With 18's a 2" drop looks awesome. Some good springs that give that drop are Eibach Sportlines and Tanabe DF210's. Between those two, I like the Tanabe's better. thumbsup

Does having 17 or 18in make a different in performance? as far as speed. I thought i read an post in the forum that with 18 you can't get much speed out of it because it'll hit the inside of the wheel or something like that.

The 18's will effect acceleration a little bit making it slower.

of course everyone will bring up the weight issue with larger rims, and this is a valid point, however a more meaningful explanation follows:

- putting on larger tires means that you are effectively raising your gear ratio (numerically lowering), making your car accelerate slower but increasing top speed... The opposite is true upon going from 18's to 16's for example. thumbsup

Eibach Sportlines or Gold-lines drop will looks nice with 18"
P.S. At www.Modacar.com you can get Eibach Sportline springs for $185!
And Gold-line springs are $135 at E-celica store. wave
P.P.S. You can use stock shocks for now...

I just drop 2" with tanabe springs and put on 18" wheels 225/40/18 and it look great. You'll have about 1 finger gap in front and rear. Tanabe drops 2" all around so if you like the way your celica looks(rear being liitle higher than front) then go with this spring. I'll be posting pic of my celica with drop and rims.
