What are the best rear coilovers for the 510? Im thinking of purchasing the technotoy coilovers. Any opinions on those? Im going to purchase a adj. crossmember and upgrade to 200sx or 300zx disc brakes. Which coilover will allow me to keep the stock trailing arms? or is it better to upgrade to 280zx trailing arms?

troy ermish racing is selling rear coilovers, I know he is using an adjustable Koni but that is about as much as I know about it.

sup man, I already told you my sources on AIM, but I will post some for other peoples info. This company in Huntington beach is sounds pretty good. They use Carrera racing shocks, although a lot of poeple only heard of tokico kyb, and koni, carrera is a VERY reputable RACING shock brand http://www.designproductsracing.com/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=514
There is T3 AKA TEchnoToyTUning http://www.technotoytuning.com/t3_site_pages/products/rear_coilover.html
troy ermish http://www.ermish-racing.com/510parts/partshom.htm
Thoughts on companies:
There are many other companies and people making them, you just have to look around. Of those 3 companies, I honestly think the $500 specialty engineering is a good buy with quality parts and carrera shocks. T3 uses kyb shocks in their kits and eibach springs, which makes the 600 bucks not so much a great deal, I would expect around 400ish with KYB. I am not sure about troy ermish, but I hear good things about his kit. He also uses eibach springs
DIY KIT!!
82-92 IROC(oh yeah) camaro shocks are very short. I gotta ask if it was for the front or the rear off the camaro, but you can use these shocks. Buy an adjustable spring kit, and either use clamps form Dave TUrner, or weld a spring seat or threaded sleeve on the shock body. get the rubber bushings for the top, and you got a DIY rear coilover.
REmember when using coiovers on a 510, some people reinforce the weak bottom mounting to the control arm and they also strengthen the body where the shock bolts up, but not everyone does this.
