i have ground control w/ koni shocks. the ride is a bit bumpy. koni has lifetime warranty so if they die, you can always get new ones. good luck.

I just got my Tokico's installed with stock springs. I can feel a little difference compared to stock struts, but I am happy with them.

can you put any type of coilovers on aftermarket shocks?
i've seen tockico's for sale, and i don't know if i can put my coilovers on those if i take them off my stock shocks/struts.

i had to modify my skunk2's and koni's to make it fit. if you want to install a coilover sleeve on stock shocks, you will need to cut the front lower spring perch off.

No you cant,.. for the celica its weird , they have three types of coilovers The 1st generation where it will only fit the stock shock, the 2nd generation which will fit aftermarket shocks such as koni, tokico's , kyb etc... the 3rd is just a true coilover, I am going with the 2nd generation one which will fit the aftermarket shocks, the first will not be worth it cause you eventually gonna have to get new shocks anyways!! hope this help...
