Re: Toyota bB Upgrade

Sorry for my late reply!

I've mounted all parts!
The springs and Shocks work fine! not to stiff!
the exhaust note is hollow!
only Problem is, the exhaust was correct mounted and attached
but as you can see in the Picture it goes a Little down by the rear bumper
did anyone know how to fix this??

Is it hanging correctly on the rubber exhaust hanger? If so, maybe get a shorter hanger?

Re: Toyota bB Upgrade

@tOasTerOnWhEeLs : Yes, it is hanging correctly! A shorter hanger will not fit! Maybe i will talk to my mechanic if he can fix it with gas Fusion welding.
@dubeexb06 : here are the pics from the Harbor in Japan before it was imported!

Re: Toyota bB Upgrade

so guys, the Problem with the "hanging" exhaust is solved!
a mechanic fixed it with gas Fusion!

Another question about the rear Suspension!
when i load some things like Shopping bags and so on, the rear is way softer than the front!
is there anything broken or is it correct?
is there a sway bar or something else to get it a Little bit stiffer?

Re: Toyota bB Upgrade

Thinking the shocks are gone !! Rear sway bar will tighten the rear end up !! How many miles do you have on her ???

Re: Toyota bB Upgrade

@dubeexb06 : the Shocks are not gone because about 300 miles ago i've changed to new Eibach springs and KYB Gas-Shocks! So that can't be the Problem!

Maybe some other ideas?
