Yeah one person made a funny kind of coil over strut thing and looked to work. I am in the works with something right now. Funds providing. But I am sure it is possible.

not sure if its been done before or not but seems like converting the spring perches on factory style struts to accomodate smaller diameter springs could really help out with wheel and tire options on our rigs.............

That is the most ghetto thing I have ever seen.

 

 

Ebay coilovers are already a joke even when on their proper applications, i can't imagine the ride when cutting up your stock struts and fitting ebay chinese coilovers to fit a different application

im not even planning on using an adjustable part the idea was to adapt a smaller diameter spring and make the base smaller in diameter for better tire/wheel combos with no rubbing issues like maybe the front springs from a 4runner adapted to our strut its flawless idea and when im done ill dedicate the pics of the finished product in use to you

These were the Calmini ones that never came out. Not enough demand for them to manufacture the coilovers. They wanted volumes of ~10+ per month to justify production.
