I had been getting a lot of spring noise when turning with the new suspension setup, so I bought Fortune Auto's Radial Bearing Mount upgrade to fix the issue. finally got around to installing them today

If anyone is interested in the who/what/when/why/how, all that mumbo jumbo can be found here.

I feel like they should have just came from the factory with these steering wheels on Lol. I see these steering wheels on AE86s more than I do the oem wheel, or any other aftermarket for that matter.

I found the car via goo-net exchange. But that's pretty much just a website for local dealerships to post their inventory. They do not ship nor buy cars for people. You will have to arrange all of that yourself.

Went to a little car show thats hosted throughout the year by a buddy of mine and his friends, SouthernRoots. I invited two other fellow AE86 owners (we've never met each other in person) to come so we can have our own little section 8-) 8-)

Multiple AE86s in the same spot is a VERY rare occurrence here in Kentucky.

And a 4th showed up later on in the evening! KYHachi and EvoSolley should recognize the car :lol:

Nice! Those tires are super duper thick!!! I'm shopping around for wheel/tire/ suspension stuff now. I still have my inner fender guards on ao i have to be careful! I don't intend on taking them out. they already rub the Celica supras.

YES!! There was actually a 5th one out in the parking lot, we tried waiting around for the owner to get him to come park with us but by the time he came around it was too late. We all had a good long chat about Corollas and 4ag motors, asking eachother questions etc. Very humbling moment finally meeting everyone, especially in this day and age where the car "scene" can be very cliquey at times.

Lol I prefer the old-school meaty look on these cars. Plus these tires are pretty affordable for a performance summer tire ... I just wish they offered them a 185/60 or 195/50 or something like that because even after rolling the fenders they still rub quite a bit over certain corners and harsh bumps. In the front its mainly the little tab where the bumper meets the fender. But they feel great and look good so its a trade-off I guess.
