Suzuki Vitara Shock Rebushing to suit AE95 Corolla Wagon

image

It’s been a little long in the making but I finally have found an OEM rear shock absorber that I’m pleased to say works beautifully in the rear end of my AE95 corolla station wagon.  It’s not an terribly challenging task.

I sourced a really neat set of factory Japan made Tokico Rear shock absorbers from a 1993 Suzuki Vitara.  Whilst the top Mount points are bang on the rear eyelet requires a rebushing. 

I sourced a kit from super cheap auto using bushes made to suit a Ford Falcon Panhard Rod.  The idea these would fit was based on measuring what was in the shocks from the Suzuki and finding something of a similar spec. 

Very very very easy to do and ultra pleased with the results.  The springs are now. Captive, the car is very Comfortable and compliant and it was very cheap at just $60 all up. 

Happy Handling!
