2002 Corolla Conquest wagon, Lovells Springs installation

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I put the new KYB shocks (Excel G nothing flash) and Lovells springs (TFL98 and TRL99, lows) into the 2002 Corolla Conquest wagon.

I was checking the car last weekend and found both rear shocks leaking so they needed changing.

Front of car factory spring from front tyre lip to guard was ~105mm with Lovells ~90mm, ~15mm change.

Rear of car factory spring from front tyre lip to guard was ~115mm with Lovells spring ~75mm, ~40mm change.

Looks like the car is dragging its behind along the ground and feels like it when driving.

Lovells Front

Factory Front.

Both front and rear Lovells springs looked quite a bit shorter than factory springs before fitting so I am a bit nonplussed as to why I have only got ~15mm lowering to the front to the car.

Any ideas as to why only ~15mm change at the front would be appreciated.

Last night installed Whiteline rear sway bar, took some doing but it is in and makes a difference to the handling, not so much understeer.

Just finished fitting Lovells super lows to front of the 2002 Corolla Conquest wagon.

Springs uncompressed were longer than the Lovells lows but fitted were 20mm lower!

Super lows were smaller diameter than the Lovells lows but I cannot sense any really big difference in ride.

Car now looks better with ~70-75 mm between top of wheel arch and lip on tyre (where measurements taken) all round.

Much better looking.

Maybe need some photos now I have it looking about right.

Nothing special it looks standard just a bit lower.
