Hey all,

i just picked up a 1992 Celica GTS. It is going to be my DD to keep the mileage/maintenance down on my MR2.

It needs a little work, but nothing bad for the age.

The one thing it needs are rear trailing arm bushings. I don't want to do poly (this is going to be my DD) and I haven't found out for sure if 6th gen suspension pieces (lateral arms/trailing arms) will bolt in with no modification?

It seems like, every time I find a "yes", there is a "no". But, I would imagine, based on what I have seen, it wouldn't be hard to retrofit.

Welcome aboard.

This should help.

Haha, thanks for that. I skimmed over it before, but I missed the part about the strut rod.

I guess it doesn't matter too much, since all it would be really changing is *caster*, which doesn't matter, since there is no steering axis present.
