I was having the same debate, but I personally went with the Eibach ground control coilovers w/ koni adjustable shocks.. just to make sure im always happy with my ride height, and if you do decide to go with the coilovers im pretty sure you have to go with the generation II one because that is the coilover that will fit aftermarket shocks but if you get the generation I ones it will only fit the stock shock which is no good cause eventually you'll need aftermarket ones!!! ... rice

I was thinking of the TRD Spring/Shock set...you think that would be good?...How much does the TRD Spings lower the car anyways?...i read it said around an inch or so...tell me your opinions and if any of you got them installed on your car how is the ride quality?

I don't either...but springs just lower your car a certain height and eventually wear out your suspension. I think coilovers you can adjust if im not mistaken? Coilovers go great along with a new suspension setup.

that's right thumbsup, springs will just drop you car at a certain height while coilovers you can adjust the height. GC coilovers for a celica will drop the stock height from .5 to 2.5 thumbsup grin

how much do the GC coilovers go for? And do they work well with stock suspension? Are the Skunk2 coil overs good too? I have seen them on a celica, they looked good.
