  1. WANTED - KE20 black rear seat - KE20 brown passenger seat
  2. Hello all, I need some advice/ideas! I have a KE20 with standard struts. It has lowered King Springs and alloy rims running Potenza RE003 195/50R15 rubber. It sits a fair bit lower than standard. Problem 1: Due to being lowered the camber is way out, and my tires wear excessively on the inside. KE20's have no stock camber adjustment. Problem 2: When driving straight the steering will pull suddenly to one side, like someone is yanking the steering wheel down. It's more noticeable the faster I drive. I don't think there's any worn bushings etc in the steering components (although I'm no mechanic). CAMBER QUESTIONS - I'm aware you can slot out the bolt holes in the strut tower, but I'm not keen to do that. - should I get camber tops like the Suspension Concepts ones and keep the springs I have (I'm happy with the height etc) (about AUD$500/pair) - should I get the T3 ones bearing in mind they require their weld on coil over kit (camber tops and weld on kit about AUD$1000 delivered) - should I also/instead get roll center adjusters? T3 offer some for the KE20. - will camber tops ruin comfort, and are they noisy? (some people claim this is an issue as they remove the rubber strut top) STEERING QUESTION - does my problem sound like bump steering due to the suspension being changed from stock? - could it be worn bushes etc in the steering setup, if so, what should I check? - how can I fix it while maintaining my current ride height?

  3. Thanks for the vehicle history guys!
  4. Hey, I now own this. Would love to chat about the vehicles history and get some background. Send me a message, thanks mate!
  5. If you can find the old ad let me know I've only recently got it. It does need some work.
  6. Here she is. Hope you like my KE20
  7. Thanks for all that info Pete! I already love the ol' girl. Just needs a bit of TLC. Which it's gonna get! (sorry bank account) haha
  8. Thanks for the reply! My vehicle is: 1974 Corolla KE20 2 door Coupe Engine: 3K 1.2L (EDIT: it's actually got a 4K in it!) Gearbox/Trans: 5 speed (I think its a T50) Carbs: 2 x Webber 40 DCOE 151 New exhaust and extractors New "minilite" style rims with Potenza RE003's A bad paint job The previous owner told me (but I can't confirm) that it has a hot cam, new valves and pistons.
  9. Hey there, I've recently got my first KE20. This forum seems like it'd be a great source of knowledge, but it seems kinda dead? Probably due to social media and the fact you can't upload photos?!? Anyone still here???? I already have a lot of questions, so I hope someone still hangs around here! - Can you buy the inner wheel arch plate that bolts in at the rear of the front wheel well (if that makes sense)? Or is it easier to fabricate a new one? - My rollla has a replacement dash which is too narrow and doesn't fit correctly? Shitty aftermarket part and they're all like that or should I find a new one? - Any good links to how to tune WEBBER 40's? - Anyone added a remote (servo) brake booster? The stock anchors are pretty average - WHERE TO BUY REAR SPOILER? Anyone found a nice TOM's Performance one or anything? I have one which has been very poorly installed by previous owner - Any good screw/bolt kits to buy? - Places to check for rust? Window sills, foot wells, and spare tyre hole are all pretty clean? Any other spot that rollas rust out I should check? - Are they too early for VIN numbers? Can only find engine/model/chassis numbers. Thanks in advance! James
