Default Wacky 1995 camry wagon modification

Hi everyone,

Long story short, there are no contemporary vehicles on the market that beat the mileage and functionality of my 1995 Camry Wagon, so I can't see spending $20K to $30K or more on another vehicle.

I do tow a trike with a 175lb tongue weight and with people and camping gear exceed the maximum capacity, in addition to putting other heavy loads in the back, thus I overload the rear struts and replace them and/or the mounts prematurely. I've been thinking about removing the rear independent suspension and installing a straight axle with leaf springs and shocks to beef up the rear end.

I haven't gotten to the point of taking measurements as yet. I reckon the uni-body would need to be reinforced where the shackles will mount and fabricate chock mounts.

Anyone go this far on a modification. Any reasons why this won't work at all?

I appreciate your input.

Dmend
