Gathering a massive amount of parts for a complete overhaul. Attempting to make the car less sloppy.

Full Rebuild on my MK3 clutch-pack LSD. All new OEM seals and Koyo bearings. Weir Stage 2 MAXGRIP Kit. Weir solid pinion spacer. The MK3 diff came with a 3.73, but I decided to put the 3.9 from the Cressida into the diff. I believe the 3.9 has good acceleration and still able to cruise at 75 mph under 3k rpms.


I had Ken Francisco from GearInstalls put this diff together. The man is a magician and a stand up guy. He is referred to as the Toyota Gear Specialist, commonly working on Toyota crawler differentials.

Installed all the XM Poly bushings for the diff, RUCAs, subframe, and rear hub/knuckle. Taking out the factory bushings was a pain in the dick.


Also rolled the fenders for the new wheel/tire combo.

The original weather strips were in terrible shape and falling apart. They were originally gray with a lot of dirt.

A buddy of mine was parting out a Cressida with blue interior that had weatherstrips in great condition. I used black fabric paint to make them look good against the gray interior. I am pleased with the end product.

A fog light switch kit I bought from 'Boristhecat', another member here on this forum. Quality kit for sure and looks factory while controlling the fogs as if they were there from day one.

I drove down to Mexico to meet Jose, owner of Joe's Aero, to pick up the kit I will be installing. I was able to fit two bumpers and two side skirts in my girlfriend's Toyota Corolla.

I had the car on the lift to put grease in the adjustable XM rear arms, so I grabbed some shots of the underside.

A buddy brought me back a tsurikawa (subway hang ring) that he bought at Upgarage when he went to Japan.

Wanted to make sure my thread was easy to follow. These are Cressida owners, not scientists. Fuckers can't even use the search function, and you think they'll be able to follow one entire post. top kek.

Got to admit, here is a member that does shit rather than just talk about doing shit. Hmmm, that's better than 90% of other newbies and more than 1/2 of the OG members.

Keep up the good work kid, oh and I hope you don't have some super sick sponsorship.....
