i've never heard of 'sprint'

why not just buy celica springs with reputable names such as tein (better as well as cheaper than the ones you mentioned)?

buy tein s-tech springs here (along with some other nice, name brand springs for similar prices:

the eibach pro's (2nd) are very good though and you can never go wrong with eibach springs.

you can also get them for the same price in the link i gave you above thumbsup

the eibach pros will drop your front 1.2" and your rear 1.1".

this furthers your cars 'forward lean' and therefore more weight is put on your front tires. since the celica is fwd this will increase traction (which is good) but it will also increase undesteer (which is bad) because the weight distribution of the celica (which is already about 60-40) will be further skewed)

the eibach sportslines give a 1.8" drop to your front and a 2.4" drop to your rear.

this levels your cars stance out (takes the 'foward lean' away).

this reduces traction (which is bad) but it also reduces understeer (which is good) because a bit more weight is shifted onto the rear tires and this levels your weight distribution out a little more (50/50 weight distribution is what every car strives for--althoug the eibach sportlines will not affect the celica that much as to get 50/50 wd but it helps).

so, choose you're poison.

if you like to stoplight race or go to drag strips, then the pro-kit is better because handling isn't really needed in a straight line.

if you're style is geared more towards street racing, than the eibach sportlines are your choice.

if you're not interested in racing and you're more interested in style (no one can blame you) then the sportlines are also your choice due to the increased lowering and evening out of your celicas stance. thumbsup
