    Welcome! It's really good to have another MK 1 expert on this forum.
    What are you using for a differential in the '79? What steering changes have you made,please.
    Thanks.

    Welcome Ted. We definitely need more mk1 owner participation. I would dearly love to be able to take my mk2 to a local car show and have a mk1, mk3 and mk4 also show up on a regular basis. Right now its a sea of Chevelles, Camaros, Mustangs and Tri-Fives. You've seen one first gen Camaro and you've seen a thousand. But those owners all got one foot in the nursing home so our day is coming....

    Hey ddd228 I am using the stock rear end for my 79, it’s a welded diff from my totaled 81 supra, 373 gears I do believe , I have done an extensive amount to the steering lol, start off I ditched the old idler arm set up, I had a shop make me a custom tubbed subframe( the stock one for an a 60 supra is very different mounting wise doesn’t bolt in), I bought a linkage kit from a local shop, literally one of the best modifications I have ever done, but I got rid of every bushing replaced every single one with heim joints, techno toy tuning gtx2 control arms, zero Ackerman steering knuckles+quick steer setting, one turn to full lock!, offset steering rack spacers made the geometry feel very good, but other than that Coilovers from a Toyota Cressida Weld ons for an x7, power steering has yet to be addressed
