SUSPENSION - SPRINGS - STRUTS ADVICE!
hey whats up???
i have to decided to lower my 02'celica gts and need some advice from as many people as possible. there are several threads on this topic.. and i know that.. but one thing is common.. everyone avoids the serious questions. this actual topic does not include coil overs.. dont wanna go that low.. its still a daily driver here in NY. lol haha and im looking for more of a drop than what the TRD springs can offer. (just be aware)

1- what are the top 5 brands of springs out there? (please list brand name?/spring drop in inches"?/aftermarket struts necessary?/why do you recommend these?
2- when should i need new struts/shocks??
3- what brand of struts/shocks are of good quality?
4- a lot of companies offer a lifetime warranty or something about "no sagging" what does that mean?

thanks in advance..!! hopefully this sparks some serious discussion. If anyone live in NY preferrably Long Island please Private Message me or email me at liquidkit2005@aol.com

i went with a set of sprint springs, they are 1.8" drop all the way around. it sits up a little in the back, but when you have any sort of a load it is level. i am happy with it, but also know that you have to get a camber correction kit at this level and more, which i am getting the hotchkis for 239 delivered.
