Squeaky (steering) wheel gets the grease?

Hi All, The steering wheel on my '86 has been making a lot of noise these days.Its a kind of squeaking squealing a bit like a quieter version of peeling out. I was hoping I could just spray some lubricant up in there an that it will fix the problem. Any recommendations on lubes I should use or avoid...

Re: Any leads on window glass?

Thanks for the leads. I was actually planning to head to California in the next few days so might see what’s around there. The windshield is fine (minus a crack in that’s been there awhile). they got the big glass on the hatchback, the passenger side front door, and the fixed glass on the rear passe...

Any leads on window glass?

Howdy folks,
Someone decided it would be fun to smash in a few of my windows last night. So that’s fun. I live in Vancouver and called a couple glass places but they said the parts are obsolete. Any suggestions on places to track down glass?
Thanks,
Calen

Re: strut spacers

Hey Jim,are this still available? If so I'd be very interested. What part of Canada are you in? I just moved to Vancouver (from D.C.) and could pick up in person if you're in the area.

Re: Celica strut retrofitting

Nick,
Hope you were able to get the tercel out of the ditch. I just had a quick question about this lift. Did you reinstall the rear sway bar or did you leave it off after you were done?
Thanks.

Re: WTB: Celica GTS spring for lift

I haven't been able to find aftermarket springs to match the Celica GTS stock springs that would give the right amount of lift for the Tercel. All the after markets I've run into seem to be for lowering the Celica. Has anyone has come across an after market spring that would work for the lift listed...

WTB: Celica GTS spring for lift

Howdy folks, I'm finally getting around to doing a front and rear lift on my 86 (pathfinder springs in back, Celica GTS springs in front). I finally tracked down a Celica GTS in a salvage yard near me. Unfortunately, by the time I got there the car only had the drivers side spring left. I have all t...

Re: OEM Front Suspension Parts & Numbers

Didn't come with any grease so I'll stick with silicone. I should go with the dry as opposed to the wet kind, right? Thanks for all

Reviving an old thread here but I came across something that looks like it might work: http://wescoperformance.stores.yahoo.net/3pt-roadster-seatbelt-bench-help.html Its a 2 point mount as opposed to the normal three point and has the retractor up top like the Aussie tercs have it.

Re: OEM Front Suspension Parts & Numbers

Hi all,
I ordered all the parts listed and am hoping to install them next week. I was wondering if y'all had recommendations for something I can put on the rubber bushings to help keep them from drying out over time. Should I just spray them occasionally with silicone lube? Thanks.

Re: Pulling to the left

My money is on the rubber suspension parts. The sway bar bushings look pretty beat up so I can only guess what the rest of the rubber is like. I'm planning to do some front end suspension work later in the year (have to tackle the transmission and vacuum system first), so I'll just have to put up wi...

Here's what I've got: "Frankensteined" door panels- Back in Dec I stumbled upon a beautiful '87 at a pick'n...

Re: Redline 75-90 NS: Good tranny lube!

Synth, is this the stuff you're using: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000ONZXPK/ref ... B009NGELU2

I'm not getting a great shift from 2nd to 3rd with the Redline so I think I might do a couple 50/50 flushes and then switch to the Mobil.
