Suspension setups

What suspension setups do guys have and rate them on confort 1-10, 10 being confort is just like stock, I'm looking to lower my 00 celica I just got rid of my sh#$@# civic, I had Ground Controls paired with Koni shocks they were ok a little to stiff. How are the TRD springs and shocks? how do they ride?

In parkour, no one is afraid. One is just...apprehensive.

I will have the KYB AGX shocks and Eibach Sportline springs very soon and there is damper control on the KYB AGX shocks to give it a really stiff ride or not stiff at all. I can't wait until they get here, I should be getting them by Thursday or Friday and I will be able to let you know how the ride is.


My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

first of all, great ditching the Civic...hows the celica doing for you?

for suspension mods, i recommend getting front and rear strut bars, sways, lowering springs, and i guess thats it. oh btw its stiffens the ride.

the celica is doing great love it, but I hate the fact that I will not be able to squeeze that much hp out of it, it's only a GT, I don't mind the stiffer ride it feels good I just hate when the shocks are not properly mated with the correct springs causing a sort of bouncing feel.
