    2000 corolla part

    Hi guys, this one is for the toyota experts out there. Im trying to find some rear coil springs and shocks for the mrs car, its a 2000 corolla station wagon, 1.6L.

    Wondering if anyone knows what other models would have the same parts?

    It doesnt look like pick-a-part wellington has that exact model so just trying to sus out what else i could pull them off.

    Cheers

    Have you tried new? Find somewhere other than Repco or Supercheap and ask, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised.

    I use a place called 'Bindons' up here and they're more often than not cheaper than a wrecker.

    Do you need the springs as well or just the shocks? Wouldn't have thought that the coil springs would need replacing and shocks would only be $150 or so each I would've thought. I just did all of the shocks on my vehicle, $80 each.

    Replaced the rear springs in my wagon for only $160 for the pair with heavier duty after market ones.

    I used to replace the window regulators in the old Safari on a regular basis. Used three quarter worn out ones were only about 25% dearer from the wreckers than brand spanking new ones from the dealer.

    You will need some spring compressors to change the springs over though. I have seen people compress the springs using hose clamps or the weight of the car though.

    A couple of shocks possibly aren't going to fix that. Get some standard springs from BNT/Autolign, they're the same height, but 15% stiffer.

    Wtf is it lately
    Iv got a gun will this bullet fire??????? With that info would you pull the trigger?
    Why didn't you tell the full story at the start and we can give you better info

    Rant over

    Now if the shocks aren't leaking and it's rubbing the rears your springs have sagged
    And need new ones ,shocks stop bounce spring hold weight
    See how a little bit more info helps
