    No, the ST185 does not share anything from the rear suspension with any of the FWD Celicas.

    It is possible to build your own LCAs and adjustable suspension you are looking for from the proper parts.. There is also a company that makes the parts, or was looking at making the parts, there is a thread about it in the 5th Gen forums.

    hey guys back at the build! ive ordered the rear sway bar, rear control arms and trailing arms and a bunch of other crap! you guys have been good to me so far so heres my next challenge! I cant seem to find a front sway bar for this thing anywhere! anny suggestions would be appreciated. I did come across this website http://www.importpartspro.com/50210.html but im not sure if it will fit my st184, also does anyone know if the st185 front sway bar fits the st184?

    The general consensus is that a rear swaybar upgrade is good, and front sway bar upgrades are bad for our cars (front sway bars are generally bad for fwd cars).

    I removed my front sway bar.

    Stay with the stock front sway bar, upgrade the rear. Upgrading the front just keeps the car understeering.
