Re: 1983 Tercel 4WD SR5 Wagon | Overland Build

Topic #1: Remanufactured axles for ancient, obsolete foreign cars are not to be trusted. In the Subaru community, the general consensus is that OEM axles are superior and that every effort should be made to quickly I.D. a torn boot, replace the boot and re-grease the original CV/DOJ. We have had no ...

Re: panhard bar bushing

There is a freeway onramp near my house that enters the freeway in a particularly well-worn section of pavement. I'm often carpooling to go skiing, so we make a quick jog from the RH lane three lanes over into the carpool lane. If you merge over quickly enough the entire Tercel will start rocking si...

Re: panhard bar bushing

You can use sealed heim joints on a street car. Both the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the Subaru STI have used sealed bearings in major suspension componenets, to great effect. I agree that a heim in the Panhard rod is probably a waste of time and effort. Even after new struts and several new bus...

Mirrors my experience. I did the lower bushing myself and had a local mom 'n' pop garage press in the upper bushing.

whiteline also makes it.

After my experience with Whiteline products and how they've let their quality slip, there is a reason I didn't mention that brand.

Re: 1983 Tercel Wagon 4WD SR5 | Overland Build

How is your beam pattern from the Hella's with led? Everything I've heard is that they don't do as well as the full 360 you get from halogen. I put Hella 80/100 watt bulbs(cheap) in mine and am very happy. Aftermarket LED bulbs installed in a halogen reflector will never have the quality of beam pa...

Re: '86 T4WD SR5 wagon added to wrecking yard in Rancho Cordova, CA on 8/11/2020

I’ll be adding to the carnage today! So much plastic on mine has but the dust so I’m hoping this one has what I need. It’s the same exterior color but a different year, so hopefully the interior matches! Would you be willing to grab the windshield wiper switch for me, please, along with any control...

Re: 1987 in Pick n Pull, Arlinton wa

I think someone did grab the transmission, but the car was not as nice in person as it was in the photo. 320k+ miles, moldy interior, and both headlamps were either chipped, or obviously leaking. I did snag a few doo-dads off it, but really, it was quite rough.
