I have a very soft spot for these Corollas but I don't know the first thing about slamming them. Just wanted to say welcome :)

Yea, I'm not sure either.
You could lift up your car, take some pictures of the suspension, go to a junkyard and find an ae92 take pictures, go home and compare.

I have one of these but a hatch, with a 1.8 twin cam 7A-FE, great little cars.



From what I've been told AE92 / AE101 / AE111 suspension should all be interchangable with little or no modification.

FYI, that offset (and width) is VERY aggressive for your car. Be aware you'll most likely need to roll/pull the fenders, and maybe install fender flares to cover them.

my kid brother has one of those, ee90 with a 1.3 liter and 4speed and no options what so ever :mrgreen: That model corolla was the most sold car model over here for years. Great cars but rust like hell in our climate, nowadays most survivors gets shipped to africa, africans buy them like crazy. If im not remembering all wrong you need an et of 35 or higher to fit a 7" wide rim in there, you might be able to get an 8" wide in there but thats cutting in close. Ive seen plenty of cars with 16" and 17" rims but bigger than that might be tricky.
That us spec front end is fugly, you should get a euro front end on that.
