    My: 85 GX71 Mark II GT

    Well Ive owned lots of old school Japanese cars but never a legit and extremely rare JDM car, got her a couple of days ago and since then Ive been cleaning her doing all the maintenance and taking care of all the little things wrong with her.

    Car specs:
    1985 Toyota GX71 Mark II GT Model
    Twin turbo 1G-GTE engine
    24 valve twin cam
    OEM 2 way 8 inch LSD differential

    Suspension:
    Front: JIC front coilovers with camber plates
    Rear: Ae86 springs and shocks

    Interior:
    Completely stock and beautiful other than half a cage and bucket driver seat.

    Wheels:
    Rare SSR MK1's
    front:14x8 -0 offset 4.5 inch lip
    rear: 14x9 -25 offset 5.5 inch lip

    Future plans well for now keep on with the maintenance and later on 2013 a good paint job

    All right on with the pics:

    Nice car. Good to see that you are going to maintain it first. I think maintenance and general functionality should always come before lowering and appearances. (That is probably why my car looks the way it does) For a big boxy JNC, this looks good.

    FWIW, improperly adjusted toe is most often what kills tires, camber not so much. :tu:
