    Default Corolla SE Saloon 1.6 braking issue

    hello guys.

    as most of you would know that corolla likes to hug cars from the back.
    I have been on it for quite some time and 'noticed' that the rear suspension is too 'soft' that it just jumps upon braking. The shocks are very good and working fine. As far as I'm concerned, springs are the culprit, I was thinking if we could change the rear springs to something good? not going buy genuine spec toyota springs, but some after market option, since I don't know much about the available options, I would like you guys to comment on what ever is available and how good.. please also mention price ideas.

    lowering springs?
    Coilovers?
    adjustable coilovers?

    what can be applied in my application and what would be most economical. I need springs that are rigid than the original ones. I would be using the stock shock absorbers since they ARE VERY VERY good.

    Sir why do not you upgrade your brake discs, pads and calipers instead of springs and suspensions.

    because even after replacing all the four corners, it would still be the same since its not the problem with the discs / rotors or pads. Its problem with the braking proportion and soft suspension.

    @sync,
    confirmed from another friend who got the brakes fixed
    they change the brake distribution T with a kabli one of japanese corolla. like corolla X.

    technically it means brake fluid going to the rear discs of ur stock car is insufficient for proper braking!
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    That is a malfunction of the proportioning valve.

    Yes but that would happen only when it malfunctions over time.

    Not every new corolla would have a malfunctioning proportioning valve, would it?

    This is just outright idiotness and not-being-sincere to the people by Toyota PK.
