Hotchkis springs
well i got lots of money over christmas and was wondering how Hotchkis springs are. I know they lower about 1.5" in front and rear. How is the ride compared to other springs?

I love mine! And to be more precise it's 1-3/8 lower for the front and 1-7/8" for the back. I like them because they make the front and back for the car look more leveled. The ride is good too, pretty much and same as stock, but turn response is more precise. thumbsup

nice ride. I am thinking of buying them now cause them are only $127. Then later in the spring buy rims and install both at the same time. No point of installnig the springs now with stock wheels.

How about compared to the Eibach pro- kit with 18s. Which is a better choice having 18s. I don't want to replace shocks yet either. grin

Hmmmm...$125 for used springs or $127 for brand new springs. lol. tough choice.

if you want them, get them now. they are only $127 at www.hotchkistuning.com
they are regulary $150 which is still an awsome price.

Very pleased of that bro thumbsup

Unfortunately I live in Italy and things here are very expensive. I spent nearly $800 for those struts at a dealer in my town...
I know in US there are very different prices... cry
That's why I buy almost everything for my car in USA...even considering shipping costs it's much much cheaper. confused

Bye wave

Oh yes Bro you are right.

The fact is that in Italy the things are very different.
What you call the GT here is the 143 or the VVTI,what you call the GTS here it's the TS and has about 190 HP.
This two versions have also different colors: You can have the silver only on the 143. The Ts is only like mine or carbon blue.

For example in Italy no celica can be sold in yellow or in white, and if you look the dashboard you can see that the A/C is different,you cannot have automatic gearbox,and all manuals are 6 speed.

And, as usual, it's much more expensive wtf
