springs? get eibach pros or sportlines, hothkis superforms, or tein s techs springs.

coillovers are better (but much more expensive) and you'll be better off going with tein ss, tanabe pro, hotchkis, and i think skunk2 makes good coillovers as well.

of course...my favortie suspension is air bags, though. (sometimes cheaper and imo, better than coillovers). although coillovers are more reliable you can beat instant adjustability and it's so much more show quality.

i just listed coilovers in my 2nd paragraph of my 1st post (2 up).

hotchkis does make coilovers, and you can view them along with many other suspension types here:
intensepower.com: celica suspension

the hotchkis coilover set is about $1,900.

like i said..i want airbags more than any other type of suspension.

if i went springs/shocks/struts i'd probably get eibach sportlines and tokiko shocks/struts

if i went coilovers i'd most likely go hotchkis. thumbsup

Not go???? Are you talking about show quality? Cause I don't think they clash even though you hardly see them.
