Hey guys. i just got a corolla 1981 te72 coupe 2dr. Im wondering if AE86 rear springs work for the rear of my car. like TRD lowering springs for example. My only other option is the paradise racing rear coilovers but thats just about the same price as my car $500!!! i cant spend that much. thanks

hey bud... you're kinda stuck. both the TRD springs and the Paradise coils are a lot of money. as far as i know the springs will fit.

get air shocks for the rear and you'll be ablde to adjust them to your liking
also i had lincoln towncar airbags on mine (for the rear) and i slammed it with an air compressor. it will take some adjustments but its worth it:thumbup:

not 100% sure, but I think the wagons have leaf springs in the back, dont they?
