    Looks good Diego! I need you to weld mine up if I keep her that is.
    87 Supra Turbo: Looking to do a stock rebuild with enough mods to reach 400rwhp then I'll be content.

    Boost lag: The false hope that you give the other car where they think they might win.

    Not too much new here, as I've been out of town.
    Currently at a bed & breakfast in Nantucket- it's a nice change.
    I did just order the Megan street coilovers, so hopefully, they'll get to my house in a few days, and I can post a few installed pics.

    Well, Got just a little bit done today, more tomorrow, hopefully.
    With some helpful advice from Toyotanos, I finally managed to break loose both of my rear CV axles:



    Ordered some new ones, as well as new wheel studs for the rear.
    Also, I managed to pop out one of the rear spherical bushings from the hub. In case you're curious- this is what they look like inside:
    Old and new:


    New one installed:



    Tomorrow, I will clean both rear hubs, degrease both rear brake cables, and install the last few Energy suspension bushings,
    and the other side's new spherical bushing. Both the new axles and the Megan coilovers should arrive Monday. then it's reassembly time.

    Today:
    Pulled out the last two hub bushings(the lower rubber and lower spherical) from the passenger hub, and cleaned up the hubs/ painted them.
    Under all that dirt it was practically bare metal, so I just threw little black paint on them too keep em from rusting.
    If you notice in this pic, you'll see that both hubs had paint numbers on them, indicating to me that both rear hubs were replaced at one point.
    I've had this car since '96, so the previous owner(a woman) must have fu@%ed up the rear end somehow...


    After paint:



    I would have done more work, but the temp was dropping like crazy here, so I packed it in.
    Picked up all new rear studs today, as well as ordered two new balljoint dust boots for my upper control arms.
    Found out that they're available seperately from the arms, and my arms are both in good shape, except for the boots.
    Part number 43324-14010, in case anybody needs some.
    So now, I'm waiting on:
    Two new axles
    Megan coilovers
    balljoint boots
    Warmer temps.
    I expect that I'll be done with the rear suspension by Wednesday or Thursday, barring any out-of-town trips.
    Then it's on to the front suspension.

    After install of parking brakes, cables and new studs:



    I sure hope the axles come tomorrow, because I'm running out of things to do back there.
    Regardless, I guess i'll be reinstalling the differential, hubs and all arms to the subframe, so it should at least *look* like there's progress...
    The only other cosmetic thing I want to do, is powdercoat the calipers.

    AArgh!
    I started assembling the rear subframe today, by installing the arms, diff, and hubs.
    Problem is- I soon relized that the halfshafts were going to hit the new upper subframe braces!
    SO, I had to cut them back out. Now I'll have to weld in some new ones, slightly outboard from the original positions.

    On a brighter note, I picked up my new upper control arm ball joint boots from Toyota and installed them:


    Also, I asked the parts guy about ordering a new boot for the balljoints on the rear toe arms, but he told me that Toyota doesn't sell them seperately.
    He DID, however suggest that I go over to Honda, and see what they had, since they did have boots to sell seperately.
    Here's what I came up with:

    Not the right shape, right?
    Here it is installed:




    That's more like it!

    Then, I decided to install the new Megans on the rear:


    That's all for now. Still waiting on the new halfshafts, but I almost have the subframe completed.
