Tanabe DF 210 and KYB AGX
Just ordered my suspension, i've read all the posts on the celica needing a camber kit for drops over 2 inches. Only thing is i've heard people say that this spring drops 2 inches and other say it's more than 2, so for those of you who have them, do i need a camber kit, if so do i need both front and rear? also what is a good setting for the KYB AGX for everyday driving? i've got a bomex kit and 18 inch wheels with a 225/40/18 tire for the height info.

The DF210 gives a 2" all around drop, and you don't need a camber kit. As for the setting, IDK, but do you want a smooth ride or a stiff ride? Do you like taking corners fast or do you preffer to cruise around?

I have the GF not the DF on GR2s not AGX. You don't need a camber kit but you do need a 4 wheel alignment.

The rear on GFs had a lot of negative camber before the alignment and there a 1/2 taller than yours.


your going to be LOW!!! thumbsup

cool cool, mine will come in wednesday thanks to the supra store in florida. wheels and tires will go on within about a week, so give me some time to get some pics and we'll see how low it is. hopefully the 225/40/18 will push the bomex kit a little higher off the ground than expected, otherwise i'm gonna have to rethink where i'm going before i get in my car. anyways my car should be completed within the next month, and i'll finally have something to show for the 75+ hours of work a week i've been doing to get the money for all the mods. thumbsup

I had my springs just installed today and vemon was right, its a 2in drop all around, its low but not tuck in low, its about 2 fingers from tread to fender/quarter panal gap. its good enough but not as good as a 1 finger clearance or 1/2 a finger clearance but its good enough for daily driving thumbsup

2 questions: Do the tokico struts heighten the car? and do lowering springs settle down a little bit more as you have em?

what do you mean by heighten?

It usually takes about two weeks for springs to settle down.
