No apologies needed.
It's actually not my car, but I bought his old suspension. That's a cat that works down @ CCW and it's his daily driver. I plan to be set up like that once I get off my ass and install the suspension.

used car part locator Car-part dot com. It's a auto recyclers network that will list parts in their systems.

First post on the forums yet.

Picked up a 96 RL last week for $5200 cdn with only 115k kms

heated storage during the winters is my current plan while I drive my beater 96 corolla. I'm trying to keep it in showroom shape without spending too much money. I'll be around looking for ideas on possible modifications.

Hey ryk.

If you don't mind telling...what does this set up cost round about? I'm interested in setting mine down a little bit to make it stand apart more, but don't want to sink too much into it due to it being my everyday driver.

Thanks in advance.

Oh wow.

I'm at 145K on an 02, I'll probably drive it for another year or two, sell it with around 165K on it....I hope I get around $5K for it, that'd be nice.

98 RL Base 194k miles; bought in July 2007 with 148k miles. Replaced radiator which failed at 165k mi and had EGR intake manifold cleaned. Rear suspension was too soft and worn out so replaced rear struts with used 2004 struts with about 60k mi on them. The springs were upgraded in 2002 (I think) and these 04 struts resolved the rear suspension problems. Also replaced hood struts. That's about it. Great car.

Hello my name is Warren and I was recommended to come aboard on here from my friend Ryk. I just purchased a 99 RL. Its white with a tan interior. Mileage is a little high and I purchased it with front end damage. However for the price I paid I think I got a great deal! Not bad for $700. I failed to mention as well is that I flip cars on the side of my business and if anyone is selling front end parts for this vehicle I'm definitely interested at this time. Good to meet everyone and look forward to sharing my knowledge as well as learning from you guys as well.

2001 White pearl/parchment. 107000 miles. More for my kids than me but I won't turn down a drive in it. The car is very similar to our old 01 TL. I hope to get another 100K out of her.
