    Corona lowering options

    Hey guys/gals whats up? I am a noob to this site. I've got a few old Toyotas and I'm a huge enthusiest.
    I just picked up a nice '79 corona wagon. I was wondering if anyone had any tips, or insight on how to go about lowering this car. (without cutting springs) Any availible shock upgrades? Also, the rear suspension setup is leaf spring, and I don't have any experience modifying that style.
    Thanks everyone

    If you feel bad about cutting your only pair of springs, I sympathize. You should be able to find a similar set from another Japanese car and just cut those. Start hitting your local junkyards.


    Welcome to JNC! Love the palindromic username, BTW. :tu:
