Wanted: supplier for shock absorbers for ST65 Celica

Postby iTV » Wed Sep 09, 2020 12:08 pm

I thought this task would be simple, but it isnt over here in Europe! Does anybody by chance know, where I could buy new shock absorbers for my ST165, original or aftermarket - doesnt matter? An Online shop with the opportunity of shipping to Austria would help me a lot...

I found those part numbers from Toyota, but couldnt find any shocks...

front
right: 48510-20392
left: 48520-20382

rear
48530-20180

Thanks for your support!

I think KYB was the last remaining company that made OEM fitment rear dampers for any Alltrac, and they were only sold in Europe. It's been a while since I looked for them though so those may be gone as well.

The fronts are just damper inserts so you can get those from KYB and a few other companies, there are also threads on here about other dampers that unofficially fit. Converting to inserts for the rear may be your best option too. You'll need a competent welder and a spare set of fronts off any 4th or 5th gen Celica to do it, or a machine shop to make up to pieces.

Ceika makes coilovers for ST165. I have them on mine. I think they ship worldwide too.
The owner of the company owns his own ST165.

I'm not sure I would recommend them. They are Extremely Stiff. I even replaced my springs with softer ones. It's still almost Kidney damage when I drive.

I'm looking to get better coilovers someday

You could also do a conversion on the rears to accept inserts. I bought these made by someone else using Ground Control but it can be done if you know how to weld.

Zaluss, You HAD Ceika coilovers to, right? What's your opinion of them?

Same. Too stiff and was touchy to adjust camber which is why I sold them.
