    Hi,
    Has anyone ever had this problem with HSD coilvers for an s14?

    The bolt holes on my new HSD's appear to be too small. The bolts which go through the hubs wont go through the Coilovers. The holes in the Coilovers are too small.
    Do I have to drill the mounting points or have I been supplied a set with the wrong hole size?

    Photos below.

    Thanks

    Are they S13 coil overs by any chance? They have a smaller hole than the 14mm bolts on S14/S15. Double check you ordered S14 coil overs not S13 ones. Unless you are fitting to an S13, then just drill the holes. Or you've been sent the wrong ones.

    Thats what I thought originally also but I purchased a full set for an s14 and the rears fitted perfectly. It just seems to be the fronts. Maybe they mixed the sets up or something.

    Hi, the fronts appear to have S13 bottom brackets for some reason. Give the guys in the office a ring and we'll get it sorted immediately. Apologies about this.
