We’ve started our first post with how we lowered the KE70 Wagon using Lowering Block and Custom U-Bolt earlier. We found out that the stance that we are looking for not quiet enough. Move on to our next method, Reversing the Leaf Spring.
We’ve heard that some fella were doing it this way, but we never had a chance to take a look. After doing some research and Google’ing, we’ve come out with our style, Pomen Yala style 🙂 Found out that it was simpler method similar to what we did earlier.
The KE70 Wagon in progress are using the after-market APM Leaf Spring and there are only 4 leaves on it. As for that, this method won’t have same effect if apply onto standard / default factory leaf spring that comes with Toyota KE70 Wagon. The one that use on our KE70 Wagon job car are mainly use by mini van, pickup, light MPV. It’s quit harsh when driving on these leaf especially when putting it onto Wagon Car.
Luckily, the owner haven’t change to any other absorb-er for a stiffer ride 😉
So, to get things going, here is what we are trying to do. Assemble out the rear leaf spring from the KE70 Wagon, take out all the leaves, switch the bottom leaf onto the top and squeeze it in.
This will lowered the height of the main leaf spring a bit and stiffen it.
The rest of the job are being carried out by our fella team mate here at Pomen Yala.
Taken out the leaf spring out from the wagon. Clamping the leaf spring is a good advice before assemble it all together.
The leaf spring were measure from ground to top part.
You can see the different from the normal leaf spring curve compare to the finished job.
