What year MR2? and what model? I have a te31 (76) with 2 inch wide strut tubes that I want to do this to. I want to order the correct MR2 struts. It appears that you used the Ebay red and gold perches and springs. Do those spring rates work well? I cant find what rate they are and I am considering using them. -thanks

I do use the 1989 US specs Toyota Tercel struts insert, a little shorter than the SW20 ones!
