KYB AGX
I install a new set of AGXs with old S-tech spring but my celi seems to be higher than before confused Does anyone have these AGXs that had the same problem like mine??

i have the AGX shocks/struts on my celica with hotchkis springs thumbsup. I didn't have that problem. they dropped my car a good 2 inches. I don't know why you're having a problem confused

Were the springs on the car before you put the AGX's on?

The struts won't raise or lower the car.

it could be because your old struts were worn, and old, and the height your at now is the height its really supposed to be, but since your struts were worn, its gonna cause the car to sit lower!!

my kyb agx struts took a week to settle before it went all the way down on my tanabe df210 springs, so if you just did the install like a day or so ago, give it time. they'll go down to where they should be.

I paired my KYB AGX shocks to Intrax springs. I have one finger gap in the rear and two finger gap in the front. Probably because of my heavy mdf box with two 12" Crossfire subs in the trunk, but it lowered my car, not raised it like yours. Give it some time to settle in.

i will have the same setup by sunday after installation. currently have Tanabe DF210 with stock shocks and will replace both with Tein S-Tech and KYB AGX. I will check on the difference on both as soon as it settles...

that's good thumbsup saw in your profile you're running a 35 profile tire, better watch out for potholes wave personally i'd run nothing less than a 40 when you get your next set.
