1979 Toyota Corona Wagon suspension

i traded a few vw's for this car.. it has cut springs and up front , removed two leaf springs from the rear and has a huge lowering block.

I want to raise it back up so its more comfortable to drive.

Anyone know where i can find factory front springs / or aftermarket lowering springs for this car ? i found one place on ebay but they were over seas and wanted $140 just for shipping..

Anyone have any rear leaf springs laying around? i would like to put one more back in to soften up the ride..

thanks in advance.

i have not, i have a vw smaller VW trucks and almost thought about seeing what they looked like - i can buy a complete 77 corona sedan that odd enough also has rear leaf spring suspension...

but not sure i want to buy a complete car to use a few parts - i guess i could part the car out

That thing is sick man. What are your plans for it if you don't mind me asking?

take the front struts out, cut the spring perch off, weld on a colar and use whatever coilover you want. My AE86 has this setup and works awesome/cheap. QA1 has nice parts for good prices. then you can raise/drop whenever you want
