I wouldn't lower your car to much with the blitz. If you do you will scrape on everything. It all depends on where you drive. If you have to pull into a driveway, go over speedbumps, etc. you should leave your car a little higher. There isn't really any optimal lowering that would be the best.

true blitz? All the blitz are usually just replica's, I bought the fiberglass US version from the ecelica store. It actually fit quite well...better than I have seen. And I have genuine veilside around the sides and rear. My celica is NOT lowered at all. I think it must be at least 6 or 7 inches off the ground. I am probably going to lower it an inch. grin

I heard if you get big kits like Blitz you can get springs to raise your car but I don't know anyone whos done it except Isaac when he had his Blitz but only because he has a system in the trunk

yea...raised it to make it around stock height again...not to look goofy and have like 5 inch fender gaps. You wouldn't need to raise it.

they are very good springs...but with a blitz idk. Red Devil has a blitz front and lowered it 2 inches...it was TOO low to the ground. Hotchkis may be too much...but I am not sure. Depends on how the roads are. You can if they are super smooth, no bumps, inclines, steep hills. Stuff like that. grin

good combination would be large wheels and lowered car... everything should even out if done correctly thumbsup

19" and 2" drop - but will it still be drivable?

I got Enkei 18s installed this weekend with the TRD action kit body and anything more than 1" of lowering would make it a problem to get around on a day to day basis. REality is it looks great as is - would look better an inch lower but I DO have to get around town to business meetings.

I got bags too.I can tell he has a all-around bag setup because the front end isnt going all the way to the ground.I have Bags in the Rear and Air-Cylinders in the front,its a better setup for cars.
