Funny I was just looking @ these the other the other night.
the 8610-1437 will fit the stock mk2 housing, with the 8610-1437 you need to shorten the housing.

Why not upgrade to an ae86 front setup?.

Here's my old starlet I built last year and here is where I usually get some rare stuff local and overseas. T3 tuning, toysports and island racing has some coilover kits, camber plates and etc for the starlet


Some folks cut and reweld them or you can get something like these.
