    The SA63.

    -Just picked up a sa63 celica notch back for $1000 for my first car.

    Rear.

    -Independent Rear Suspension.
    -Drums Brakes.
    -Stock Springs and Shocks.
    -also feels like it may have an LSD not sure yet.

    Front.

    -Stock Springs and Shocks close to the same setup as an ae86. (not 100% sure)
    -Disk Brakes.

    Engine & Gearbox.

    -The engine is a 2.0l 2S-C which runs very nicely, but will need to be swapped out in the future with a Camry 5S-FE or a Celica 3S_GE.
    -Gearbox - W55.

    Plans for now.

    -drop and replace all fluids, filters, belts, etc .
    -new rims and tires.
    -paint front and rear bumpers.
    -fully adjustable Megan coilovers.
    -shortened steering knuckles. (the turning circle sucks)
    -lock/weld the rear diff.
    -clutch replacement.











    If your interested in this little build tell me so that i can keep takeing photos and fill you guys in on it.

    Good choice!

    3SGE would be easiest conversion for the car. You would have a T series rear end which means you can in theory use T series LSD's from JDM AE86 (TRD, Cusco, Kazz etc) Not sure if they would be small axle or big axle though?
    Weld on AE86 coilovers will work (same strud ID etc), camber tops you have to redrill strut tops. Apparently S13 tops are closer fit but drilling a couple holes isn't that bad.

    If you ever find the lights turn on but dont pop up, its the horn fuse in the engine bay, it also has the light motor power feed. Its not marked as lights at all. Took me a day or two to work out. How many miles on this girl?
