Mixing and Matching
I am interested in upgrading the suspension of my celica but was wondering if mixing and matching strut spring combinations or even sway bar and camber link combinations can have a negative effect on the performance of the parts or the car. I was thinking of TRD strut/spring combo w/ hotchkis swaybars and camber links. Any opinions and information are welcomed and appreciated.

p.s. I do realize that Hotchkis makes a full set for the celica but the struts and springs give too much of a drop for the area that I live in and would cause scraping most likely.

Mixing and matching is fine, just make sure they are quality products. I believe that Hotchkis has ajustable coilovers, so you can adjust the ride height.
