Hey this is my first Toyoland post!
I\'ve got an 89 Tercel 2 door coupe, 5 spd that I absolutely love. For real, this is the best car I\'ve ever had.
Now the other day I noticed it sits lower on the left rear wheel. I took it to my mechanic thinking it was the shocks. He got out the big ol\' bubble level, walked all around it and confirmed that, yes, it is lower on that side. He said though that it was a worn out spring (coil) and that those things are like $300 - $500 and he wasn\'t even sure if they made them for the car anymore. I thanked him and left.
This sounds kinda weird to me. Are coils THAT expensive on a Tercel? And surely someone out there must make an aftermarket version. Further, is a coil spring something I could possibly replace myself in the driveway?
Any help would be appreciated.
