What exactly is a lift bolt?
I was wondering what exactly is a lift bolt and how can you tell if it is broken or not?

sight im gettin tired of this threads, a lift bolt is located right next the cam shafts. they wear out because of lift use, you can replace them every 3 oil changes, and you can tell if there broken if lift is weak, or you cant feel the kick in

yes, that is exactly right. unless they are broken, then it gets a little more complicated.

ditto. i bought mine for a whopping 49 cents apiece thumbsup

the install is also very easy. www.teamcelica.com has the best guide i've seen so far if your doing it for the first time.

^^ go to www.teamcelica.com and click on 'technical'. find the lift bolt tsb link and it's a VERY good install. it'll also tell you the part # for the revised lift bolt so you can go to a dealership and order them (usually around 50-80 cents apiece and you will need 2 of them).

it took me about 2 hours for the whole install and thats going very slow and making sure i did everything right. i can probably do the whole thing in about 30 minutes right now. its pretty easy thumbsup

hey guys. well lately ive noticed my lift kicking in a little late so i was thinking it may be time to replace the bolts.. 30k miles.. but anyways.. i asked my friend thats a mechanic up at a toyota dealership (owns a 6th gen Turbo celi) about it and he says hes never seen a celi come in for anything wrong with lift bolts.. so basically hes saying its not true that they should be replaced and then he laughed in my face confused whats up with that..??
