Now I just wish I could keep the Poly bushings quiet from squeaking over speed bumps. They work great but seem to need lubrication quite often.
RobV6 said:Glad there was someone else. Mine hasn't sqeaked yet. If it does I'll deal with it. Have to put bars in. Car had 153,000 miles when I got it. So I wanted to do it right. And not just to go straight. ....Thanks
I kept the stock sway bars.85HOT-T said:Just out of curiosity, roll bar (sway bar) what ever you wanna call it. Who do you recomend? The hrparts looked cool, but wasnt sure if a full bar would be better.Thanks
Not that I'll ever go that extreme, but what would you say made the biggest improvement in "cruiser" ride quality?ws6formula50 said:4 Bilstein shocks, Kirbans front/rear springs, PST poly deluxe front end kit ( ball joints, tie rods etc), urethane body mounts, Metco rear lowers and adj uppers, and HRParts rear sway bar....... :biggrin: all the bracing kits, rear seat, underhood, and front frame

Well the ride is not that stiff. You are comparing rubber to poly bushing. Right now its a good time to change all the suspension/body bushings because it's almost 20 year old! If you want the handling you will have to go with the poly bushings.
Doing the suspension work on the TR is very costly because all the labor work involved but after its done it pays off because you will noticed a big difference!
