get a lowering kit for the later sprint/33, they will fit
frontsprings are equal if i rember correct
the difference is in the rearsprings because on the later rearbeam the springs are on top, and on the earlier rearbeams, the springs are located in the beam
Yeap, front are the same so you can have from 33 since ou have the rear axle.
Sorry guys, the front suspension isnt the same
The one with the inboard brakes has a taller coilover spring and a different location for the lower plate on the shock absorber.
Result is this : If you buy an H&R lowering kit for the 33, although it would fit, the front will be loose and play within the plates. You will need to shorten the length of the shock absorber top thread as well to do a propper job !
I would suggest keeping the front inboard brake system , as its a lot of fuss to change it to outboard. ( different axles in length, different dishes on the cv joints, different mountings on the gearbox, different hubs, and shock absorbers as well.)
If you like to do a propper job, put your handbrake at the front as it should be, and put the rear axle of the sprint with the disk brakes. This way your car setup in hight will be ok, and the rear end will be a bit higher than the front , like it should be
There is a picture of the outboard front shock absorber vs the inboard shock absorber where you can see the difference under the thread " Look what Kev made me buy today " from when I converted on my Sud
