TRD springs would be the safe bet... but it doesn't "even the car out" like some brands, because it's an even drop in front and back.

Eibach Pro or TRD - basically the same drop... I chose the latter because I like the aggressive stance but still needed ground clearance

IMO, the kit will get scratched up no matter what springs your on. Rockchips alone will jack it up. So why waste your money on springs that do next to nothing for the look of the car.

When I was stock I parked side by side with a GTS that had TRD springs, you could hardly tell he was lower.

Stay stock or go at least 1.5" to 2" lower. Tanabe, Tein, Tokico, for a few brand names.

TRD! I hear if your drop your ride too much you have to get new shocks faster...the TRD spring lower the car but not the life of the shocks.

I have a GT and im puttin Eibach pro kit in this week. its a 1.2" in the front and 1.1" in the back. You should have got springs first b/c they can shave your body kit so its going to give you clearnce. Either way get eibach pro. dont get a shitty brand.. you get what you pay for...

hey just bought drops on here, eibach's, 2" for my gt, i got 17's on the car, 205/40/17 tires, and i have a buddy club kit being done right now, just wanted to make sure id have enough ground clearance... felt that this was appropriate to post in wave i have a lot of room right now so i dont think it'll hurt but a second opinion would be delicious

to have an idea of how much room here's a pic check out my old thread https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthrea...7485&Forum=,,All_Forums,,&Words=&Searchpage=1&Limit=50&Main=1869967484&Search=true&where=&Name=2534&daterange=&newerval=&newertype=&olderval=&oldertype=&bodyprev=1#Post1869967485
