Double post?

Cross posting huh? I shall report you.







kidding, but no need to open another thread of the same thing though.

take the spoiler off and throw some blocks and 94-95 spoiler on there it'll look better.

I was actually considering raiser blocks in the beginning, but i like the supra inspired wing better. plus my budget was way too low for raiser blocks anyway..kindasad.gif i still have my stock wing but its just sittin in the garage now.

Wish my car brought that spoiler stock, I have a 96 so I have the 3 post spoiler and I have to drill my own holes to put on the 2 post spoiler which sucks.

Blocks ain't all that expensive $130 shipped

look in the buying/selling thread. there should be a FS custom decals thread. the guys account is "decalsondemand" he custom made it for me. originally it said "i love my supra" but since the celica looks like a supra, i asked him to change the words to celica for me tongue.gif i LOVE it

ordered my Megan Racing coilovers Wednesday night. hoping to receive them by tomorrow smile.gif
HectortheRican
Man you're lucky that upscale had them in stock. I ordered mine on May 18th and they were on back order. Initially, the wait was 3 weeks. It kept getting extended and extended and it turned into 11 weeks. Then when they were supposed to be in America from Taiwan, they unloaded the truck and they weren't there. Turns out the dumba$$es in Taiwan duped up the load and didn't get the container of the Celica coils onto the truck. That really pissed me off so I cancelled my order LOL.

Told ya! Mannn, I'm so jealous right now. Be careful with your rear endlinks. If I were you, I'd replace them. I already have brand new Racing Beat ones for when I can get my BC coils.
jordisonjr
^Howcome you suggest replacing endlinks?
HectortheRican
Well because you're putting performance suspension parts on your car. It'll be lower, and more than likely stiffer. The endlinks connect from the rear struts to the rear sway bar. There'll be more of a load on them because of the different suspension characteristics and the performance endlinks will handle it better.

Hope to see pics of those installed tonight!

So does that mean they should be shorter than stock as well?
I've never really gotten a good grasp on the concept of upgrading endlinks.
Mine are after market as well, but the factory length.

From what I know off the top of my head, you want to put them at whatever length necessary to keep slack out of the sway bar.

x2

You don't want a lot of preload on the swaybar since it's a DD, you know? That'll make the suspension go bad faster. A safe bet would be to make the new endlinks the same length as the old ones.

where can i get these endlinks?

These are the exact ones I have. They're for a Mazda Miata, but the rears work on our cars. Plenty of other members have them on theirs

the endlinks should be the last product on the line. Click on the link that says "1990-97 Front/1990-05 Rear"

got my coilovers installed smile.gif will post pictures tomorrow after carwash.
sunwukongg





didn't get a carwash because it was raining. but i got some photos of it tonight. this is the out of the box height of the megan coilovers installed on my car. took about 4 hours to install with a buddy. front brake lines didnt mount up so i used stainless steel zipties. the rears mount up perfectly however smile.gif wouldve been faster if the old bolts and nuts werent so stubborn >:( its hard to tell cause its night time how low it got. but basically before there was a 4 finger wheel gap. and now i cant even put my finger in. the rear was 2 1/2 finger gap, and now i cant put my finger in there either. damper adjustment to 26. pretty stiff already, but i LOVELOVELOVE the handling now smile.gif i feel MUCH safer taking corners and much more confident.
whatthe
Car looks heaps better, and have fun with the handling too biggrin.gif
sunwukongg
forgot to mention that i swapped out my old muffler a while back for a carbon fiber burnt tip nrg muffler smile.gif. the muffler i previously had(Greddy Evo 2) sounded louder and was a lot larger, but it got messed up.


and a random picture i took today

Nononono. ONLY the rear Miata ones will work for our cars. The only reason they're even an option is because they're thicker than the rear ones for Celicas. I'm not sure why the Miata fronts don't work for us, but they don't. You'll get the rear pair for $59. It's better than going to AutoZone and getting ones of the Celica of equal performance, I checked. The Moog rears for our cars, $65... EACH. Hell no. Lol

hey dude. you live in westminster?!! thats pic you randomly took of your car is right next to the 22 fwy on the other side of the toyota dealer. Your cars in front of the indoor/outdoor soccer place right. I next to cypress high school. Tires looked sucked in unfortunately. although very nice drop and you didn't even lower it.

Are you saying that the rear miata's are thicker than the two's r us???
