  1. Hi, Before I begin and people say to look at the ke10 suspension thread I want to say that I already have. I am in the process of lowering my ke10. I will be removing the transverse leaf. I am removing the ke10 top hats and swapping them with ke20 ones. I will also be putting in ke20 Lovell super-low springs. My question is...has anybody done this? I would also like to know if anybody has successfully changed ke10 strut inserts? Aw11 seem to be the go....
  2. My AE71/KE70 drift build. Follow along, help me out, learn things, drift things!
  3. I decided to replace my front shockies due to a major leak which caused a failed warrant of fitness. So i ripped into bnt and ordered a full set thinking all would be all cool.... Backs went in piece of piss... But to cut a long story short the front struts were completely different to the ones that i ordered. Apparently the ones i ordered were factory Carina inserts, but they have no seat for the spring?! Surely i shouldn't have to weld one on? so I'm guessing somebody along the line has converted the fronts to ke70 struts maybe?! I'll attach the struts in comparison and the list the part numbers. Because both struts have different part # Any help on the part numbers would be ideal! Please and thank you(:
  4. Hey Fellow Racers, I recently shot a view from under my KE30 whilst at the track; I though some of the suspension nerds might find it interesting (me included!). There's so many little features in the footage that you just don't see from in-car video: watching the tyre contact patch, the amount of tyre deflection, suspension travel, body roll ect. From this I found some obvious ways I can improve the grip of the car through the corners, check it out: Circled in the picture below is where the (poor) camera was mounted. The lens on the case ended up smash haha, but that happened in the paddock and not on track.
  5. Hi I'm new to this page and am wondering if anyone can tell me if corolla and corona share the same suspension layout, wanting to put coilovers in my 86 corona WAGON but having trouble finding anything, alot of corolla suspension is available so I'm wondering if they are similar, would I need to swop control arms etc or would the coilovers bolt in to my existing hubs/control arms, or is it not possible at all. Any help/advice would be much appreciated thanks!
  6. Hey Everyone, I have been meandering through previous threads and come across a general opinion. A lot of advice on suspension setup for these KE1x is geared/directed towards "high performance". I'm wondering if there is straight swaps for the struts on the front and rear that wont lower, raise stiffen etc the ride but rather keep it as intended by Toyota. I'm in the process of lookin at struts and the only ones i seem to be able to find are Pedders. (listed below) Front Shocks 8778 Pedders Cartridge Rear Shock 8032 Pedders Shock Absorber Rear Shackle Bushes / Kits EP8118 KIT REAR SPRING REAR EYE & SHACKLE I was quoted 560 just in parts, which seems a bit excessive. does anyone know of a better alternative? Regards F1
  7. Got a 2 door ke30 WTB front coilovers.
  8. First of all I'm New to this Forum and i Like to introduce myself. I am Menki and i live in Austria, i am 25 years old and working on Cars since i was 15. Also i am a certified Welder, Former and moulder, and did a lil Bit of CNC Work with Mills and lathes. So now to My car. It is a 75 ke35 Coupe Deluxe in Rust free condition and i bought it for 250€. The previos owner tried to prepare it for a respray but messed it Up. ID Like to know where are the best places to buy parts Like spares or upgrade Aftermarket. And what are your recommended Brand or sellers. AS i live in Austria its hard to find a seller who would send me stuff over seas. Unfortunetly i have never Driven a Stock ke rolla so i can't say what ID Like to Change in Suspension or engine. My idea was to build an old shool Street Racer. Maybe someone Likes to give me His advice or Share His opinion in whats usefull or where i have to Look for parts, whats interchangeable whith other Models etc. Thanks
  9. Hello all. Was wondering about the engine swap ideas in KE70 as it would be a daily driver. Fuel injected 7k will be a good idea in my opinion as it will be bolt on to the gear box and foundations. What suspension do you all suggest? I want height adjustment on both front and rear. because my parking lot is 3 feet higher then road. car cannot go inside being lowered. I want the most economical system for suspension. May be just air bags and a tank plus compressor just to lift the car up and then lower it by deflating the bags. kindly provide your valuable feedback. kind regards Danish
  10. Hey Guys, John Here...again A few weeks back I Started the topic "Lowering my KE70" Anyways I though Since I'm under the car I though I'd make some suspension improvements So Today's Questions are - Any Preferred/Recommenced Aftermarket Rear Sway Bars among KE70 Owners (e.g. whiteline etc.) (Aim is for something about 18-20mm, thicker than stock anyway) - Also What are peoples thoughs on SuperPro Bushings when I do the job, any preferred brands/Reccomendations The List of the bushings I plan on buying are as follows... - Castor Rod Bushes - LCA's (Lower Control Arm) Bushes - Upper Trailing Arm Bushes - Lower Trailing Arm Bushes - Panhard Rod Bushes (Should I get a Aftermarket Panhard rod?...If so again any Reccomendation/Preferences) If anyone would Like a image...Found this...Yes its from ebay may as well put the link (I will be Buying direct..cut out the middle man/corporation) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Suits-Toyota-Corolla-KE70-KE71-KE72-SUPER-PRO-Front-Rear-Suspension-Bush-Kit-/302164680437?hash=item465a6b1ef5:m:mNYpQnLiyNYjumubUHhlZeg
