Does anyboy out there have any sugestions on coilovers. I've seen pictures of it being done but I just can't seem to find out where to get them or how to make them. I have also seen ground countrol's fronts but how bout the rears.
Any suggestion would be great because Im currntly working on my sr dime and I know I gonna need suspension(and brakes too)...

I think your main question is with the rear coilovers because it uses a A arm with a leading trailing design. The rear coilovers are very similar to the coilovers that would be used on a 86 corolla. This company made them , but not anymore. I asked. http://www.technotoytuning.com/t3_site_pages/products/rear_coilover.html
That gives you an idea. Seen sumone that made his own outta other cars' parts

Thanks everyone for the info. Now all I need to do is decide on which one. Do you guys recommend a spring rate for an sr 510 thats not to harsh for daily driving but has what it takes to hit the canyon highways?? And another thing, electric fuel pumps in a stock tank??? Is it possible??

Not sure about the spring rates, but the in tank fuel pump is not very hard to do. You can cut out a 300zx fuel pump (or find one on ebay) then cut out the same size hole in your tank and weld in. Some of the guys here say you can use a 280ZX Turbo pump as well. You might want to throw in some foam in that tank while your in there to prevent sloshing (even though you have some crude baffling in the stock tank).

How bout all these walboro fuel pumps are they any good because I did some research and I found quite a few sr dimers were using these along with bosche. Whats the install on these?? oh yeah, foam??? What kind of foam??

Fuel cell foam can be bought from Summit Racing or Jegs, just look it up on there websites under the fuel section. Walbro seems to be a popular pump and I havent heard of any people with issues. Walbro makes a whole kit that will allow you to drop in an intank pump or they do have inline pumps. A few other companies make inline high pressure pumps as well. Intank pumps are of course more difficult to install but will be quiet and vice versa for the inline pumps. Most of the Aussies run low pressure pumps into a surge tank then from the surge tank into a inline pump, this will help in preventing fuel starvation under heavy loads, but if you run a 5/16" to 1/2" fuel lines and foam you should be good to go. When I do my install Im going with an intank pump to prevent from having pumps and filters mounted all over the rear end of the car.

No problem, I know what you mean by putting projects on hold. When I lived in Northern CA I had picked up an orange 4 door (the guy who bought it from me has it on ebay) and bought huge amounts of parts, then we moved to Florida (didnt like that), then moved to Dallas (wife loves it here) but unfortunetly an apartment. I then bought a 510 out in Waco that needs a fair amount of work to get it going and have to do everything out in the parking lot (i know its kinda ghetto). We keep finding homes we like, but they fail inspection (VA loans are tough on inspections) for foundation problems. I have to many parts that I am accumulating for an apartment.
