So my "to do" job list is growing, and I won't bore you with the details at the moment, but I'm looking into having the rear suspension arms up-rated as I need to find out where this knocking noise is coming from. It's really confusing as it doesn't happen all the time or over all bumps. I've had the car up in the air and looked, and have tried swinging on all the suspension arms both unloaded and loaded, but I will work out what it is soon.
The next real job is looking into the brakes, as I've said in the past, I want to convert the rear brakes to discs, and have been told both the old Celica and Avensis parts fit, but what I don't want to do is have the car off the road for any period of time.
A.P Racing have been the only company that responded to my inquiry about upgrading the discs both front and rear, but I need to spend sometime working out what rear end upgrades I need, that way I can have all the parts in a box ready to fit, in the hope it will be a simple swap (famous last words). The budget for the brakes currently stands at 4x what I paid for the car, which I hope is just about enough... lol
I'm also still after a pair of front wings, and boot lid, and a couple of doors, so keep your eyes peeled for me please (in white if possible).
I also seem to be struggling to find someone in Dorset that could do the set up for me, I've had a local car garage do the tracking for me, but sadly the steering wheel isn't straight, neither is the tracking. But I think after I have had the rear arms done, then I will get all the set up done.
I've also had zero luck with bushes, and have been told to measure the ones on my car, but short of taking everything off the car to do so, I'm not sure how I would go about doing this. What would be really handy is a garage that I could drive in, they put it up on ramps, and have boxes of bushes on the shelf ready to fit lol.
