So this forum is dead. Heres a lame update.

As most of you know, I don't have a working fuel gauge, hence why I ran out of gas on the highway and missed almost our whole BBQ/meet in the spring.

anyways, Kevin came to my rescue then, and he came to my rescue again and sent me this cool auto meter fuel sender thing.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 ADCA672C-FD3D-4518-B171-21369DE1A298_zps9ust31os

It basically involves taking a depth measurement in your tank and then adjusting the depth of the sender and cutting your float arm to a certain length.

Started doing that.

New vs Old.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 92BBAF96-2BFE-4839-A35A-C69490CA3E09_zps9gckzxe2

Surprisingly the non-symmetrical 5 bolt pattern on the auto meter unit matched the toyota pattern nearly perfect. The bolt spacing was dead on, but the toyota pattern had a tad bit larger bcd. I took the sender unit apart and used a small file to egg the holes out about 2-3mm on the mounting flange. Worked out well.

Then put it back together and installed. One of my allen bolts stripped taking the stock one out and had to be drilled, so that's why I'm missing a bolt.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 F507F38D-3297-4B56-931D-B332F0EF22FE_zpswod3eve7

My car is on jack stands, so I haven't had a chance to go to a gas station and calibrate the STACK, but I'm psyched to have a working gas gauge for once.

kind of a boring update, but its exciting for me.

I found a buyer for my broken rear end and with the help of the chicago PR corolla dudes I was able to pick up the holy grail of rear end upgrades; a complete 1979 supra 7.5" rear axle. These things are virtually impossible to find, since mk1 supras basically don't exist. I also didnt pay a dime for it, and got a free hood out of the deal. I'm mega psyched about it.

It was pretty rusty when I grabbed it and it still had all of the 4 links on it. Of course all the bolts were seized.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 8F9B3530-3057-4894-A1EF-8F66D4ED5B94_zpsajw12c7u

got it back to sattys and started pulling it apart to assess the condition.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 E8454E86-2EBB-42C6-91DD-F33348D78069_zps50bt62oj

These axles are beefy as fuck. supposed to be good for like 400hp!

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 74DD2F53-41F4-4E95-B36C-903CD814AAB2_zpshxldhiqz

To our surprise, we found that the entire rear end was freshly rebuilt, all new axle, carrier and pinion bearings, and best of all? It has fresh and new 4.3 gears, which is going to save me a bunch of money.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 7777E7EF-7A88-42A4-A069-8D64122C89E3_zpsydsiflyl

the calipers, though rusty look to be fairly new or freshly rebuilt. I was able to get the brake lines and bleeder screws out without too much of a fuss. Calipers without slide pins are strange.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 9F04F676-0F21-42EE-85FD-20CD39169024_zpsxafyygpd

Got lucky and my dual drilled pinion snout from my old diff swapped right on, so no re-drilling will be necessary for my DSS driveshaft.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 B99E6514-C016-47B2-835E-5C5558251321_zpshnveapmo

installed extended studs right away since it was missing a couple.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 AB425330-B8F4-40B1-BC9B-77ED4C713979_zpszuudlqcs

then put everything back together, removed the backing plates and brake hard lines and started going to town with a flapper wheel on my angle grinder to get all the rust off. Its starting to look pretty good. We have to do a few modifications to the housing, and then i'll paint it something fancy.

Living that 86 life... - Page 2 9958518C-02F3-423A-9AA2-9298D581B4FC_zpsowzowptz

It's basically a bolt in swap, I just need to make my Battle Version pan hard rod a little longer. We're also going to make some weld-on traction brackets for the lower links and it should be good to go. Other than that I'm going to buy new pads, rotors, stainless lines, a solid pinion spacer and new pinion and axle seals.

yea, I got REALLY lucky finding this. Its also good that people pay out the ass for GTS parts, because I was able to find someone to pay $450 for my broken GTS rear end within 2 days of breaking it. Picked up this one for $400.

Yea he's insane. I'm going to paint the housing gloss black with por15, but first we have to do some welding and shit on it like swapping the spring pads and making traction brackets. I want it to look brand new before I bother putting it in the car.

Got my knuckles today from Paz in the UK. These should be fun. Going to take the spare LCA you seen in the pics and extend/box them in and pick up some different tension rods too, probably Tein. Should pair well and give me good angle without any clearance issues, reduced ackerman and much better turn in response.

A fb post about how long people have owned their 86's made me realize that I've had this car over 5 years now. That's over TWICE as long as I had my S13. In my head it always feels like I had my 240 forever and that this corolla is my "new car" I guess that's not the case. Anyways, that inspired me to do one of these.

blah. So I got rid of my shitty adjustable LCA and decided to modify a spare set of stock ones I had laying around. First had them sandblasted and the bushings and ball joints pressed out. I handed them off to satty last week to extend 30mm, gusset and press in new Whiteline bushings and Moog ball joints.

He sent me these pics last night. I think they came out amazing.

Almost look like factory. Today they should be powdercoated and have the new parts installed. Now I just need new tension rods and my front will be complete again.
