Diff mount bushings done. Gotta get the subframe modified for the camber kit before I install the subframe bushings.

Wrecked my corolla... gotta start with a new chassis. Putting that shit on the back burner and finishing my cressida. Picking up the rear camber kit parts from raptor so I can get my rear subframe finished. Gonna use the stock cressida diff until I can chase down a mk2 supra lsd to rebuild and swap in. Still need to buy the rear lower control arm bushings and convert the rear hubs to 5 lug.

 

Making the finished rear suspension my priority at the moment...

Picked up an mr2 turbo brake booster and master cylinder today. Still had to put a small dent in the side of the booster to clear the valve cover but the master cylinder is a 1" instead of a 15/16". Fits nice so one more thing knocked out...

Evidently I missed the part about the brake booster and the 1uzfe.. How much interference were you having with the oem one?

I think there is even a thinner one out there, from the Spider.

I was looking at it before deciding to remote mount my master.

I could have also used the na 91 mr2 booster for a thinner option but I was trying to stick as close as possible to the original size.

 

I was having somewhere around 1/2" of interference with the stock mx73 booster. The mr2 booster has a step at the front that also aided clearance.

One of the 1uz subharnesses finished. Removed the low oil sensor wiring and replaced all of the broken connectors. Installed and put on new intake manifold gaskets and bolted down the lower intake plenum. Almost finished welding up the driver side camber kit and looking into buying ms123 hubs again for the rear 5 lug conversion. Really want to have one side of the rear suspension finished so I can throw a tire on the 17X10 and see how much pull I'm going to need on the rear fender.

I'm envious :mad:

I didn't splurge for new adjustment bolts on mine.

Will have to sell another body part, to afford more shit.

Let's see, I'm down to one kidney, one lung, so that leaves a spare eyeball, and a spare nut.

Guess I will be wearing an eye patch shortly.......

or have your balls removed and put them in your eye sockets, then have your eyes relocated to your scrote.

Phone calls with Gordon lead to this bullshit. New solid bearing spacer for the stub axle. Not a new idea but I couldn't come up with a reason not to make it
