 ?spring rates for TRD springs Reply  Edit


I have a set but I'm wondering what the front and rear rates are, did they make more than one set for 87 GTS?

Are your springs lowering springs or race springs? TRD used a color code to determine the spring rates for there race springs and are found HERE

i believe this applies to the light blue trd springs

those are just drop springs. spring rate is probably around 1.9 to 2.5 lb/in or so blue and light blue are the ones with higher spring rates. the TRD race springs are apparently made by eibach for TRD so you will save monies if you buy eibachs

I know the ae86 springs ar not listed in this link but it does show the black drop springs for other toyota cars

There are 4 main types of TRD spring for the AE86.

TRD Japan Race Springs (Come in various spring rates)
TRD Japan Rally Springs (Come in various spring rates)
TRD Japan Lowering Springs (Front = 2.8kgf/mm, Rear = 2.7kgf/mm)
TRD USA Lowering Springs (Exact spring rate unknown)

TRD USA lowering springs are the only ones made by Eibach USA. TRD Japan (including race) springs are not made by Eibach.
