Lowering Springs

Im most likely going to be getting a celica next week an I want to put the Veilside II kit on it adventually. How low do you think I should drop it, considering the fact that i'm going to put a kit on it later? Also what springs do you recommend?

my OPINION...

look into getting eibachs, teins, or hotchkis before TRD springs.

eibach pro: 1.2" drop in the front, 1.1" drop rear
eibach sportline: 1.8" drop in the front, 2.4" drop in the rear (you will need to check your wheel/tire sizes if you get a vsII kit on)
tein s-tech: 1.4" drop in both front/rear.
hotchkis: varies depending on whether you get the gt springs or the gts springs...average is around 1.5" to 2"

why would you suggest the others before TRD? just degree of drop? because eibach pro and TRD lower to relatively same levels...
