I need to get coilovers for the front suspension on my Mazda Porter Cab. So, assuming I can’t find ones pre-made for this vehicle, how does one look for coilovers? Is it a matter of max height/weight, and bolt pattern at the top? And I guess bolt pattern at the bottom? Are there shops that will make them for any vehicle? I’ve never lowered a car before, only lifted. Younger Me would have just heated the springs or clamped them, but Current Me is old and world-weary, and is aware of the fact he doesn’t have a backup pair of stock front shocks for when he dicks it up. Are there “universal” coilovers I can get? And again, if so, what parameters do I need to measure on the truck first?
