a much wider track than the 1.
And the damping/spring rate swoudl still be out
In fact, I wouldn't bother.. you may as well get the suspension on yours working as well as it can.
LOL, no. Thats my problem to. I'm buggered if I can find anything except hugely expensive, super stiff Japanese stuff.
Id get some new springs made up if I new the damn rates for them.
I'm going to speak to a place that rallies Evo 3's and find out what they run their cars at on rough tarmac stages.
If the car used 2 1/4 springs at least I could get them made up quite easily and cheaply and try a few out its a bugger to convert though.
Dampers are even worse to source.
maybe we should pool resources The first thing you want is adjustable top mounts and dial in some negative camber at the front. (i've cusco - very good and pillow ball mounts),.
Beyond that I'm still working on it - I just don't have enough time at the moment. Next year I'm blitzing it to use for some track days.
Evo 3 front and rear amrs are a good bet as they increase the track, the anti-roll bar on the 1 is alos a lot thicker than 2/3 (23mm vs 16mm) they must have reduced it for a reason - too stiff would create understeer....
I am interested in how your suspension setup turns out. I have a Evo 3 (Well actually its a proton base converted to full Evo 3 specs), but have had problems lately looking for suitable 'street shocks and spring', since everything out there now is evo 4-7.
