M3 E36 front wishbones on Calibra?

by LE16 » Wed May 26, 2010 8:00 pm

Has anyone ever done this?

I spotted a set of these for a Calibra not long ago on ebay but only now have realised that they appear to be an M3 E36 set in actuality.

Check this out:

But then spotted the following on Migweb! very nice indeed!

? stop smoking weed, of course they aren't the same, what would be the point of a post about the OEM parts fitting the original car?

I think these are the Saab 900 bones. The M3 style ones I have seen for the Calibra too but damned if I can find them anywhere!

I saw them on Ebay but they did fit the Calibra just M3 Style, holes etc. I might have a little pop at the Saab ones (when I find out more) ;)

Why not fit a loaf of bread instead then, more chance of making that fit :banging:

The Saab ones are a different story though, it was Rich on hear/.other that fitted saab ones to his together with subframe.

Indeed they are Saab's, more info here:

http://www.clubcalibra.com/index.php?topic=19560.12

Can't be used on a Calibra turbo and will put your camber out of spec on other Calibra models. Some guy on ClubCalibra Australia - 'joejoe' on mig? - fitted them.

When I get back, I'll take some pix of the wishbones going on my turbo - seam strengthened with rose joints. Harsh but ultra firm.
