    Thanks for all the kind words guys, I do crazy ass engine swaps on the side in the evenings and weekends

    And yep I'm using a 79-81 celica or supra disc rear axle, I confirmed yesterday that both the celica and supra of that generation were both available with disc brakes and the majority of the parts are the same for the rear axle between the two models.

    -driveshaft will be custom
    -transmission is the s13 trans
    -motor mounts and trans x-member are custom fabbed

    I won't be doing a complete writeup on the swap for a reason although i will be posting up plenty of pics of the overall progress. I may consider offering this swap later on down the road but it will not be for the faint of heart or wallet LOL there is an incredible amount of fabrication work involved with this

    Update time :-)

    Got the Celica/Supra rear Axle in the car tonight, only took me about 5 1/2 hours, first thing in a long time that has gone smoothly, it was a welcome change

    Here is the Celica diff in front and an SR5 drum rear axle behind, I'm stealing the 5 link brackets and spring perches off this so i can save my complete GTS rear axle


    Here Is the Celica axle with all its previous mounts stripped off and cleaned up, GTS axle pictured as well


    Celica axle and GTS axle


    Here is the brackets welded on to the celica axle and the complete GTS rear axle behnd it for comparison


    Not bad weld's for a self taught bum with a cheap canadian tire 110v welder w/gas of course tho


    Axle in the car and the wheels back on, front 1/4 view


    Rear view with the wheels on


    Overall I am VERY happy with this swap, I'm having the custom driveshaft built tommorow to the required length, the Celica Axle is MUCH beefier and has a 22mm wider track along with 1/2" larger diameter rotors and beefier calipers, should help even out the brake bias a bit with OEM pads and rotors in the rear and KVR Xdrilled with hawk HPS in the front. I am almost positive that if i pull the axles I should be able to swap the GTS caliper brackets and rotor onto this axle though, its something I am going to investigate a bit later on though

    where did you find out that the celica came with rear discs?

    as far as i knew the Celica Supra was the only one to come with rear discs......

    any who if you could let me know where you found the info......i would like to read through it.

    odd you had to move the spring perches.......I did not have to move them on my swap....

    there is a fellow in the states is running Porterfield R4-S pads in his Celica Supra axle.

    looks good.....there is also a helical posi unit available for the 7.5" toyota diff called TruTrac....

    how i found out that the celica was also available was that me and the parts manager down here went through all the cross reference's and it lists the same part number for both the celica as well as the supra, two different listings.

    As for the spring perches I had to move them because I got this axle after someone had alreayd started modifying it for something or other and had already cleaned the stock perches off

    Are you planning on running the mk2 supra brakes on the front of the car too? It's an easy swap, just put the whole strut in, along with the brakes and everything. You just need to make a custom NC-RCA to adapt the balljoint/steering arm sizes, cuz the supra has wider bolt-spacing than the corolla. Better yet, build coilovers out of the supra struts.

    Bigger brakes in the front would be nice, to match the bigger brakes in the back.

    BTW, nice garage, and nice toolbox in the bacground.

    Actually I'm gonna be running KVR x-drilled with hawk HPS pads up front and for the summer i'll be running OEM rotors and stock pads, I'm really curious to see how the brake bias turns out because toyota's are always notoriously front biased.

    Thanks for the good words on the garage, it actually belongs to Garagefujimoto, although the toolbox is mine :-)
