Re: New Annex Coilovers or...Old faithful TRD Blues etc..

I felt like a lot of that convo went over my head haha


If we do go with the bg annex/fa or wahtever.. do you guys think we need to or should reinforce that rear shock tower of the chassis?

I guess I like to know maybe I should create a new thread but where we should strngthen our chassis?

thanks

Re: 20v bt refresh/swap

Looking good.

Question I have is would you not get a better transmission? Like w58 or J160 etc? Just wondering because I am debating whether or not to rebuild my transmission vs just buying a better one.

So tempting to do a 20V but the money haha so I have to stick with stock for now

Re: New Annex Coilovers or...Old faithful TRD Blues etc..

Aim to keep the front LCA's at the factory angles, either by using roll centre adjusters if you want to lower the car or by keeping the ride height close to stock. Use springs to absorb the bumps, dampers to control the springs and anti-roll (sway) bars to tune the handling. I would consider adjust...

Re: New Annex Coilovers or...Old faithful TRD Blues etc..

I would go with the new annex or FA coilovers. I been researching a bit and I may spring (no pun intended) for the annex.

I plan to set up about the same as you 90% daily.

This guy up here just moved to annex as well on his rebuild

Re: T50 Rebuild kit

Just wondering if a full kit cost about 500

Is it not worthwhile to upgrade to anw series or j series transmission?

Is the t series that good?

Just wondering the benefit of rebuild vs different transmission. Thanks
