Alignment shouldn't cost a lot I get my car aligned for 30 bucks. But you should be fine with that kit. Doesn't seem like a major drop looks perfect. You're ride will be very safe Eibachs are awesome. When you put springs on your ride you may want to invest on stabilizing those coil springs since it may cause a neg. camber on the front and rear of your tires. Like getting a camber kit. Springs sometimes can cause your wheels to butterfly. Making the inner tire wear out quicker then usual. Usually on stock suspension springs will settle for 1 month then the shocks/strut will tend to weaken and can cause damage to your suspension. Giving you a harsh ride everytime you hit a bump. It'll feel like a donkey kicking you up the butt if you don't replace the shocks. The normal time the shocks will last estimated is about 2 months at most before you feel that feeling when you car is just sooo harsh it hurts to even go over a bump.

It gets harsher after that due to the settle of the shocks and the settle of the springs. The coil spring doesn't have enough coil to spring back since it slowly settles the absorbtion or impact which cause you to feel the bang!

Most people who have coil overs always have mis-alignment since the adjustment tend to change in the coil springs compression not equally balanced. Especially if you're the type who loves to adjust ride height often. But it's not a big deal! The springs should do you the justice 18x7.5 would be nice on those springs. Anything larger you should stiffen up the ride before going up any higher. Check to see if you have ti change any the rubber doughnuts!

The suspension will never be a soft as stock suspension since your are riding higher above the ground and the celica stock already comes with enormous coil springs!

Other then that those springs are awesome they will do you good! If they even get harsh you know what to do! Save up to 30-40 bucks for an alignment. Shouldn't cost more then that. Word of advice don't ever cut your spring no matter what that is a no no! The less coil you have the ride height will get worse in due time.
