Some sort of self levelling suspension would be great, unfortunately Japanese spec Corolllas are sprung ridiculously soft.

Some not too insane tein springs are on the shopping list in the future...purely for "work purposes" ;)

I drive a Carib the same shape. With a few Dh bikes on the back it doesn't sag that bad. Maybe the 4WD springs are stiffer than 2WD.

go back into the 70's , kingswood's used to have something similar, there was an air valve near the fuel filler cap (for those of you who know where the fuel filler is on an HQ ;) ), that you could add air into to help level the ride out when carrying heavy loads / towing

The 90's Falcons had the same thing, from memory the value was in the boot above the rear lights.

Air shocks,a ton of holdens had them and a ton of people didnt even know that their car had them,my mate jacked them right up to fit fats on the back and cut the springs in the front and fitted skinnys,my bro in law fitted them to his 79 corolla saloon hotwire mags and eager low pro tyres,HOT but thats for another forum

:) I know where they are; under the rear number plate, a la Mk3 Zephyr

I love taking my 1967 VW Beetle in to petrol stations and seeing if the yoofs there can work out where the filler is :rolleyes:
