Upgrade front springs...

Recently I tried to find an good upgrade to my stock rt105 front springs and I was told that an early 70's trucks? was good candidate for this this. knowing this I'd be lucky to find one. Then I stumbled upon a ford Mazda courier from the early 80's. They have the same size o.d. of 4 1/2" but with much thicker coil. Also the ford is much shorter by about an inch. Here's the comparison:

Here she is with the drop cut of 2 coils:

Thanks,
rt105 or rt115? the same car as mine? if so, no you cannot use the celica as they have mcpherson struts. totally different from celicas.

well unless your rt115 came with mcpherson struts then yes.

When I got my rt105, it had a messed up signal and wiper arms and no hazard lights when turned on.. Then a friend had a 77 celica gt and I took the whole assembly and and to my surprise its a plug and play unit. Now i have a complete working unit and hazard light working.

Did so with the sun visor but it was too long.

Thanks, 73GTV but I do not do business on ebay.
I'm looking for info on what other models use the same hoses and/or manufacturer name and part #'s that I can order directly.

i bet later model toyota's will work, just make sure the length is the same, or better.



i use a 78-81 celica rear brake line as a clutch line, if you need a really long one get a 79-83 4x4 rear brake line.
