View Full Version : [TECH] Suspension Components For Your T-series(1986-1999) Celica

Abstract
I am starting this thread to inform and to provide a central location for parts manufacturer listings. This is not the holy grail of suspension FAQs, and I am not completely aware of all the manufacturers of all the parts for all the Celica's so the success depends on everyones help. Keep in mind this is not a thread to post your opinion on which setup is best. This needs to be an unbiased listing for the uninformed to consult.

The T series Celica suspension utilizes a McPherson Strut with a wishbone suspension in the front and a multi-link independant suspension in the rear. More information on these designs can be found here:

http://autozine.kyul.net/technical_school/suspension/tech_suspension2.htm#Mac
and
http://www.users.bigpond.com/jack_stands/automotive_advice/car_suspension/Mcpherson_struts/struts_1.html

http://autozine.kyul.net/technical_school/suspension/tech_suspension21.htm#Multi

The front and rear also have anti-sway bars installed from the factory and a factory front strut tower brace.

For more information on suspension design I suggest picking up “How to Make Your Car Handle” by Fred Puhn. Another good book is Milliken and Milliken, Racecar Vehicle Dynamics

Suspension Terminology

Anti-sway Bar
Anti-sway bars distribute suspension loads from one side of the car to the other. Also known as sway bars, stabilizer bars, or anti-roll bars.

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/question432.htm

It improves tire grip by reducing lateral weight transfer. A downside to bars that are too stiff is that the independent suspension starts to act like a solid axle. The problem there is if one tire is upset by a bump, the other tire will also move.

McPherson Strut
As shown in the link above, a McPherson strut is a shock absorber and coil-over spring packaged as one unit and functions as an integral part of the suspension. The front struts on the Celica have a rebuild-able design where one can swap out the shock cartridge. On the rear the entire strut must be changed though one can modify the rears to be rebuild-able like the front.

Look to change out the shock cartridge or complete strut to gain performance. The shock absorber in the strut resists movement. This means it keeps the tire in contact with the road, minimizes spring oscillation, and reduces body roll. You want to match the shocks you purchase to the springs you intend to install. You also want to purchase a setup to match your driving style. Too stiff and the suspension will not "soak up" the bumps which can result in loss of traction. Too soft and the suspension will not react to those bumps fast enough causing loss of traction

Coil-over Spring
A coil-over spring sits around a shock absorber. In contrast, most rear truck suspensions have the shock absorber and coil spring located at separate locations.

Springs are designed to keep your car from bottoming out. The harder you drive the greater the force of the road is on your tires. You want to match the springs you purchase to the struts you intend to install. If your springs are too stiff for your shocks absorbers, you will have an underdamped(i.e. "bouncy") condition. If your springs are too soft, you will have an overdamped(i.e. sluggish) condition.

Strut Tower Brace
Structural support piece mounted to the strut towers. It reduces chassis flex making handling more predicable.

Suspension Bushings
On all the wearing surfaces of the suspension are rubber bushings. Rubber reduces the transmission of road noise to the chassis, lasts a long time, and is cheap. Aftermarket bushings like the polyurethane ones from Whiteline produce similar results as a strut tower bar; handling becomes more predictable.

Probably should mention that the Superstrut setup is a bit different - and doesn't use the same parts.

I have the bills to prove it. :|

not sure whether the strut or sway bars for the st185 will work with all models or not. i believe that smbius (radcastro.com) had them installed on his car but still not sure if they are the same part #'s as the ones in the links i posted. if anyone can confirm whether these parts fit i would appreciate it. thanks

Anyone have any idea who makes camber plates for our cars?

Adrian Avgerinos

Good quality ones? Nobody. Crappy ones? I think Cusco makes a a set of front plates. You'll have to pay through the nose to get them though.

Ground Control makes a killer camber plate setup. However, they don't offer anything that will bolt on to our cars so you'd have to get creative with the mounting (i.e. drill new holes in your strut towers to mount like many race cars do)

Hi everyone,
A newbie here, just got a sweet 86 GTS yesterday (one owner, all orginal, all records, etc.) and want to do some suspension work. In looking around, there doesn't seen to be much available for gen4, but it sounds like gen5 will swap (or will they?)

