Coilover rebuild

Hi there, Im new here, Dont drive a mr2 i accually drive a ae100 corolla. I have TRD coilovers in it at the minuet and i think the rear dampers are gone. I want to see about rebuilding them and all i find when googling rebuilding coils is this site so i thought id ask here. I've found replacment dampers here;

will they do the job or would there be complications with the length of them.?

The TRD's have inserts, versus the stock MR2 struts.
This means you have to buy new inserts. TRD coilovers came with either the AGX's (which apparently suck) or Tokico (much better, but not as good as Koni).
you will have to do some research to figure out which Koni part numbers will fit your housings. Spend money here, your lower back will thank you later ( i.e. Your car won't bounce down the road, turning your kidneys into mush and your lower back into a pain generator).
