  3. Need Parts Or It's The End Of The Road

    Have a word with the guy at Toyota Celica Breakers (TCB) - he's got all sorts of stuff in stock and should be able to help. Here's the link to the TCB website

  5. Suspension Suffering - Upgrade Options?

    Hi Charlie, Welcome to TOC and just up the road from me as well. I've been through several suspension setups on my 1998 E11 Corolla. First off were Eibach lowering springs and though they are more expensive than some other makes they were sold by TTE (Toyota Team Europe) as an official optional extra for the E11. These were used with standard shocks and lowered my Corolla by about 30mm so nothing too drastic. After that I added Koni adjustable shocks because I had a supercharged 4A-GZE engine transplant and had to support the extra weight. Unfortunately they didn't last very long with the extra weight but they were good while they worked. I wasn't sure what to do with the suspension so I had a full chassis / suspension analysis done which came up with some figures to work with. Caster and camber angles, spring rates, ride height, anti-roll bar size etc. Now I'm running Cusco zero 2 coilovers with the softest springs Cusco do. With the heavier engine these are perfect :clap:for me. If you want some more detail of the changes I've made to my Corolla take a look at my website. In your situation with a standard Corolla I'd go for KYB uprated shocks and Eibach springs all available from Fensport. Clicky Cheers John

  11. E11 Convertions

    A Worcester phone number , any idea where abouts in Worcester he is based? Yes he's still there, still working on Toyotas. Kevin is the guy who did my 4A-GZE conversion and has done lots of other work on my AE111. He's in Droitwich. John

  13. My '00 Facelift Corolla Sr Vvti

    Steve, my Rays are 7" wide with 42mm offset and rubber is 195 wide so I had a bit more clearance than you.
  14. My '00 Facelift Corolla Sr Vvti

    Steve, I had the same problem with my rear Rays rims scrapping the Cusco coilovers. I managed to get 3mm spacers from Co-ordSport who supplied me with the rims and suspension. They did the trick for me - might work for you. John
