Skunk2 lowering springs, they good?
I don't know yet, but I want my celica to look nice lowered but without too much because of picking shit up on the road and all. But I already ordered the skunk2 but I think I might have made a bad decision. It lowers it 2.5" I think and that seems good and all but like others say, it may miss align the wheels or wear out the shocks more. Does anyone have any suggestions cause I'm sure I'm going to send them back and get a more resonable spring set. So which are good?

I've very happy with Skunk2 lowering springs...
Actually 2.25" front and 2.5" back...

I has slight off camber... but just get some alignment and it'll be ok..

I had them for 4 months... and it rides well...
Drops are very very nice...
You'll be happy with Skunk2...

Springs are pretty much similar...
If you don't get those popular brand then not sure how they are..
Friend has Eibach... and it's seems to be good...

you'll have to replace ur shocks and struts eventually, and you'll have to get cambers to realign ur wheels from tucking in...but all and all...the springs are good

You will be fine with those. I have 225 with Eibach Sportline. No problems.

The wheel size on Reddevil's celica in the picture are the 16x7 inch factory GTS chrome wheels.
