    Front Coil Spring Seat help needed

    cheers, any place I could buy these? ive tried having a look at all the usual places (ebay, euro car parts etc) but i could try my local toyota garage unless you know of a place yourself
  3. evening all So recently I had changed over the front shocks and springs for the MOT , but I noticed once i had them out that the springs were not seating correctly on the top plate (Bit between the top mount and the spring) and possibly thought it had the wrong springs on prior. I did notice whilst driving and coming out of low range gears a fairly loud clicking noise which I later discovered to be the springs moving around whilst the car was in between changing gears (hard to explain, sorry) anyways so I changed them over with Tein S tech springs with sachs front shocks and the previous owner had replaced the top mounts themselves. however once the new springs were on I wasnt too convinced on how they were sitting either. the springs are definitely the right way as the wider base sits at the bottom. a couple weeks after fitting the new springs the loud click has started again and im going to check the springs to confirm my suspicions however I was just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem? perhaps the spring seats are not the correct ones? or maybe its been put back together incorrectly? or perhaps a completely different problem all together? (worn bush etc) ---Also not sure if my terminology is correct with it being called a Spring seat but the best I can describe it as being the bit between the top mount itself and the spring any help would be greatly appreciated

    Rear brake disks won’t come off

    Just realised what I was doing wrong . So when I get new rear disk brakes will I need to replace the bearings as well? Cheers
  10. Tried hammering, pushing the disk out with bolts, sprayed about half a can of wd40 on it but it just won’t budge any advice would be appreciated. Brakes are on a 91 thanks