My plan is get some Eibach springs and new struts, but the KYB GR2 are too soft for lowered springs (previous experience) and the Koni's are overkill. Will any gen5 struts fit and is there a specific part to get? In the road racing thread there's talk about mixing ST16x and ST18x struts, what's up with that?

Also, I realy want to get some strut braces. The stock front's OK, but I'd like to add one straight across and would really like to put on in the back. This cars got 180k and is pretty creaky. Is Whiteline our only choice? Will the ST165 braces fit or do they use different mounts?

Lots of questions, lots to learn...

Thanks,
Tom

well, firstly, welcome. :)

secondly... i'd personally suggest that the idea of 'konis are overkill' be removed from your skull. :) if you enjoy twisty roads, there is no doubt in my mind, whatsoever, that they are worth the price. yes, its a bit stiff on the wallet, but you will be happy with them. i know this from personal experience. :)

on my 86 NA MR2, i purchased eibach prokit springs & tokico blues (non-adjustable) struts. all new units.

because of my harsh driving, within less than 1 year, the tokico's were blown. they had nothing left to give.

i then purchased my konis. installed them, and its been 1 1/2 years on those suckers, and i've pushed it faster, harder and more frequently... they have yet to show ANY signs of abuse or wearing out.

as far as the eibachs... i've done some research. they spring rates (even on the prokit) are less than desireable for spirited driving. i'd honestly ask some local car guys if there are any shops that custom make springs.

if not, your options arent the greatest. :( but, i'll help you however i can finding a decent set... just give me an idea of what sort of driving you do, and what you'd like to do. :)

here is a link to some information on the rear control arm outter spherical bearings on an alltrac.

http://www.planetcampbell.us/SphericalBearingReplacement.html

They say the part number is 42210-14010

Can anyone confirm this to work on the rear hubs of the FWD ST184 cars?

If this does work, the last bushing I need to source is the rear inner control arm bushings.

Thanks.

Ok, so I'm hitting this back up to try to get a definate answer on these rear spherical bushings!

There is a lot of people saying that the rear poly bushings (which are a no-no) are swap'able between the ST185 rear suspension and ST184 rear suspension setups.

Can anyone confirm this?

Below is an image of the poly bushings people should stay away from on the left, on the right is the spherical bearing that should be used.
http://www.celicatech.com/gallery/files/1/6/proceedurereardiffassemblypart1009.jpg

Now.. even though we should not use the poly bushing, many say that even though this bushing is made for the ST185, its usable on the ST184 rear control arms.

This leads me to believe that diameter and length dimensions are identical so the use in both is very possible.

Funny thing though is that these are for the MA70 MKIII Supra, Part #42210-14010

What leads me further to believe that these parts are interchangable is that if you use www.1sttoyotaparts.com and look up the part number you will see these bushings are used not only in the MA70 Supra, but also the AWD Alltrac Camry.


If anyone can confirm that indeed the poly bushings are interchangable then it is a given that these will work. I currently have an email into Fensport asking if they're ST185 poly bushings will fit the ST184 by chance. If they confirm that yes you can, then we know these spherical bearing replacements will be interchangable as well and the replacement we have all been looking for.

All thanks to the MA70 Supra bearings available from Toyota that people are using on the Alltrac's.

Anyone?

Hey guys,

Alright this is the first time posting on here. My Girl just got an 1986 Celica gt. Not sure if it is a gts or what. Don't know much about these cars. I personnaly drive an 86 300zxt. So fwd is a little weird for me. The car has some decent power but the suspension sucks on it. It bottoms out big time everwhere. The shocks and struts are shot. I was looking around for some new ones. I am having a hard time finding anything for it, for as little as I possibly can. She doesn't have a lot of money to dump into it right off.

hi everyone!!!! new member here lookin for struts and bushings for my girl's 90 celica gts. i see that no one has yet to try the spherical bushings yet. sooooo today when she comes home from work im gonna take off the bushing and measure the inside diameter of the control arm and the length of it as well (with a digital caliper). if it seems close i will probably get a set of those bushings and install them in the car. so finally everyone will have an answer.

Well.. it has been confirmed that those spherical bushings do not fit, they are a tad to small. Looks like buying new rear control arms is still the only option.

I'm hoping to hear on the actual control arm diameters and measurements so that maybe we could even find some aftermarket spherical bearings that will work.

