kam kit with sportlines? click for more info

i just bought a kaminari kit and currently my ride is lowered with eibach sportlines (1.8 front and 2.24 rear)with kyb shocks.


Is the kaminari front bumper going to sit lower than the stock one? So far with the stock kit, I can go over speed bumps with no problems scratching.

yes the kaminari bumper sits lower than the stock bumper. i can clear most speed bumps head on easily, but for the really big ones, just take it at an angle, and there should be no problmes whatsoever.

I just got the kaminari installed last weekend - my first upgrade to my stock 2002! Rims and Tires next week - YAY!
SO here is a stock celica (LEFT) and my celica (RIGHT) stock tires on both. YOu can see it's a significant difference. I'm getting 18x8 Konig rims, they're on order so I'll followup about the RUBBING issue when it's installed. Hope this helps you!
