HELP! Overlander in need Almaty / Tashkent
Here's the story:
I'm in a 1993 Toyota Hilux Pick-Up in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and I have broken BOTH my rear springs (two leaves in each, it's driveable, but only with great care).
I have new springs waiting in the UK, but DHL want a life-changing GBP1172 to send them. Clearly this is the last resort.
What do I do? I will try the Toyota dealer, but I've a feeling they will just say Nyet.
Does anyone know any breaker's (scrap) yards for Japanese cars?
Does anyone know if springs from another model or another vehicle will fit a Hilux? (e.g. Hiace, Delica)
Does anyone know any spring specialists that could put new leaves in my springs?
Does anyone know a cheaer method to ship the springs?
I am in Almaty at present. I will check the car bazaar and the dealer, but if I have no luck I will limp on to Tashkent, so my above questions really refer to Tashkent.
Thanks for any help, I will deeply appreciate it.
