Do you still have the torsion bar bracket that was mounted on the arm? Makes a great wrench

right side is all welded up and por-15'd
Yota hubs cleaned. got bearings punched out. studs punched out. sending off to shop when they open back up (state shutdown)






lower control arm bushing bolt, welded nut to it.
these were a pain, had to use map gas to get them out. then cut the sleeving down the middle to get it off. reused it, anti-seize goo.

got hubs back. they looks correct. was $40. was a nice guy.
ordered tie rod. v6 calipers. yota rotors (i think v6 n 4cyl were same).
i have 17" RSX rims to put on. i have to mill the inside hub portion to fit.

my 14s wont fit on drop spindle.


will have to drive it as this setup for now. moving soon. buying a house. will not attempt motor swap or axle swap yet.

will update with hubs, brakes and wheels then a pause for a few weeks

FWIW, on my yota upgrade I used v6 rotors, on paper, they were different that the 4 cylinder ones. And the stock D21 4 cylinder calipers. I had to shim the caliper bracket inboard some to center it on the rotor...

Default RSX wheels toyota hubs and machine work

outside of hub grinded down by bench grinder.

painted with my friends favorite color...





got this hand router off ebay for $30shpd. the bit was $8.

not a deburring tool but an actual carbide bit.
cuts real easy. makes alot of shavings.
