Re: Shocks for my All Trac...TURTCEL

My car doesn't actually sag at all...but when you put a load in the back it definitely drops down a bit. I am going to try the round rubber spring spacers mentioned by DLB...looks super easy to do and I will do a set of shocks at the same time as well. The shocks are the factory ones so the are read...

Re: Shocks for my All Trac...TURTCEL

I found some old but new monroe air adjustable shocks that are able to be pumped up when I need them. Have left the old springs on as the shocks are now doing a bit more work. they fit tercel and some other old cars as well and have a air valve that I can increase the pressure on when I need them. ...

Shocks for my All Trac...TURTCEL

Any of you Corolla Allt Trac owners or previous owners have any advice on what shocks I should get for the rear on my 1988 Corolla DLX All Trac Wagon? I am wanting to get a stiffer shock so that the back end doesn't sag so much with a load. I know most of the forum members here seem to like KYB for ...

Re: 1986 Toyota Tercel 4WD All Original - $5000 (santa rosa,

So the craigslist ad says 210000 miles and the forum ad says 126000 miles on the car...just curious as to how many miles it has.

Re: Tercel body transplanted onto 4runner chassis?

Im guessing it is powered by the 4 Runner engine then. Nice upgrade all around if you ask me.

Re: brownie gets a face lift, my 86 2wd

HaHa, that makes it a "sleeper", right?

Car looks good...desert colors, or close to the original paint color?

Re: Got an All Trac to add to my fleet...TURTCEL

I am not looking to up my tire size. I would just like to up the wheel size to get rid of some of the wishy washy feeling when driving with a tire having such a large side wall. Just like the Terc...I would like to put 14 inch wheels on that too for the same reason. I got the 14 inch tire size optio...

Re: Got an All Trac to add to my fleet...TURTCEL

So I am wanting to buy a set of aluminum wheels for the new All-Trac . I am going with a set of 14 inch wheels and was wondering what tire size to go with? I see that the factory option was a 185/65R14, are there any other options that anyone would suggest? The car is an automatic so I don't want to...

Re: Got an All Trac to add to my fleet...TURTCEL

Yeah I ended up replacing the cracked manifold with a new one. Local parts store actually stocked a complete kit for $110 with a lifetime warranty. Fit perfectly. I do need to replace the front flex pipe now. It separated at the flex joint and the pipe when I was removing the manifold. Go the manifo...

Re: Canada Takes Home A Rust Free '87

Heck Yeah!!!! Glad to hear that Everett is an official Maple Leaf now. Sometimes inspectors can be overly nitpicky...as well as completely blind to other things.
