I've just acquired me a 92 mr2 N/A t-top with 70k miles, I've always been a Honda guy. Are there anything I should be worried about adding coilover (2") drop with 18 beside the basics.

1. Does a 92 mr2 have power steering?
I've been reading about ps light and power steering going out/ bad relay

2. A/C seems to have r134 fittings should I switch it back to r12?

3. What is recommended oil as of today. Or what is best used
Recently honda switch to 5w20 from 5w30

1/ Skip the coilovers unless you plan to track. Decent struts & springs is better.
2/ Keep newer gas on AC and hopefuly AC is working.
3/ 10w40 semi-synthetic best for NA's.

I've never had luck with just struts and springs in Hondas or my tsx.

It will be track when motor goes, either beam or v6 motor going in I been collecting and reading post that I've found from googling it

Save your $$ for coilovers later then. Decent ones are expensive and will rattle your fillings loose.

On PS check basics then do the 30 x IGN ON/OFF trick to free up relay. Works most of the time.

Also look for the ABS fuse in the front fuse box. That fuse is used for the ABS as well as the power steering. If you don't have ABS but you do have the fuse then you have power steering.
