    88 4-cyl FIERO suspension questions

    I have spotted a nice, clean 88 FIERO in the local junk yard but it's a 4-cylinder, 5 spd.....I have read that all 1988 Fieros have the better, upgraded suspension (front and rear)....However this being a lowly 4-cyl model and bottom of the line Fiero I was wondering if it has the upgraded brakes as well from factory...

    Can anyone confirm this about the '88 Fieros....Do ALL '88 Fiero models (4 cyl, Formula and GT) have the upgraded suspension, bigger brakes and engine cradle over earlier Fieros??? Are the bigger brakes only on the Formula and GT models??

    Is the '88 suspension pieces and engine cradle a DIRECT bolt on to an earlier Fiero??

    Thanks for the help - VK

    Buy it!

    You can put t V-6 in it easy enough, everything else is the same. The 88 engine cradle needs modification to fit into previous Fiero's and the rear shock towers are in a little tighter than 84-87 models.

    Use the 88 car with all of the suspension as the donor. Bigger gas tank, brakes, front suspension, radiator, etc as well.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    The only differences between the 88 4-cyl Coupe suspension and the 88 V6 suspension is that the V6 has slightly stiffer shocks, and a rear sway bar is added.
