next question, and i'm sure i already know the answer...

the alltrac celica and alltrac camry... the suspension (ie. struts, springs). to my eyes, they look similar. the question is HOW similar are they? :)

if you say interchangeable, i'll be tickled pink. :)

They are reasonably close to interchangeable. I put ST185 Tein SS coilovers on my Camry Alltrac without much trouble.

The front strut tops are slightly rotated - the camber plate points slightly forward towards the center of the car. Also, the strut tops are slightly larger (a few mm) on the Camry. A dremel fixed that one pretty quickly.

The rears are perfect.

Bolt sizes front and rear match the the ST185 (no need for strut spacers like when putting ST185 stuff on a ST165). Weight between the ST185 and Camry Alltrac is similar to ride height is pretty much correct too.

are the struts (front) interchangeable as well? same length and diameter?

the goal here is to purchase a set of Koni Yellow struts and Ground Control coilover sleeves for the Camry.

i'm guessing the 89 AllTrac Camry and ST165 AllTrac Celica suspension is pretty much identical...

Check out the install I did on the struts here:

Hopefully the pictures will help you along. If you are doing inserts meant for an Alltrac Celica, I think it would work great in the Alltrac Camry.

many thanks for the photos and write up. :)

we're going to order a set of ST165 struts (front and rear) and get some Ground Control coilover sleeves and make the Camry a heck of a nice car. :)
