    Pretty much any Toyota F-code diff is junk if you make decent torque numbers or really bag on it hard AT ALL.

    I've blown up 3 with stock boost levels on the 1J in my cressida. The first weak point is the pinion crush sleeve, it will collapse and your pinion will pull in and mangle the carrier. The Weir kit is a good model to work from but in my opinion is a piece of poo. This is my opinion because it cost me 20 hours of time and a second full set of diff bearings at a cost of around 300 bucks. If you have access to a lathe set the diff up with a crush sleeve, then pull it apart and machine yourself a solid sleeve. If you want I can email you a quick blueprint.

    The second weak point is the spider gears and internal pinion of the stock LSD. Under heavy shock loading they will shatter.

    If you want to beat the crap out of it, never kill a diff, but don't plan on drifting it get a Truetrac.

    I've been researching bags for my truck lately and airbagit.com has cheap prices. Supposedly all made in USA too.

    Did you have the solid spacer fail on you?

    My Weir rebuild chatters like a somebitch. Like ****in gnar. Has held up fine though. Before the rebuild my LSD had a broken spring and had worn out way far so the actual LSD members have brutalized each other (clunky).

    The weir rebuild puts the power to both wheels. Haven't had a crush sleeve problem yet at 12psi on a single. Not a lot of clutch drops or dumb **** though. But some.

    I thought I went into details but I guess I forgot. The problem with the Weir spacer is that there is nothing to locate the thin sheetmetal shims laterally. In my case the diff was awesome for a few weeks after rebuild/setup until the shims got pulled into my pinion bearings. The tolerances and preload obviously opened up, and the shims going through the bearings ruined the hard surfacing on the rollers. I fixed it by redoing the setup with new bearings, and machining a one piece spacer.

    haha ya you drive like an asshole. I've had one in my 86 for like 6 years and I never even pulled it out of the housing. SR20 on 10psi, and now a 1uz. 225 tires and abuse for the start.
    Some people break parts, some people don't. I drive smooth and I've never broke anything.

    Also, this.

    If you are not afraid, you are not low enough.
    Ever gotten high centered on a speed bump and couldn't move the car?
    That's low

    Just as drifting is the new drag racing, bags are the new coils.

    Other than numerous front-ends...

    I bought the solid pinion spacer so I could continue to drive like an asshole. There's also a difference in shock loading between SR torque beating on 4.31:1 gears in a light car and JZ torque beating on 3.9:1 gears in a car that weighs an extra 1000lbs.

    In a cressida with a 1UZ I would personally take the hour or so extra to machine a solid spacer. You never know when you're going to want to do a 3 gear burnout.

    1980 Cadillac Seville rear calipers. LS400 UCF10 front rotors. Huge pads, 25mm thick rotor, ~275mm dia.
    Redrill is so easy, 2 of the 3 holes are already there.
    Caliper brackets...shouldn't be too hard. E brake on these is hard to get working well with the amount of cable travel you get from your toyota. Steve G purchased some universal cables for his, I'll see how that turns out. Might have to find another solution later.

    What kind of master are you going to use. Will have to be big to get enough fluid moving in to those fatty rear calipers and make them do work.

    Will figure that out soon. Dad has a spreadsheet he made to determine size based on piston size, tire height, rotor height etc. He's a nerd with a Super 7.
    I think I might make a separate thread detailing the big brakes.


    Rear bag mount.
    I think I'm dropping the car about 8" lol

    I'm putting everything together and driving it to make sure I've got the pinion angle set where it needs to be. Then I'll knotch the frame about 2" for more low.

    Bumper tuck. I'm reinforcing the steel as well and adding a 2" hitch reciever. The whole point of this car is to tow and look rad.




    Bag mounts. Ignore the red, I just stole them from Vickers to mock it up. I would never run that crap lol.

    Panhard mount. Will be reinforced duh.


    Someone said build some huge traction brackets. That was a good idea! Just need to cut this in half and radius to fit the axle.
