Bill's Suspension Mods

(1/1)

BigMike:
Bill has the following great suspension ideas:


Get some Supra springs from a wrecking yard. They have a higher spring rate than the Corolla springs, and we can chop the Supra springs down a bit to lower the car 1" or so.

Sirdeuce:
I already have plans to modify the strut tubes as they are not the type with a nut to enable cartridge replacement. If we lower the car we'll want a shorter cartridge. Shorter stroke. Need to find dimensional listings on available shocks. Parent vehicle weight, performance level( a GTS has a better performance valving than an SR5, etc.).
Sway bars......
We could do the old school drifter trick of using 2 stock sway bars. Just need to devise a way to link then together. A hard plastic like Delrin with a steel strap maybe?
Bushings..............
We could get black urethane bushings, Bead blast the hell out of them to make them not look like urethane, blah blah.

Sirdeuce:
Need to look at the steering knuckles on power and non power steering. Which never is shorter will give a better steering response. Also check out lock to lock on other racks that would fit. Go cart steering anyone?