  11. Hi all, This is my first post and I'm kinda new around here but I thought I'd start documenting my 1981 Toyota Corolla Ke70 build and everything else that comes along with it :wasted: So i bought my little poo brown corolla about a month or two down in Gosford (I live in Sydney) with around 69XXX genuine kms on it off some dude looking like dis, high in the air, but on stock steelies: It was in pretty good condition bar a few dings, had close to no rust, deep dish steering wheel, new alloy radiator and started and ran! Had a pretty dodgy drive back home as the thing pretty much didnt have brakes :wave: I wish I took photos of them but it was metal on metal and looked like it had been that way for a long while... Anyway got her home and did a few things like changed the sludge (oil) in the old 4K motor, did all new pads, shoes, drums etc, the rear shocks were blown so I put some cheap shit ones in to get me through, cut 2 coils out of each of the springs for dope appeal, a AJPS adjustable panhard rod and put some 13x7" shoes on her and thats how she sits up until today: Lovin the roof racks and the granny spec louvre :lovin: After installing the Ae71 Tacho Dash, I cut the dash and centre console to fit 3 52mm gauges (which I haven't gotten around to buying yet... no real point) a double din touch screen Head deck. Also installed some 4inch speakers in the front and 6x9inch speakers in the rear. Purple Haze (Y) I decided i would focus on the suspension and brake work first while i find, buy and build an engine. so i started buying and saving a fairly long list of parts so i could put everything in in one go as it is my daily driver so..... (HOPEFULLY NEXT WEEK!) Anyway, heres what I've bought suspension wise so far: Suspension Parts List Weld on Coilover Sleve Kit (AJPS I believe) Cusco Camber Tops 8kg coils Bilstien dampers Ae86 Hubs and Vented and slotted rotors JDM Ae86 Callipers rebuild with all new seals and pots Braided lines XT130 LCA rebuilt with superpro bushes and new balljoints Ae86 P/S knuckles AJPS RCA's Hardrace Castor Arms TRD Ae86 18mm Rear Swaybar SRI front Strut Brace AJPS tie rod ends, rack rends, rack boots, lock spacer Every front end Superpro bush 6kg Rear coils BC racing rear spring seats (Eventually) Bilstien dampers in the rear All this shit is waiting ready to go and i can't wait to post again with some actual build photos and progress! :thumbsup: :rocknroll:
  12. Hey Guys, First time poster so please don't kill me. Basically today I messed up driving my KE70 in the wet. My brakes locked up so I slid and hit my front left wheel on the curb at around 25 - 30km/h. The car didn't mount the curb but it did hit it pretty hard with the wheel turned slightly to the left. Right now, my front right wheel seems to have a lot of positive camber and is constantly pulling to the right. I've pulled the wheel off to have a look at what might be bent but all appears to be fine and none of the arms seem to be bent how ever the the hub does seem to be on an angle. Also I can't freely spin the wheel when the car is jacked up like i used to. Any idea on what could possibly be wrong guys? Thanks in advance!!
  13. Hey Guys, just wondering if any of you have done any coil-over/suspension upgrades in your KE30/35's that are recommended. Also wondering what amount of work would need doing putting in AE 82/92/86/101/111 coils in a KE35 as I am interested in upgrading handling and lowering the car. Thanks All.
  14. Hi Guys, Ive just purchased a 1978 ke50 liftback that has the front springs cut and the rear leaf springs flipped (properly). I enjoy the look but don't like the rigid feel on the road (too stiff over bumps) My question is, are the springs / suspension in general, the same as the ke 55 coupe/ sedan? Are they interchangable? Also, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the lowered springs. I enjoy the lowered look but don't like the feel of the current setup. Thanks for any input, regards, Ben
  15. My front left hand shock is leaking grease on my 2005 Corolla and I am planning on fixing it myself (both front shocks). Unfortunately I won't be able to do so until I get back to my parents house (2.5hrs away) which I am doing this weekend. Before I can do that, however, I need to be able to drive to and from work this week and I was hoping to drive a couple of hours out of the way to go to an engagement party on Saturday (fix the car Sunday/Monday). Today my girlfriend drove a 5 hour round trip. At one point she hit a bump and felt the car go down but not come back up. She thought she had a flat tyre - but did not. She stopped, checked the car, found nothing and then kept driving. She didn't notice anything else abnormal on the drive. Is driving with a leaking front left shock a major issue that needs to be fixed immediately - before I drive any further? Can I get away with fixing it on Sunday/Monday after I do about 4 hours worth of driving with 3 people in the car and a small amount of luggage?
  16. So I have a KE70 1981 Toyota Corolla SR5 which is mainly stock. My springs are pretty soft seeing as they've been the same one for the last 34 years and 140,000 km. I was wondering if it would be a decent idea to go down to a pick and pull and just grab some decent ones off of a dead car or if I should bite the bullet and just buy coilovers. I just find that the car leans a lot to the outer on turning and would like a quick fix for that.
  17. hi guys! first time posting on the site! i need some help, i have just bought my first car, a yellow Ke55 manual and i want it to be sitting just right! i was wondering what the best set up would be for lowering it and how much it could cost me? Please help!! :)
  18. I have the ultimate performance conversion for your Toyota for sale! I have an import model Toyota Levin AE92, 4AGZE modified. The car was used as a track and hill climb car with all HKS after market performance upgrades such as: - HKS Twin Charger Kit turbo and supercharged - HKS Twin Intercooled with HKS manifolds and blow off valves - HKS Computers and Controllers for Turbo and Supercharger, fully adjustable - Fully adjustable HKS suspension all round - Disc brakes all round with supra brakes - Performance rims with slicks - Fully adjustable brake bias in car - Comes with a limited slip diff/gear box as spare, has minor jamming problem - There was over $20,000 in parts put into this car originally when built - I want $6,000 for this car, it resides in Sydney, NSW - Call Lee if you are interested in buying this car 0403 725 166 - Still good for a track car but would be an awsome donor car for a performance car/ boy racer conversion
