WW, TRD, Molly...all of those are perfect for daily driving 'cuz they don't lower the car.

Veilside is low plus only comes in Fiberglass I think so it cracks easy...

My kit is a pain (Veilside) thumbsup

Vizage (JP) isn't that great for daily driving. It lowers the front 1-1.5", I dunno the exact measurement 'cuz the parts are getting painted, but i'll let ya know on Friday. One good thing about JP is that it's PU, so you can bend it in any direction & in a day it'll go back to it's normal shape.

you can basically get any kit, just gotta learn how to drive the car with a kit on.

FYI...veilside ONLY makes Fiberglass on most of there kits(there like 5 that has Urethane option-but definetly NOT the one 4 d celica)
there kits are made for looks and functionality japanes prefer Fiberglass because its way lighter than Urethane

true. if you care for your car, you always gotta drive carefully. but it also depends on where you live. my cuzin from chicago was riding with me in the streets of LA and i feel that bumbs n dips here are horrible enuff. he says the roads here are level and smooth compared to the cracked up roads in chicago. so...if your area has a lot of huge dips that are sure to mess up ur kit, then choose wisely.

if ya want my opinion, i'd say TRD has best the looks for good clearance.
