I helped a friend do his, I dont remember what year it was, but we had to build new front struts to hold the cylinders. We used a coilover setup with the smaller yellow springs, 2 ton?, they are made for imports though. The rear we used hymes joints on the rear axle and installed them like a normal rwd car, popping up in the trunk, same deal tho, we did a coilover setup. The ass end came out bad ass as it will lift really high, same with berettas too. they both use a canterlever type suspension. Its kind of like a see saw, you can use 10" cylinders and get about 18" of lift in the rear. I think there may still be pics of his car on the lowerthanyou.net webpage. It was a black cavalier, I think it was a 93.

see it but bags are better sellt he hydros and get bags my opinion
Bags do the same thing for alot cheaper. BTW anyone know that if you drive a car with bags every day that it would cause a good amount of wear and tear and costly repairs all the time?

actually bags cost more but wear and tear is a lot better cause hydros can tear the car apart

The reason i wanted the hydros is this: I have the entire setup in my hatchback, i have an entire setup of coilovers for the hatch, and i want the coilover instead. The Bags have more thing that could go wrong in the winter here, i dont plan on hopping it or playing with it all winter but i need something reliable.
