Hi ,

I have a k plate Levin Gt Apex (ae101)and was wondering what to search for when looking for parts, i only ask as there is not much stuff that is listed as Levin parts.

I am currently looking for some shocks/coilovers....do Corolla parts fit? if so from which model(s) exaclty?

can anyone help, or even recomend some good parts.

I am in the UK

Thanks

Sy

I think the Apex has superstrut front suspension so parts will probably have to come from Japan.

hmmm funny you should mention that as i am currently looking into buying some up rated suspension and am stuck as i do not know if my car has super-strut or not?

Could anyone give me a definitive answer?

( P.S sorry for slow responce my router went down)

the superstrutt is complicated, and i dont think it is easy to upgrade to coilovers.

a superstrutt model usually wears the "superstrutt" decals proudly in front of the rear wheels. japan is probably your best bet. your model levin shares a lot of parts with the ae101 corolla fx, but fx owners have the same problem as you... not much available

thanks for the replies everyone. I am currently looking for some suspension as i mentioned. A guy was selling some ae101 Tein shocks on ebay...he said they are for super strut suspension cars .....he still has them(as far as i know) and i really would like them....but obviously only if they will fit my car!

does anyone know of a definitive way i can find out if these are suitable for my car or not?

Thanks very much

What year is your levin mate?

I can put you in touch with a company in japan to get you sorted, I have superstrut suspension in my rolla from a levin and it was a real pain to get stuff for it :lol:

Great stuff, thanks!

Its a Kreg 1993 i believe! GT Apex.

Thanks again
