Please don't. It looks soooooo perfect right now. 8)


It's more of a case of having to really....i'm using it everyday and it's bottoming out on the crappy roads around me :( On the positive side,i raised the front on a jack by 2 cm just get get a feel for the look and because of the shadow cast by the wheel arch,it doesn't alter the look that much.

That means it's time for shorter inserts, and maybe shorten the strut bodies too... :tu: :mrgreen:

It's double wishbone suspension with the springs sitting in those big ass cups that are part of the crossmember.....the seperate shock runs through the middle of the spring bolts to the lower wishbone and the cup on the x member. That's not bottoming,the lower wishbone is contacting the cross member.
Stiffer springs and shocks are the long term answer,these are way too soft to be running this low......unfortunately,bank account says no.

And you should start a thread of your own on it. :tu:

Yep the 73-77 had them. Only engine available here. Then it became the Cressida. When i got rid of my 85 supra I had actually thought of putting in my 5mge in the Mark II. They the logistical thought got in the way and got too good of an offer for it. I have a bunch more pics of it when i had it disassembled. Then i ended up putting it back together for transport and sale. Im even gatting all of the parts that went with the car when it was sold.

Well i managed to get the front up by about a cm and stiffen it up at the same time.....Even by this small amount,the ride is sooo much better and now i can go over bumps at way over crawling pace.
I prefered it lower,but it was a small sacrifice to make i think.

I took some more pics to celebrate.

Those rims are KONIGS?? :shock: They look like SSR Mk 3s. lol

Are they Konigs or Koenigs(jdm wheel)? If they are Konigs, that is a very sweet knockoff. :)

I think those are the Konig B-Bombs. Have not seen to many of them yet. Certainly a good looking wheel and I would love a set for my Cressida.

Looks fantastic. Love the way it looks - the little lip sets it off at the front.

Must admit, I wouldn't bother with the pod filter. Big fan of the stock air cleaner and probably more functional.

Have you considered a single DCOE Weber carbie?




Not meaning to hijack thread, but the brown coupe on the first page is mine and the motor is a 2JZGE (not a 6MGE).

Cheers guys.....yeah,they are the b.bombs (konig),ssr mk3s on a budget!

I have considered a weber,also bike carbs......but i'm really after a sensibly priced 18rg.

Sorry if you already mentioned this, but do you know the offset of those wheels?
