New Rims, Fixed Cylinder Head Cover= YAY!

There are a total of 3 pics, so please wait to post till they are loaded.

The rims are 17 inch Moda R6's wrapped in Yoks. Ride like a dream, and no tire roar (only took it up to 60mph though).

Also, my GF's dad did a great job on the oil pipe in the cylinder head cover, so I managed to remount it, and everything works great.


Sorry, took these very quickly, and the far away pictures are blurry because I had the camera on close-up mode. The close-ups are a little better.

I need a drop.

What do you think, 2 inches?

I was looking at the Eibach Pros, but I think I might go with a coil over to drop it a couple in the front and a little less in the back to give it a more agressive look.


Gotta read up though, cause lowering isn't my area.

Sportlines will be best on ur car, i believe that they are a 1.75 inch drop all around? i could be wrong but im sorta positive that its 1.75, leaves enough space for a bodykit, and if you dont get one, its a lot less scraping then that extra quarter inch would do!! Good luck bro.

I will see if I can take some tonight or tomorrow. I'm at work now, and I took the pictures in a hurry and before I realized what happened, I forgot to take the camera off of "micro mode."

As for the coil overs, I was thinking about that, but if you have to manually adjust each one, how can you assure that they are all the same height?

What I mean is, if I want a 2 inch drop in the back, do I have to compensate on the left side for the weight of the gas, or how the hell do you do it?




On another note, I was looking on Tirerack.com, and I was browsing around their lowering kits, and came across the Eibach Pro kit. Drops it 2 inches all around, and of course, if you drop 2 inches or more, you have to buy alignment kits. Is that all you have to buy for a drop like that, or is there more because all they recommended for the Eibach Pro kit is THIS

does it have to be slotted or can it also be cross drilled or both?

btw, good deal on the valve cover issue.

Um, anything I guess. I will research which is better later, but do you know what brands I should even consider buying?


Also about the head cover...Yeah, it is a good deal. He saved me $300. Fuck Toyota. tongue

brembo, rotora, powerslot, powerstop, AEM, TRD, ssbc and maybe wilwood or baer.

brembo would be the most expensive. there may be more but i'll have to check...

Thanks, I'll do some research on those.



Ok, here come the flames. I know that people have asked this like 300 times, but does anyone have pics of Celicas with 17's, and different drops that are maybe side by side so they are easy to compare? Can't really do any searching now because I'm supposed to be working. bs

What do you have to get in addition to it because it is so low?
