  1. Hey everyone, I have a 2004 Corolla Ascent Wagon ZZE122R 220,000ks, and was looking at it's possible to life the suspension as I do a fair bit of driving out in the sticks where an couple of inches of extra clearance would be appreciated. If not, is it possible to get stiffer rear suspension as under load it tends to get fairly low. Would either of these options be possible? Cheers, Hugh
  2. I finally fixed a frustrating issue with my 2003 Corolla Sportivo. After looking at all the suspension components including the replacing of lower control arm, sway-bar, and S/B link bushings and checking nuts and bolts for tightness and rebuilding the struts I was able to trouble shoot a ongoing noise issue I could not resolve. When going over cement or choppy road surfaces there would be a noise from the right front of the car. Something loose, for a while I convinced myself it was the tyres making the sound. The car had no steering vibration or brake vibration. On asphalt no noise! One day going over the same cement road I needed to apply brakes and the noise DISAPPEARED! I did some more testing by left foot braking while using the accelerator, indeed the noise stopped and returned after lifting off the brakes, so I narrowed it down to the braking system. One YouTube video showed how the disc can make a noise when the studs bang against the holes in the rotor hub. But that could not be the cause. Rattles can come from brake pads, so I cleaned and re-greased the backs of the pads in case it was that. I also shook the whole assembly when it was all back together. Nothing a first but then suddenly I heard the EXACT SAME NOISE that had been plaguing me for months. Turns out the 17mm bolts that hold the brake caliper assembly to the bracket had worked themselves loose. (Just enough not dangerous) I lock tighted them back in place and no more noise, hard to diagnose for a non mechanic so it may be useful information for other DIYers, could save you hours of frustration. I think giving stuff on your car a good shake is a great old school way to pick up issues early Hope this helps othersūüĎĆ
  3. Hi there, I just bought a lux from a dealership 2nd hand and it has a lift or body kit. Does anyone know how to measure or find out the body lift as the dealership didnt have that information ??? Thanks, Harrison
  4. The before and after shots. It's on SportsRyder springs.
  5. Hi there. I have a 2016 Toyota Kluger (or Highlander as they are here in NZ). Im wanting to find a solution to reduce wallowing and improve handling. Has anyone managed to achieve this on the current model Kluger (Highlander)?
  6. Hi everyone,When driving over speed bumps at slow speed the front suspension makes a loud squeaking, almost creaking noise. The sound is similar to opening the creaky door of your garden shed! It doesn't affect the handling/function of the car but is very annoying/embarrassing.Hoping it may solve the problem, I have replaced both front struts - they were 100% worn out so time and money not wasted, however this has made no difference to the creaking noise. Both springs and lower/upper rubber insulators were in good condition with no corrosion/deterioration so these can all be ruled out as the cause of the creaking.The video below shows you the noise when driving over speed bumps at slow speed. (**You will need to turn up your volume to hear it the creaking noise - it's actually much louder in reality, the sound hasn't come out very well on the video.**) Any ideas what could be causing this?I have inspected the sway bar bushings, although not disassembled them yet. They seem in good condition and look like they have been replaced in the last couple of years. Would it pay to take these apart and stick some rubber grease on them? Or are they supposed to work dry?Any other suggestions?!The car is a Toyota Corolla 1999, Conquest, 1.8l Petrol, AE112, 189,000kms on the clock (118,000 miles).Thanks for your help!! Joe
  7. I recently found a set of BC Racing coilovers for my 95 VCV10 Vienta, and long story short my car was driven up a considerably steep curb (rear right wheel). Now about a week after this incident, my rear right wheel almost constantly scrubs when cornering, and appears to be sitting a solid 3/4 of an inch lower than the other 3 wheels. I'm wondering if maybe the coilover could have blown? Or maybe bent. I had to raise the rear right to make the car driveable again, but any information I could get would be amazing thank you.
  8. Hey guys and girls, just in the last week my sway bar end link on the drivers/right side has started to hit the bump stop kinda thing, i have not been in an accident or hit any gutters, i am running bc racing coilovers, just want to know if anyones had the same problem or might know what's suddenly causing this annoying problem. Thanks David

  15. Hi all. I just bought myself a 1993 4 door Hilux 4WD. I absolutely love it but it's a dog awful ride. It's got a 2" suspension lift. I feel every bump on every road and bounce along like a yo yo. It also has no body roll and funny enough corners better than our Prado. Is this normal? Can anything be done to soften the ride? New shokies perhaps? Also my font seat is too low. I know this is normal but I feel like a little kid peering over my steering wheel. Anyone know of another seat that's higher AND more comfortable that will bolt in? I'd love to hear from you. Phil ^_^

  20. Hi all, I recently replaced my tyres and found from Tyrepower and Pedders that my shocks are soft and lacking control and that my Radius Rod bushes are worn and cracked. I am required to replace my shock absorbers in my car and have been researching on what brands to get. I have not been able to find any particular model numbers on the forums regarding this. If anyone has replaced there shocks for a 2003 model with KYB's Monroe's etc can you please provide me with the model numbers so I can confirm I am looking for the right parts. I have the following already if anyone can confirm. KYB Front Left 334377 Front Right 334376 and Rears 341338 Monroe Fronts E7008+ Rears E1312 Gabriel Front Left G56661 Front Right G56660 Rears G51736 For the Radius Bush I need to replace, I can't find anywhere that sells this online. Would I have to buy it in a kit with new bushes for the whole front end or can I get this separate? Any help regarding the above would be much appreciated.
  21. Just a question, dunno if anyone has done this before, but would Camry springs fit into an Aurion? Reason being I've found a set of Pedders Low's for a Camry, just not sure whether theres any difference in the struts between the Aurions and Camrys. Has anyone tried this?
  22. Okay, so I've been driving my newly acquired '96 Vienta Csi and I'm ready to take it to the next level. My main gripe with the car is that the ride is too soft for my liking. It's comfortable going over potholes and bumpy roads, but when I do quick turns and cornering, it feel like an oil tanker. After forum hopping for a while, it seems that a front strut beam and rear sway bar would make a difference at a lower price point. After doing a little digging and visiting autobarn down in chaddy this afternoon, i realised that Whiteline does not make a front strut beam for the '96 Vienta because there is no clearance above the engine; a real bummer. So i'm posting this hoping get a few more ideas re how i can improve my suspension without blowing a big hole in my pocket. A friend of mine recommended changing the stock suspension to coilovers and that should reduce the need for FSB and RSB. I don't have a lot of money to spare so if anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share them. (if you could provide an estimated cost as well, that will be awesome) thanks! :D
  23. Hello all! I'm new to tocau but have slowly been browsing and using faq and pinned topics at leisure :P But I'll get to the point. I'm looking to lower my rolla soon and i'm in need for some feedback on places to go to get it done. I personally can't do it myself, purely cause of the lack of tools and knowledge :( oh and also time! I'm based in Melbourne and would prefer places around western, northern and cbd. Atm by baby is stock, except for some 17x7 Rays SS7 from fellow tocau member and mate, Jeffery! :D I was told south melbourne pedders and north melbourne tyre power but would like to hear from other tocau members! I'd appreciate every and all feedback and recommendations for places to get it done. Thanks in advanced! Hauy.
  24. I'm looking to replace the shocks and springs in my 2008 Kluger Grande, however I'm strugglingto find an after market supplier who has listed replacements. So far I've checked Monroe, Pedders, Bilstein and Koni with no success! Does anyone know a strut/shock manafacturer that provides replacement compenents? I would have thought that having had the newer model on the market for the last 4yrs or so this wouldn't have been such a problem, but it appears I'm mistaken. Cheers
