loweing a Celica
i was wondering, instead of using springs that give you only about a 1.5 inch drop, wat else can you use to drop a celica, or any other car, as much as you want?? i have heard of ones that let you adjust the ride height yourself... but, not sure


hope i get my celica soon (i mite need a drivers license first)

Coilovers allow you to adjust your ride height.

Mazania, Here's what, Visit Ecelica everyday, learn all you can learn and when you get your Celi you can be prepared to hook it up. There are different types of coilovers. The ones that come to mind for the budget minded look like this:

The first pic your notice the stopper on one end and an adjustable sleeves on the other. you adjust the height by turning the sleeve thus compressing the spring causing the desired lowering height.

The second Pic is a bit more expensive and if you got the money go for it (Tein)
