Are the side-markers clear or missing? Either way they look a lot better than the USDM fenders.


Its what the rest of the world gets, the side markers are behind the front wheel, only the US got the side markers in front of the wheel for some strange reason, must be something to do with your road laws/regulations???

I know, the picture isn't the best in the world and I don't see any orange. You can see something there, but you can't tell if it's a hole or a clear lens. There are lots of cars sold over here that have them in the JDM location, so who knows. Why the Celica has the front side-markers I'll never know anyway since the turn signals wrap around and meet the requirements for side-markers in the way that the tail-lights do.

nice stuff going on here. whats the offset. your tires could use some more meat on them to cover fit the monster truck gaping. those look like some 205/45R17 tires....

Thanks! I believe the size is 215/40-17, and the offset is 40mm. Oh and Box I do have sidemarkers, they're just clear. I really need to get some decent pictures of my car.

I like the JDM rubber mat, do you have the link to the supplier? I have looked on ebay with no success. Just for interest, my tyres are 235/45/17, they fit well with no scrubbing and thats with a 38 offset. so if you want to go a little wider, you can :)

cheers

I bought that from a member on here. They're quite rare and I've never seen another for sale. I got lucky finding this one. Just keep looking and I'm sure you'll find one.

Bumping this from the dead! Started work on the rear bushings. That s*** effing sucks. Going to have to drop the whole sub frame now. I'm also having trouble getting the bolts that connect the hub off. The good news is I got brakes and strut off the passenger side. Once I can figure out how to remove the hub bolts I can move onto getting the big bolt out from the hub.

Dropping the subframe is pretty much mandatory. Removing those hub is literally 80 percent of what makes this job suck. Buy a torch, or buy a press, and good luck

I have all of those so I'm prepared. I'm just hoping I can get those two bolts off the hub.

Lots of Liquid Wrench and let it sit for awhile. If you have a bottle torch hit it with that and it'll make life a lot easier. Another thing you might try if you have it on hand is mixing ATF and acetone 50/50 to use as penetrating oil.

Progress today! The entire sub frame is off. I couldn't get two of the bolts off the passenger side hub nor could my dad. The long bolts through the hub are also stuck in both sides. Going to see if the shop can get them out and the hub bolts too. I'm also going to have them press out the old bushings and press in the new ones.

Yep yep. Ready to get my suspension done. I'll take it on one last drive before the beams. After working on the rear suspension I'm more confident in my ability to do an engine swap.

Just take your time and double check everything and you'll be fine. Plus all the nice folks here will catch you should you fall, time after time. Ahhh, now that song is playing in my head. *goes to YouTube*

Bushings were finished today. Lot of money for some bushings and bolt removal. Oh well..... they're done. This weekend I will reinstall everything to the frame. Hopefully my new bolts will be in by then too.
