    finally I've been bugging him about this for about a month or too now. great writeup looks like I got some saving to do after the turbo stuff is done this is next. luckilly I got a friend who wants to do this also so i won't have any trouble selling the second set of coilovers. my head hurts that was long. but good writeup Seamus!- btw the trucker thing is suicide steering not quicksteer but I got a laugh out of it any way!-Larry

    Seamus, a quicksteer is a gear box placed in the steering column that amplifies movement. The one I intend to use will be a 1.5:1 ratio... So 1 turn of the steering wheel will equal 1.5 turns into the steering box.

    Do a search on RCAs on this forum, theres several descriptions of what they do. This thread is already too long winded for that But they are the aluminum spacers between my steering arms and strut cases in my pictures. Jim King does group buys on them every now and then, the only way to get MA or RA65 RCAs that I know of currently.

    Do a search on AGXs too if you like or check out SupraWes's stickied post in this folder. Most people run MR2 AGXs but I wanted drop in and cheap. You can use any kind of shocks you want, just as long as they can keep up to your springs. The only mod you have to do to run the Celica GTS steering arms is use celica strut casings and have the arms drilled out to fit Supra ball joints.

    yeah, the ones i had worked fine. only thing is they didnt tell me the spring rate and it wasnt listed. im guessing ~400lb rate from other cars iver riden in. i just ordered this set here the other day.

    they are the same design i got before, but diff color and mfg. i figure ill go ahead and do coilovers on the front of the blue car as well. ill post back when i receive them and measure the i.d. of the sleeves. btw, the gc knockoffs i had had such a lil clearance that i wouldnt have been able to even put a rubber band on the casing before sliding them on, so yeah, they were pretty much perfect fit.

    Awesome writeup, thanks for taking the time to do all that. Theres some really neat ideas there.

    My explanation of ride quality is like if you asked your girlfriend how the ride was, what would she most likely say.
