    Smile Left & Right Coil Springs - SUV dilemma - SOLVED by Saaduk

    Hi,

    I'd like to discuss this here and see what comes out of this discussion.

    I recently changed the suspension on my SWB 90 series and saw a big difference in ride height, ride quality and handling ........ till recently..... that I started coming across pot holes on the roads.

    The left front wheel just shoots down when it comes across a hole or even a speedbreaker. The down force is tremendous and one can feel the THUD.

    I got onto to investigating the matter and came across a site that showed part numbers, in detail with diagrams.
    http://www.toyodiy.com/

    Another one for most Japanese vehicles;
    Japanese cars online catalogs

    Found out that the right coil and left coil have different part numbers. Checked what was installed in mine and it turned out that I had 'both' coils of the RH - right hand.
    Now a question, what if I am unable to get the LH coil spring from the dealer.
    Is there a way to compensate for the extra tension on the left hand side.

    I was thinking, I have space for an extra battery just behind the left head light (which I was planning to use for an on-board compressor), what if I fill this place up with something heavy. Will that do ? Should I do it ?

    What say you guys, IF I'm unable to get the correct part.

    Interesting intellectual question posed, Sarmad.

    Personally speaking, I'd be more inclined towards you NOT doing something of that sort (at least not permanently), for the simple reason that it seems to be (at the very best) a stop-gap arrangement. The 90 Series is pretty much a staple SUV in Pakistan, so I don't really see a huge problem in you getting a new left hand spring. Moreover, in today's "global village" parts that aren't readily available locally, can be procured from elsewhere. Add to this, the fact that, within the country we have several markets where there's a plethora of second hand parts for the Series 90 (City Sadar Road, Astabal, Sultan Ka Khu, Mithu Khan ka Ahata {in Pindi}, Bilal Ganj {Lahore}, and Shuba and Tahkaal {Peshawar} immediately spring to mind).

    Of course, the possibility of the Left Hand Coil Spring for the Series 90 being a completely KKG part that isn't available ANYWHERE, can't really be ruled out. In which case, a permanent weight (like 2 cubic feet of lead) should be able to provide some ballast. Which is STILL not recommended, seeing as how we're environmentally friendly people...and lead poisoning can be a nasty thing.

    If you need help sourcing the required part, you're more than welcome to any help I might be able to render.
    Always buy cars which your children love. They'll be helpful allies against your wife, later on!

    Brother the one marked in green are family numbers, you do not need to consider that. You need to compare the PINK ones. The 10 digit I marked in pink are your part numbers.

    Thanks, brother.
    Talk about lead poisoning, you should see where I work ..... I'm surrounded by lead , so arranging a few cubic feet of refined 99.997% pure grade Australian lead should not be a problem.

    BUT
    I may stand corrected by our friend Saaduk here. I'll open up the springs and see what's written on them. The box packing could be a big mis-lead here, & I cant see the complete number when installed.

    qwertypoiu, I got OEM springs from Sohail Motors at Plaza, Karachi.
    He's good, resourceful but a bit on the higher side. But one doesn't have to worry about Jap part being mixed with Thai maal.
    Any Toyota 4x4 part you want, he has it!
