    Probably a silly question, but I've seen a few rear coilover kits for the Clio 200 and have been wondering about the chassis strength in this configuration?

    Has anyone had any trouble mounting rear shocks like this on a car without a welded in cage?

    Thanks,
    Ben.

    No issues. Many people running coilover rears without any issues. They've got strong strut tops as standard. Just about to start welding plates and a strut brace into my BMW e46 for this reason.

    Cheers Tom, interesting info. I'm planning ahead for a bit of a suspension refresh over winter and seriously considering my options.

    I'll have a closer look at what the cup cars had vs the r3 rally kit.

    Obviously complete over kill for my needs :smile:
