It took AWR 5 months, but just one look at these housings made it worth the wait.
I'll be sending the P30-0032 Bilstein inserts off to have revalved this week. I never got a good answer on what inserts I had to buy to work with the housings, so I made a very educated guess based off some hours of internet searching. They are the same length when put next to my old Mazdaspeed (KW) coilover, but the strut seat sits about 10mm too short in the housing. A trip to the hardware store and four 1.75" washers stacked inside brought it to perfect height.
The plan was to reuse the Mazdaspeed coilover springs and upper spring perch (with nice radial bearing) along with the corksport plates. Turns out the MS springs are 60mm, which doesn't work with a 2.5" setup. Go figure. Also the strut nut included with the corksport plates is for the factory/MS damper 12mm thread. Bilstein is 14mm.
An order for two more Hyperco springs, two flanged sleeve bushings, and two 60mm to 2.5 spring seat adapters later...
I should (knock on wood) have everything needed for the suspension install by the end of the week, with plans to install the following week.
This should give me at least one autocross after installing the springs/dampers before Nationals. That's one more than last year!
