    I ordered new Bilstein Shocks and front Struts with springs for my 2006 Tundra 4x4 small v8. I can keep the front springs and such if you’d like. Truck only has 70k miles. I’d imagine the struts and rear shocks are still good.

    Sure as they may fit either front or rear of the corolla.

    I used GM 1978 Nova front springs on the rear struts of my 1981 Datsun 208ZX.
    Actually fit perfectly and had much stiffer rate.
    It totally eliminated the rear squatting issue of that independent rear suspension vehicle.

    Ride was slightly firmer but still smooth.
    I built a 1/4" wall round pipe rear bumper for that and had a hitch on it.

    I had one FOOL lady run around me on the on ramp to the highway and I go pretty fast.
    She about hit my car and it was a 1 lane on ramp.

    I buzzed that tweaked Z car right back around her then locked up the brakes.
    EAT some Steel bumper lady.

    Yea we were just discussing who would be at fault in brake check situation.
    I did not care at that point if I was at fault.
    I went very slow the rest of the way onto the highway but highway speed and made sure she was behind me and she went a bit slower than I did.

    NO one.
    No person got it right on the money so like in life you are all losers.
    :)
    But it is 2021 and everyone should get a participation trophy.
    That way you will feel like winners .... for now anyway.
    Wait until mommy and daddy aren't supporting you any more.

    I have plenty of trophy rocks to anyone that feels the need to be a winner :)

    My bad, I thought it was for the closest guess.

    No matter to me, I don't reload anyway. :P

    I will say this though If a person here needs 100 primers and is in a bind I will give them to you.
    Even for you Non Reloaders

    I can't imagine why a non-reloader would "need" 100 primers, unless you get a call...

    "I've kidnapped your firstborn. The ransom is 100 primers." :D

    I like to make noise sometimes and placing a primer on a rock and smacking it with a hammer gets it done.
    Wear gloves and face and eye protection or you will be sorry :)


    I have got a few "Good " rocks for you Mr. Glock
