Where to find longer end links?

The TRD rally suspension lives again!

It took longer than I planned, but I have once again installed the rally TRD rally suspension. This time in a 2019 Series Grey BRZ.

Due to the larger Brembo's on the Grey I needed better brake clearance. Enkie Sport RC-T5 are true Tarmac wheels. The 17x8.5et45 with 245/40r17's fit perfectly.

My experience with the handling characteristics of the TRD Rally suspension on the FRS lead me to decide against using the TRD Rally Struts, and instead opting to use the SACHS performance package struts as they felt significantly better than the OE FRS struts and valved better for the kind of driving I do 99% of the time.

Nice wheels! I'm planning on a set in 15x6.5.

Also glad you got another GT86.

Do the TRD struts and shocks come with different bump stops or do you re-use the stock ones?

If the Series Grey didn't come with these damn brembos I would have gotten them in 15's as well.

90% sure it came with them. I can't find the photos of the full contents of what came in the box though.
