I would be interested in the rebuilt 4a-c, I would give you cash for just the engine. Can you give any more specifics on the rebuild?

What brand of lift kit can you suggest?
There is no lift kit available from any manufacturer. If you read this thread you will see the different ways you can go about lifting a tercel. Often these lifts are an accumulation of parts from other vehicles.

Re: BRAND NEW MONROE MA700 AIR SHOCKS WITH ADAPTER

Two open questions: 1) any good source for 1 inch aluminum spacers the right size? I might go cutting board since I keep things cheap but worth the ask. 2) With the Monroes, remove the rear stabilizer bar? My intuitions lean stock but I remember reading Petros advising that the rigidity is achieved...

Re: 83 tercel tranny

Unfortunately you have broken the rarest part of our cars. The tercel 4wd transmission was shared with no other models, so parts are extremely hard to find. You would be better off getting a full transmission from a pick n pull.

As cool as this would be to have, there's no way I could justify spending more on a grille than I did ON MY ENTIRE CAR.

Re: Asa’s Sunshine Wagon - 1984 Tercel SR5

That 100:1 ratio is because the T4WD comprised less than 1/5th of Subaru's model lineup in the 80's. If the Tercel had been produced as a trucklet, a hatchback, a coupe, a sedan AND a wagon (in both 2WD & 4WD drivetrains, WITH a turbocharged engine option) then maybe you'd have worked on more Terce...

Re: looking to slightly raise a Toyota Matrix

Well, I've lifted my tercel with spacers and air shocks because it is my project car, but I was hoping to do something a bit more professional on my daily driver Matrix. Thats why I was leaning towards the struts from a 4wd, but I think the rear suspension might be different. Theres no saying if the...

Re: looking to slightly raise a Toyota Matrix

I looked at those, they seem a bit... shitty?

Cutting boards on top of the struts seem like a better option than that.

looking to slightly raise a Toyota Matrix

I have a 2005 Toyota Matrix. Great car.

Backing out of the driveway, something drags.

Not good.

I would like to raise the suspension slightly, no more than an inch.

Anyone have experience with this? There was a 4wd model that may have stiffer/longer springs, but I'm not sure.

Thanks!

Gas tank for 4wd dlx wagon

Mine is leaking at the seams. I'm pretty sure there is no way to repair it. Anyone know a method?

I assume that ONLY gas tanks from the 4wd models will fit, but I would love to be wrong.

Any information to help my scrapyard search is appreciated.
