Okay well that makes sense, thanks for letting me know man. I looked at it for about 15 min trying to figure out how the hell it would work... lol.

And sick corona by the way!!! I love watching the build on this thing, keeps getting better and better!

Yea I think 78 was the last year of the long arm short arm setup in 79 went to struts which is waaaaaaayyyyy easier to do. I'd just get all the Celica stuff and hammer it. I have 3 in blocks in the back and pulled the helper springs
Thanks for the compliments guys. I haveva few things to update on it

if it has rear leaf springs you can remove the bottom load leaf install 3 inch blocks and camaro rear shocks and that will tuck your tires, the front you would have to cut coils 1 at a time till your ok with it.

need any help let me know im in orlando.

did you use lowering springs for the front on top of flipping the ball joints?
