    Help me not sell this POS,suspension help needed

    I already have good tires,fuck aero...maybe I’ll take ur advice on suspension. Still waiting on Wes to send in the bushings so I can see if it makes any difference. I have Largus front and rear

    Gordo, I found an awesome Lincoln 110 multi-pak setup for half price, brand new. It had everything for mig, tig and stick. Pedals, wire, rods, cups, etc. The guy sold it half an hour before I could get to it. Normally 1200 bucks and the guy was selling it for 600, but I missed out. That's the plan though, I'll eventually get that setup after I get the cressida completed and driving, but before I do the bored out gt28 build or go big single
  8. Ha, Wes is doing my Cressida oil pan mod :-) Or he is have that idiot at Beach Performance doing them, which means he does not have the most important trap door 😞 Those wings hold aprox. 1 qt. each, and come from Speedway Motors, about $20 each.
  9. Get rid of the junk 3rd world coil-overs. Take the largus rear bar for something a little smaller, or go larger on the front. Learn to tune spring rates, as you probably have drift springs on it. Aero, Aero, Aero.... Find the 'how to tune your suspension' thing I posted up here, and........ For god's sake, buy better tires.

    Learn to stick weld sheet metal.....1/16" 6013 rod. Used to build custom bike pipes using 20ga sheet metal, until I got old, and eyes went south, and hands started shaking (and I bought a TiG)
  11. Don't blame me for that cross brace.... Just something I had seen in Japan years ago. You have the rear plates, but do you have the front plates ? That was my idea.... Wish I had that truck, instead of the mother fucking honda CR-V I now have. Absolutely the opposite of my good handling, fast, fun to drive Datsun 620 that a fucking cunt driver totaled....

    Well I was able to get a hold of Wes, he runs a diesel shop now,has a few MK3 pieces that he still sells,ordered replacement ends,let’s see how if there’s improvement. Have a track day that I just registered for at Thunderhill for June 7th,hopefully it’s in before that,installed and aligned. https://punchoutperformance.com/product/34-poly-rod-end/ Well apart from that, what else can I do to make a 4 door gokart?

    You can always measure you heims and find/order them online. I replaced the heims in my font XM arms with much beefier/higher quality ones.

    Sell! sell! Sell!
  15. why not just get the XM arms with poly bushings? $565 seems a lot cheaper than getting and prepping a new car https://xcessivemanufacturing.com/toyota/cressida/mx83/chassis-and-suspension/toyota-mx83-t-mx83-raa-664.html
  16. yea i am a hoarder and actually have 3 rear subframes total. got 2 brace plates for these guys the other day. also gonna weld in a bar that runs along the top of the diff bushings kinda like gordos. guess i am paranoid that ill crack one and wont be able to find another so i hoard. more pics of the truck i guess

    WHO HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE MY USERNAME TO VAGINA

    I dig the little truck. I would like to have a van like that to beat around town in. Don't need the 4x4 though. But everyone who imports one always imports 4x4 here. Buying a whole extra rear subframe seems like such a good idea. I need to buy a new rear end for my wagon, build it up and then slap that shit in. I've been putting it off and lazy. But the motor is almost done.
  18. So I’m on the fence about selling my Cressida...only coz it handles like shit. What I currently have is Largus front and back, Megans, BeechPerformance arms with shot heims,front 3 point strut brace. 245/40/18 fronts,295/35/18 rears.I think my shot heims are part of the problem, but I can’t get replacement ones since it’s Wes left the scene a decade or so ago, they are definitely bigger then XM ones. I need to make it handle like a stock BMW M3(E46) or C32/55 AMG(W203) at the very least. I’m doing HPDE with mine’s and wanna keep up with the rest,I have the power,just need the handles If I can’t achive that,shit’s getting sold and I’m jumping ships to E46 scene

    Why is it that whenever my welding gas runs out, it always happens on a long weekend right before I'm going to spend the entire weekend finishing up welding a bunch of stuff? Central welding and Airgas are closed until Tuesday of course. Did a bunch of air hammering inside the arch and gained a lot more travel. Completed the driver's side arch. Blended it with bondo Also cut a few millimeters off each end of the toe rods. Now it sits nice and straight. When the car is on the ground, it has around 2 degrees of negative camber Since my metal working plans for the weekend are shot, I'm going to get as much of the car ready for paint as possible. I get to deal with removing all the windshield trim and breaking all the little plastic Y-clip retainer things

    Same Jason. My X8 didn't seem to like having metal fenders so I gave it what it wanted. Biggest regret of that car was not keeping the stock body though. Now I've got multiple sets of wheels/tires with fitments that I cant use on anything else Actually biggest regret is buying the car in the first place.

    Eh, can't fault you there. My condolences if you live in the rust belt. If you ever find spare rust free fenders, it's never too late to change. Talked to Guy at excessive and he says they will cut 5mm off both ends of the toe rod for free to correct the camber issue and that will fix it. There are enough threads to work with, so it is safe. I'm too much of a cheap ass to pay shipping, plus I don't want to wait. I'll likely use my friend's chop saw with a metal blade to fix them, cause that shit's free

    TFTI My arches were more rust than metal. Miataboi gang it is.

    Bought my 275/35/18 tires for the rear... and damn, they look good. They hit the fender pretty bad, so invasive surgery was needed. Got scared to make the first cuts, but once I started chopping, there was no turning back. The actual welding, grinding and pulling wasn't the hard part. The difficult part was making the edge of the lip look straight and even. It took a lot of welding, grinding, rinse and repeat treatment to finally get everything looking pretty even up close. I got everything flowing smoothly and filled low spots with weld to get it ready for a really light skimming of bondo We're officially tucking 18's gentlemen. The one thing I forgot about was that the toe rod is too damn long. Xcessive acknowledged this and they now sell their rear arm kits with a shorter toe rod so you can dial out the dumb amount of negative camber. I'm thinking of slicing barely a centimeter off of the end of each toe rod barrel to allow the wheels to be straighter as long as I have enough thread engagement. With how it currently sits, the car is square and the lower arms can be retracted about 3/4 inch to get rid of the negative camber, but then the toe in/out is off. If I had three degrees of negative camber or less, I would be happy. There's maybe 6 to 8 degrees as it currently sits?? Either way, I'm happy as a pig in shit knowing that I have beefy tires in the rear and it doesn't look like a miata with riveted on plastic flares. Proud to say that my fenders are all metal. The wheel arches didn't even raise up that much, maybe a centimeter at most. I'm a widebody boi now
  25. Always though a 750cc water cooled snowmobile engine would have been a nice upgrade on one of those trucks.
  26. the suzuki truck was sick. it was perfect for in town driving, but anything over 60 mph was super scary. i sold it to buy the house recently. parts are super easy to find. found an old receipt under the back rest that was all in Japanese that dated to 1994, thought it was pretty cool it in the snow. put a x7 rack in the other day with new xm bushings. i guess they are green now. current set up is x7 rack, stock lca, zero ackerman knuckles, xm caster rods and bushings, xm long outer tie rods, and xm nrcas. still not sure about those nrca. wheel hits frame not but only tested with factory wheel with a 15mm spacer. dont have anything cooler at the moment. good bit of lock increase though. ignore the rolling on the baby blue fenders, the fender rolling is trash. dark blue ones are going back on
  27. Hey vagina, I want the truck !
  28. i have 2 pairs of rear upper control arms and both of the ball joints were trash. saw somewhere on here years ago that a 4 runner front ball joint works. part numer k90255. but i didnt weld it to the arm. ball joint is almost identical.
