Brandon id steer away from a motorcycle shock. Like Ryan said, go with an adjustable coilover. Maybe we can fab something & use a coilover kit similar to what the 510 guys are using.

or go on craigslist and look around a bit, I see stuff all the time, that's how I sold all the suspension parts off of my old 240, I sold my entire tien coilover kit for 200 bones worth well over 1500, so you can find deals.

ooh what're those from??
do you know the weight rating?

are you gonna get some of Beebani's shock tower brackets so you can run coilovers up front? recommend.

these are for a 620, but you could take the idea and run with it!

i like that idea, and i went with the gsxr 700 rear shocks, i know im a cheap ass but they seem super beef and their 4 way adjustable so i figured why not? and if they dont work, trial and error is to be expected....... would love the co's in the front though

The wishbone will be plenty strong when its ready. Ill add a cross brace between the bushings. BTW the teardrop is a Japan JDM thing.........
