When you say "don't do it yourself" do you mean have a shop do it for you or just have some friends help you? Cause i am also looking to drop my celi once i get tire/rim set up. confused

Its more easier to have a shop install them. (since shops have the right tools needed)

if you have the tools and love to work on your car, then by all means, install them yourself. it'll take a while though, but it's free grin

Tein S-Techs give about 1.4" front/1.5"rear drop. with 17s that should give you plenty of ground clearance thumbsup

i say have a shop put it in, it was a bitch to do it yourself. you can do it with another persons help, but i would recommend having a shop manual for the celica handy. you will also need a strut spring compressor (rent from autozone - $40, but you get it back when you turn them back in)

Ok when droping the celica do you still need camber links to adjust the camber or will the camber still be to spec with a 1.8 drop?
