Default 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.

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
