Hello here my Santana 1985
how can I do to lower it
I have 4 MK2 threaded suspension
do you have a solution ?
I am French sorry for my English
I promise i will post a build thread on suspension as soon as my coupe is all finished!
It looks awesome by the way! Had one just like it. Quantum of course since im from the states.
flatnbagged knows way more about this, but I doubt you could use the front mk2 stuff without serious modification of the hub/shock seat.
heres a pic of an 87 front suspension, the shock sits down inside a tube, and the tie rod connects pretty high up. maybe you could take it out, and cut a weld the original shock tube to accept that MK2 bracket, but unless you completely change the steering setup, you would have to make sure the tie rod still attached to that high bracket.
Personally, I think it would be easier to cut the current stock springs up front than to make the Mk2 stuff work.
Rears might work, my wagon stuff seems smaller, but it has a similar connection setup.
Hopefully flatnbagged posts his thread soon!
Front suspension from an 87-
I hope my build thread on my suspension helped. Figured I would share a few pictures of my sedan... It was just on cut springs
I love the ATS cups
Want your job back? Stop buying from Walmart and China or... Move to China because that's where your job is. C'mon people it's not rocket science.

Car on the picture having another bumpers and doors trims than yours, you know that?.
1,2 Hard to find in good condition, you can't buy new so only used.
3 Chrome trim is a complete with rubber so that its more easy to find. Your santana having different than on the picture. So santana GX LX GL or Quantums 82-85 I'm pretty sure you can find in the France.
4 Really hard to find. You are looking bumper trims to santana. So they fits only from European bumpers from santana. 82-85. Quantums 82-85 having shorter trims. Quantum 85-88 having longer so maybe you can use but i don't know if you can mount nice.
In china they produce brand news bumpers to santana from 1985-88year. But you cant use trims from them :/ they have another shape so you cant mount to your stock bumper.
Maybe in Brazil they have correct trims ?