Got the measurement today for you guys. for the inside diameter of the contorl arm on the hub side is 1.470" this is the best i could get after i scraped the rust off and whatnot. what im wondering is if i make a .050 spacer to fit inside the control arm do you guys think i could weld it to the arm then use the spherical bushing?

Here is all the spec info you could want on the bearings. Sorry about the pics, I'm no photographer or artist, but it'll do. According to my measurements and the pic Clayton posted above, the only major difference in the bearings is the overall length which is not important, and the body length which is workable. Outside diameter is what I concerned about. Where did this drawing come from and why is it not metric? An o.d. of 1.42" is = to 36.068 which does not sound right to me. I would like to get one of those bearings Clayton. I think it will work. anyway, here you go, all measurements are in mm.

Unfortunately I have confirmed that these bearings/bushings will not work. They lack approx. .75mm-.80mm in diameter. This is also true for the poly bushings for the st185 as shown below.
http://www.celicatech.com/gallery/files/5/3/3/2/st185bushings.jpg

What I would like to know is, I saw a member who posted in a similar thread in the last year or two who replaced his with poly bushings and i would like to know what ones he used. I have yet to find any the right size. The pictures the member posted showed them installed and the bushings were purple. I can't find the thread anywhere but if one of you knows what I'm talking about and can find it, we would appreciate it.

i am going to start looking at modifying the arms to accept the smaller bearings/bushings. I'll keep it updated here.

Trance4c
03-26-2007, 10:37 PM
:bump:

Its the same bearing in all four spots, so its the same part number for all four.

Looks like unfortunately our only bet is the new arms with the bearings already in them from Toyota unless we can find some aftermarket bearing that work.

Great thread, I do remember that one! I see though that you didn't replace the rear control arm bushings either, look only like the trailing arm. What are you planning to do for that in the future if you are? Obviously this is our only missing replacable piece unless you buy the whole control arm.

I would suggest staying away from the poly bushings though, they will have a lot more give than a spherical bearing.

it doesn't matter how hard, they will still have more play than a spherical bearing. Poly isn't bad if you don't mind squeaks, they're usually a step up from factory. Bearings are more expensive, but hardly ever need replacing and totally eliminate flex in the wrong directions.

Actually the arguement has been that the poly won't flex enough in the directions that the bearings go(although moving in some directions not orginally intended). When the bearing is moved there is very little if any resistance, whereas the poly is made to resist being moved. Squeaking shouldn't be a problem if properly lubricated. In the end, I feel the pros and cons will balance out. I am also using some discounted machinable urethane stock so this will be a cheap test. I'll keep it posted.

Exactly.. the poly flexes laterally which we don't want, which the sphercial bearing flexes axially.

I bought My Celica about 4 months ago from a friend of mine and starting to regret it a little but all in all still only spent 1300 bucks from sale to present day, I've discovered another problem just recently that my rear control arm bushings are cooked and been searching everywhere for replacements. The only option I have at the moment are getting new control arms but at 200 bucks a pop.. I don't think so!!

It seems to be a big problem among celica owners for this bushing. Aside form the fact that I believe the role these bushings play in the suspension happen to be the most punishing one and yet no one makes replacements. ATM I'm contemplating on making my own bushings but I prefer to buy some instead.

Trance4c
05-01-2007, 11:33 PM
Goldy, yes.. it seems the only solution is new arms with bushings already in them.



GOOD NEWS! My new control arms came through the Toyota Motorsports Program (http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22972)!!! I suggest we all start to use this so that it may help us all out in getting the parts we need, especially these specific rear arms that are necessary for any non-ST185 Celica.

Just today my dad just ripped apart the bushings (or sphearical bearings as ya'll call it) that I got from the scrapyard. It seems that a cheap way to replace them is to find a scrapped celica and cut the end of the controll arm off (or take the whole thing) and push the whole bearing out and press the the other one in. He said it was fairly easy to push them out. I have one good one out of the 2 I got and be searching for another one sometime this week.

I did feel that the supplied off the supplied shelf springs (225 lbs inch) were too soft for my 1370kg application as they collapsed and became coilbound after 6 months. (my bad should have specified stiffer at time of ordering :( )

I replaced the DMS double progressive springs with aftermarket 450lb inch fronts and 350 lb inch rears:
