Slowly building my Toyota collection

Postby Mad Mike » Mon Nov 14, 2016 5:41 pm

Hello all
Joining to ask questions about the st165. I usually just lurk but I need some feedback on the rear spherical bearing OEM vs aftermarket. I am in the middle of doing bushings and suspension. I went with an st205 swap since the engine and turbo were tired when I picked it up about a year ago. I currently have an ae86 purchased in 2004, and then some years later I bought a cressida and did a 1jzvvti swap/coilovers/2way. I have driven the st165 around with the st205 swap and its a lot of fun, it just needs the floppy noodle suspension to be updated.

Hey Mike,

Here is a thread which might help to answer your question. Summary: keep the OEM spherical bushings, everything else can be poly.
