New member from Washington with a '75

Post by SnoCoCelica » July 30th, 2013, 10:00 pm

I just picked up a rough coupe, it has some body damage, not much of an interior, and is sitting on cut springs. This is my first Toyota, but I have a little experiance with other makes. I will post a picture tomorrow, my first goal will be to work on the suspension, I want to get back to stock height because I plan on running some rally cross. I am looking for some stock springs and noticed Rock Auto lists them for the '76 but not the '75 (front anyway), is there a difference?

Welcome from North of the Border to a fellow 75'er.

Not sure if they still can get them, because it says "Call for Price and Availability" but a couple of years back O'Reilly Auto Parts had stock fitment "Moog" springs.

I ended up ordering through the magic of the Internet, and got King Spring Performance Lowered Springs directly from the Land of Oz down under.

GL on your new project.
