I built coilovers for my ke10 using golf gti shocks. i removed about 90mm from the strut tube as i'm 4" lower than stock and didn't want to run any spacers under the shock etc. They will work fine but you'll need to get your springs etc first and lay it all out to figure out what size spacers you'll need under the shocks or how much to cut out the strut

I dropped mine 1.5 inches and used Mk1 AW11 MR2 strut inserts (kyb 363046) and Mk2 2 Ford Escort rear shocks (kyb 343020).

I have purpose made 1.5 inch lowering springs that fit the existing struts and am using 1.5 inch lowering blocks on the rear. Only issue i had wxs the need to bush the strut insert tops by about 15mm to stop them knocking.

I am running 13 inch alloys with standard fitment pcd with 0 offsett and  185 60 13 tyres with no mods to bodywork and handling and tyre wear is perfect.

Hope this helps.post-23421-0-72330900-1468748177_thumb.jpgpost-23421-0-36558600-1468748410_thumb.jpg
