Old issue that I believe has never officially been answered. Has anyone confirmed fitment of FWD coilovers on an AWD?

Yes, exactly. From what I remember, the FWD rear shocks are 2" longer. Just wondering if someone has ever successfully installed the FWD rear shocks in an AWD and if so, what were the results?

With how much interest there is for AWD coilovers and these cars becoming more affordable to the demographic that's into modifying cars I would think that pursuing a set through a suspension manufacturer would be worth investigating.

Maybe see if Eibach is interested in developing a kit. Even H&R could easily do this considering they just need to modify their rear shock design.

in another thread, victor confirmed he was running konis fwd all around his awd. at stock height it was doable. if you are lowered - forget it.
i would imagine in order to run the longer length rear coilovers you will have to have the settings raised up. and that kind of defeats the whole purpose of buying coilovers which is to go low.
