Yaris Front Suspention Leg

Recommended Posts

hello to all

my cars driver side front coil spring snapped this morning.

local shops told me that it is around gbp50 per spring(around gbp 100 for 2).

i saw in ebay a front suspension leg for 1.0 with a delivered price of gbp42.

my plan now is to buy this set instead of just replacing the coil spring so that it will be straightforward.

i just want to ask if the front suspension legs for a 1.0 is the same with 1.3(with abs)?

i am looking forward for your advise please.

thank you very much.

I suspect the springs are different due to the different engine weights. I suspect the brake calipers may be different.

I would only replace like with like .

Never replace one spring. They should always be renewed in pairs. Be very careful when buying from ebay. I know people who hjave bought very cheap parts and that is just what they are! I have seen brake callipers which were positively lethal. Go to a good motor factor and get a quote from a firm like Blueprint.

I think the springs are different because in most generations, the 1.3s sit a little lower than the 1.0s. You could probably switch out both the front springs for 1.3 springs but then you would be nose-diving a bit and probably straining the front of the car under braking and it's just all round not a great idea.
