Did the front and rear struts over the last day and a half, kinda annoying doing it for the first time but once the 1st one of each front and rear was done the 2nd was smooth.. Used my spare struts i had so who knows how good they will be..
Just changed my oil again because the oil psi was kind of low, made a big difference changing it.
Update here: One thing i forgot to mention is the car came with a TON of extra parts, such as all manuals i need, struts with TEMS, Front and rear seats in nice blue cloth 9/10 condition, Side panels for the doors, brake calipers, whole A arms, a rear diff, a rack and pinion, two heater cores, a whole gauge clutser and more.... Check it out.
Progress on these, have attempted to get the maroon supra to start with no avail.. yet... It cranks great but my guess it's been sitting almost 15 years, the registration on the plates it has on expired in 2004. Ran a compression test on cyl 1 with over 130psi, going to check the other 5 cylinders tomorrow. Engine light comes on when key is turned on which is good, spark on cyl 1. The gas is bad, so I pulled the fuel tank and am going to swap over the fuel tank from the white one as it sits since I know that car runs. I took off the air filter housing to find a K&N air filter caked with dirt! Cleaned it out. Going to put brand new plugs and wires (brand new ngk wires came in the car) on and see what happens. Broke a lot of hoses, they are all very rotted. Definitely needs alot of TLC. View attachment 248217View attachment 248218View attachment 248219
So update, haven't driven the maroon supra in two weeks due to me being ill, I ordered all new bushings for the car, and also got a transmission from a fellow supra owner Abe, got a great deal.
I also finally bought a shop crane and engine stand and picked up a rear sump oil pan for my 2jz, (which i am really not certain about with what i am going to do what so ever)
Anyway, supra still runs awesome, i need to get the passenger window to work, and also disable the alarm system because I am tired of disconnecting my battery every time I leave the car alone.
Also something somebody might be able to help narrow down, my idle is about 950rpms warmed up and goes down to 700 when in drive, seems high to me. Checked for vacuum leaks to no avail,when I unplug my iacv nothing changes, is that normal?
I have a very loud droning/howling sound and powerful vibration from 58-70mph it deepens it's tone when I let off the gas and decelerate. It sounds like it's coming right from under the center consol underneath the car, but it's hard to confirm that. The steering wheel does not shake terribly, I just had the tires mounted and balanced (used). My transmission is slipping somewhat, but it doesn't seem to care if it's in gear or neutral. I just swapped the struts out, I also know the control arm bushings are nill. What are your thoughts?
I am about done getting my car repainted and now I am looking at getting new wheels. I currently still have stock wheels. Can I go up to 18 inch rims without any issues This is just a car I have had for 20+ years so no racing just cruising around. Everything is stock I will be putting a body...

I'm trying to use the ABS sensor in my R154 to spit out a speed signal. There are 3 wires coming off the sensor, and according to the 1jz TSRM, they are:
Red (Speed Signal)
So, I hooked up the white and black to get power to the ABS sensor, and measured the voltage...
So an 89 became available yesterday in Santa Fe Springs, CA, a few miles from my house. It had been picked over decently. Around here even 1 day people descend quickly.
On a funny note whomever took the trans left the engine sitting at a nice angle towards the passenger side. I wanted the...
