Re: Swift springs(8/6k) damper choice

Dam, just reading around led me to believe 8/6 set up would be more tolerable as a daily than you described. Must be all the drift kids' opinions. Well, maybe I'll just give it a try first, shouldn't be too hard to get some money back later if I end up not liking it. Also from what I've read, going ...

WTB: Rear SS shocks for 86 (SoCal)

A pair of used AGX would be perfect, mainly just need something that is short stroke and and half way decent. Local pick up preferred, but let me know what you got.

thanks,

Re: '85 GTS build

Went to change out my rear springs and noticed that the bottom rubbers for the springs were basically not there anymore, i'm thinking that was the noise I was hearing. Since it was mainly on deceleration, the springs were probably having trouble staying in place when the weight was shifting forward....

Swift springs(8/6k) damper choice

So I just picked up a set of swift (8/6k) springs. I was told that the front springs have half (.5) coils cut out. Seller said it was about a 3inch drop all around and he was running tokico blues with no problem. On the T3 website for their HTS full stroke says its for cars with 2.5 inch drop or les...

So I didnt take any pictures this weekend, but i think my mystery sound is coming from the diff. when in 4th or 5th gear and engine braking there is a definite howling from the rear. And it seems to be more rough sounding now. I'm guessing its cause the car is pretty low and its putting stress on th...

Thanks guys, ya the main thing it has going for it is a pretty strait body. The motor smokes and stinks alot(maybe exhaust leak), but it still runs surprisingly smooth.

Re: Where is the love for the AE86.

But this thread reminds me that its all about the car, I chose to buy an 86. Not because it was the best choice, but because I wanted one. I was startin...

Re: Where are you now corolla?

Life happened! I had to move to take care of a loved one, so i shed most of my belongings and moved. things are much better now so i figure I'd try to get back into it. not much luck so far here in socal. the corolla's are either too nice or too beat up, but somehow always too expensive for me. :lol:
