I already installed them like 6 months ago...

Way better than the solid brass bushings!


Worth the price!

OEM Water Pump

OEM Coolant fluid

Goodyear Gatorback serpentine belt

New O-ring for the oil dipstick

Need few smaller bolts because the old water pump legs was differents than the newer model of water pump.

Even the pulley need smaller bolts


The car is super quiet now!


The water pump bearing was shot! Alot of metal shaving inside the pulley

Buy MWR or TWM...

Even another knockoff of the TWM is available. I think it's Ralco or something like that.



It's a short throw... not just a shorter stick!

Dont try to mod your oem assembly. Doesnt worth the time,money and effort IMO

The bug deflector was already on the car when I bought it in 2010.

I need to install my rusty hood and my custom grill for the winter soon

#1324608 How Stiff Are The Stock Xrs Springs And Shocks?

Posted by hoooboy on 08 November 2015 - 07:19 PM

I already sold my Matrix XRS springs for a base model matrix... same height, no difference at all


Only Corolla XRS 05-06 have different springs (0.50" lower than the normal corolla)

Grease all my weatherstrips

The trunk rubber was very sticky and also noisy everytimes I open the trunk!





But I did use Kleen Flo EZE Slide because Sil-Glyde is not available in Canada.
