    I wouldnt say so. I think they probably used a mkiii rear end that had other coilovers put in and someone removed the washers. Luckily i have no rush as it is cold.

    Not sanding it down, yet. That sleeve is not going anywhere as it is crimped in place. Maybe in the 87-88 supra it is but this one, 89. Nope. For now, i am waiting but should have an answer in which direction to go. My guess it will be redone as the measurements dont match the tokico and the...

    Ingition on but not starting 7M-GTE
