ST165 in Washington (rear struts?)

Postby MValor1029 » Sun Sep 04, 2016 8:39 pm

I just got my hands on an '88 all-trac. While I am not a mechanic, I am a driver and if I want to drive this car I figure I should learn more about the mechanics of it; where else better than the forums?

I was able to get my hands on bearings and front struts alright, but I'm struggling trying to find rear struts, even stock. If anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it! After getting these things replaced the rest is pretty much cosmetic, car runs like a champ.

Rear struts for the ST165 are a single piece and have been discontinued by Toyota. You have two options:

1) Cut the top off your existing and weld a new threaded top. Insert MR2 front strut.
2) Coilovers.
