    Default lowered ae-101 corolla

    Past few days, i was busy lowering my ae-101 (so called ee-100 in Pakistan). I got a TRD suspension setup from a contact . all 4 hard springs and hard frt/rear shocks. The rear is balanced with front , car doesnt roll out anymore at speed turns, going through a turn is just right going straight. Bumpy ride. 205/40/17 wheels are about two fingers from side fender. As the exhaust pipe is designed to stay away from car.. its quite close the ground now.

    rear tires are kept on slight negative camber, while frt are straight.

    so finally the day i was waiting for...great news and you cant go wrong with TRD.

    as you said yourself and correctly so, you will improve handling..specially cornering...but you will compromise the ride comfort but who cares for that..haha

    my advice is...just monitor camber wear on the rear tires closely...springs take around a month to settle...did you get a full coilover set (damping and height adjustable) or just springs and shocks and had them installed afterward?

    camber (if too much) can eat into your tires....there is a trick i can tell you how to correct the rear one without spending literally...anything...its called the washer trick but lets wait to see how ur set up looks like.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    dampers are thick,, not adjustable type.. rear coil has more turns than average corolla spring and height is less.
    negative camber in rear tire is minor,, just visible in comparison to frt. suspension came off from a japanese car.,, has some japanese worn out sticker on it. yes i bought dampers and shocks both.

    levin...any plans to get some sway bars? if you havent had it in a setup before...you cant imagine how good the drive becomes once you lower and then put sway bars in...

    This is something rare indeed for a corolla. @szuberi is right, sway bars should be next.

    simla....you know that its not very nice to just barge in like that and start posting your own pics in somebody else's thread.....i suggest you remove them.
