Hi All

Been a few years since I have been on the forum. Still have my coupe and about half way through my 4wd conversion, its turned into a huge restoration and major modification.

Due to the Q4 rear the rear track is about 60mm narrower than the 2wd track, I will be be running 9-10" wide rear wheels as they are now driven. I currently have the Osrav sport kit and eibach spring but the Osravs are almost a bit long and I could do with a shorter shock if possible. I'm having trouble cross referencing the bilstein catalogue to find a similar eye/eye type but shorter as the coupe unit is pretty short already.

It not much about 20-50mm shorter compressed I need, eye to eye down from 254mm OEM or so

Anyone got any ideas? riding at the height below I limit travel a bit more than I would like - hitting the stop early and dont want to move the upper mount if I can avoid it

Matey I Doff my Hat to you - 4wd Conversion (Lucky bugger) I'll do that when I either make a killing on some projects I'm working on- or lottery win or bank job. wink

Rear end looks phat though !!

Good luck on the quest to make it a 4wd slider.

Sounds like a punto/Uno may do it but am not sure on which one yet - till working on detail, need to find a catelogue to look in that has enough detail to be useful

Thanks - its a shed load of work to do it properly and still has issues such as fitting in a fuel tank somewhere if you want that OEM look (ie not a fuel cell in the boot) along with a whole group of other things

I know this is an old thread but would like to hear how this worked out..
fueltank from Delta HF LS is supposed to be a direct fit (fiat part 46405788) But never had it confirmed. Still available new around 400 quid.. Wouldnt coilsovers be the way to go to work out height problems?
