That probably means that the rear doesn't need coilovers to get low. Kinda like if you buy lowering springs for an '87 Civic you only get rear springs..

IGHT!!!!

so i have found another wagon for pretty cheap and im gonna get it within the next few weeks. its having some work done to it before i get it...

so its a 81 Toyota Corolla wagon, its silver with tented windows, it has the 2tc engine in it with Weber side-draft carbs on it, it has a 5 speed trans out of a 77 rolla that had less that 90k on it, cat-back exhaust, already lowered some, and really decent interior.

the price is 1500 bucks, or 1850 with some 13x8 Rota RB's......
