1994 JDM GT-S Rev 3 suspension rebuild and restoration
Hi all,thought I'd post the results of my recent suspension rebuild.
Here's what I had done.
4 x Bilstein Black Series/Toyota OEM shock absorbers, 2x front top mounts, 2x rear top mounts, 2x 18mm front anti-roll bar polyurethane bushes, 4x shock tower bumpstops , 4x rubber dustproof gaiters +wheel alignment.
After living in Japan for 20 years,the last 6 in Toyota City I shipped my Black Rev 3 back here and have been slowly doing a full restoration of all the main components.
The results are outstanding and I urge anyone who has thought/dreamt about doing it to prioritise this over just about any other upgrade. It now feels and rides like you would imagine a 2018 MR2 would feel.The ride quality is excellent,much less road/interior noise and all round handling is now just superb.
Here's what else I have done:
*Full steering rack rebuild,new half shafts,bearings,re chromed main shaft,new boots etc.
*Full brake rebuild with all new discs,OEM pads,caliper service and handbrake cables and service.
*All 4 mag wheels repainted,alloy sanded and refinished with Auto clave baking and clearcoat.
*New O2 sensor,fuel filter,spark plugs,distributor cap,rotor arm,cleaned fuel injectors.
* Driver's seat side-bolsters replaced with FSA40 material,disassembled,restitched and serviced .New seam for base cushion. Both seats and floor mats steam cleaned and full interior vacuum and clean.Rear bumper and tail lights cut and polish to remove weathering.
I have owned this car since 2008,it's been incredibly reliable and I thought some here might be interested in what I've done.
Here's a couple of pics:
