Right, i finally decided to get off my arse with this thing, 2 trips on bad country rds has made the decision for me. The front lip and quad light are gonna have to wait for a while, hopefully I'm ordering some new koni sports mr2 inserts in the next few weeks and then I'm gonna be making up some new coilovers front and rear with some new springs to get rid of the shitty kings progressives that ive got at the moment. If time permits, I'm going to setup an equal length four link setup in the rear also.


Watch this space, I'm going to do a proper write up on the struts and four link setup. :dance:

Hey nice rolla,

How easy is it to fit the Celica diff, is there much difference in the way of mounts/springseats etc? I think you said in a post on AE86dc it sits further back. Is it minor or did you overcome this?


its not to major, it has an unmodified celica diff in it in the pics, that should give you an idea on how it fits.

also, the top bushes need a bit of persuasion to get them in but they fit and the panard bar might be the wrong length. if u pm me the length of your panard bar, i'll measure mine to see how far off it is.

i had a little mishap with the beaver, i was putting it in and i broke the head off 1 of the mounting bolts. After a smoke and a little swearing it was decided 2 leave the beaver off till i get a chance 2 fix it properly. don't worry about the yoki sticker, i have more :jamie:











Also, shut up, i'll get it done when I'm not poor :P

Alrighty, Ive finally started pouring some cash into this thing. I've bought the Koni inserts i was planning to get ages ago ($2600 all up, that hurt) and i am slowly gathering the bits and pieces for the suspension work. Ive got the seamless tube for all my link bars, panard and front end, my hidiously expensive shocks, my rose joints and a nice set of XT130 struts prepped and ready to go. I pretty much need some new rotors, springs, coilover kits, some steel and i can start playing.


Planned suspension mods include:


Equal length 4 link

full rose joints (everywhere, including the tierods and ball joints)

new coilovers front and rear with 8 point bump and rebound adjustment (hence $2600)

adjustable front and rear roll centers

fabricated swaybars similar to the ones earlier in this thread

more link adjustment in the rear


and prolly a few other things that i'll take photos of but can't remember atm


I'll be putting a few piccy's up in the next few days
