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?

any suspension setup will be stiffer than stock...thats kind of the point

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.
