Direct Bolt-On.

Just be careful on who you buy them from.

The majority of used coil-over X8 sets from Japan are 10-20 years old,

and most likely worn out or leaking.

 

Both JIC & Tein have distributors in the US, and can either rebuild them for you, or sell the parts to make them fresh.

JIC gets about $200 per cartridge.

 

I have several sets og JICs in stock that would require new cartridges.

PM me for details, I'll make you a deal on them.

No welding, no adapting, just bolt on, and go.

Yup.

They are not welded by someone,

they are made for the Cressida in the first place, with new spindles.

cannot buy JIC cartridges anymore.. disco'd

Hmm,

I think you have to send your units in.

But I will call Monday, and talk with them.

I had a Supra set rebuilt by them a few years back.

Funny thing was, they didn't have the right wrenches, and used a stinking pipe wrench to take them apart.

I have the special wrench for doing it.

It kind of pissed me off........

 

Next set I send them, I'll loosen the retainers myself, before sending them.

They will sell just the inserts.

$880 to my door for a full set (4 inserts).

So does anyone want a set of used JIC coil-overs ?

I will either sell a set as-is, or rebuilt.

PM or e-mail for prices either way.
