  1. Look up the full set of part numbers and google.... Australia has the car [Corona, out there] so lots of springs 'in the wild' 🙂 2sav
  2. Hi..... I have a front splitter [... err, and it's staying, thanks!] but I really would like a Saloon Bootspoiler to match 🙂 My springs are factory/original.... But a full refresh of Dampers/Droplinks/ARB bushings were supplied by MicksGarage, Ireland. About £250.... AND they 'got them for me' >>> as opposed to Web sites cheaper but Not In Stock 😞 Get some pictures up then..... 2sav
  3. I reckon if 'Salvage Rebuilds UK' <u tube> flipped a Carina... BOL on a £50 matching paint wing M8 🙂 ... you would start getting some serious 'clicks'. The Car That Time Forgot [you and I, both 😞 ] 2sav
  4. .... Well, mebbies those who haven't the benefit of testdriving something else? 🙂 2sav
  5. I think 'diy or £££bespoke' will be the way ahead, m8. As with all things 'period' (thinking of circuit racers in '60s with Magnesium wheels = today those wheels will be porous/brittle wall ornaments) you might find they have all disappeared into the great beyond.... Sad but Troo 😕 Getting a 'certified' top spec rollcage made [not at M8s R8s] will be 2nd mortgage territory.... Make your own with 50mm copper pipe and wrap with GorillaTape - daft, I know, but it's the look your after, really.... BOL 2sav
  6. https://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/213021/1976-toyota-crown-super-saloon Oooooff! 🙂 2sav
  7. Perhaps Hot Corolla modders have trod this path....? Likely they are the same part/do the same thing.... so alternatives may be known. 2sav
  8. Coming up to 30yo, now basking in the raucous rust bath which is 'the NE' 😕 , I can see some scabbiness on the rear suspension arms (well sprayed with corrosion resisting gloop notwithstanding)... I'm just saying... 48710-20060 & 48720-20050 .... Different sides. Anyone have a crocked 87 - 91 Carina/Camry/Lexus ? = all same part I think a clean/sound pair 'on the shelf' might be good strategy >> on the car, even better! 2sav
  9. Hi Matt & thanks...... MicksGarage [Ireland] got me everything for dampers/arb bushings/arb droplinks. The front dampers are a 'screw-in' insert! I am standard ride height.... My OZ alloys + tyre combo is exactly factory 13" tyre rolling diameter. VW 4x100 stud pattern. A lad over on RetroRides fitted twingo. just a slightly lower et, tyres are 185 65 14. Plain steel. *note: The 2.0L are 5stud. I'm trying to source a factory 'boot lid spoiler' for the saloon.... Mine already specced as front chin-lip.... God "rocky horse poo" they are!! Sorry some piccies are knakked... Photo#uckit did for some and (on this forum) we can't re-edit past entries to renew links. Glad you have seen other C2s about.... Here in Newcastle I'm deffo the only one. 2sav
  10. Well, it's been a bit windy of L8 😞 ..... chunk of cement chimney 'flashing grout' landed on my blummin roof!! Well, at least it didn't smash my moonroof/rear window..... Not really the up-side I find entirely heartening >> bumh#ts & Grrrrrrrr 2sav
  11. Ha Ha.... Not a 'Ricer' m8 2sav
  12. I'm having a total 'mare sourcing a factory 'bootlip' wing for mine, m8. The 2.0L is regarded a bit iffy for serious revving.... A long legged loper + ideally on an Auto (see: Camry). You can't save em all..... 2sav

But "Supply = Demand + ££" 2sav
