    Buying a complete Rear End

    I'm looking to buy a complete rear to convert my 83 Celica GTS to 4 wheel disk and gain the 7.5 rear diff. If anyone has a rusty parts car kicking around let me know, I'd like to keep my IRS in the process so IRS cars only please.

    If your car is a GTS, it will already have rear disc brakes. You will need a 7.5" pumpkin and the 2 CV shafts, as I believe the ones for the 6.7 are a different inner bolt pattern but I could be wrong. You can check as the 7.5 CV shafts have the same size of 4 bolt pattern on the inner and outer.

    You should really post where you are located. It's a small fortune to ship this large an item.

    I'm in San Antonio TX but I own a truck and am willing to travel. In response to the previous comment, my 83 came with rear drums. The 85's all had 4 wheel disc.

    All RA6X Celica GTS with IRS are rear disc. Please confirm your car is not a GT with a solid rear axle, if it does indeed have only drum brakes on the rear.

    I'm still looking for a complete 7.5 rear diff, housing and all. I did manage to find complete control arms to upgrade my brakes. Located in San Antonio.
