The Celica already has the nose sitting lower than the rear. If your numbers are correct, it will be even worse.

Your probably gonna get those tanabe Df210 springs (2.2 2.5). I currently have these on my car and i love them. And even with a TRD body kit i don't ever scrape, So you have nothing to worry about being your stock. I also suggest you get some new shocks and structs plus camber links (Hotchiks) Due to the extreme drop. thumbsup

The stock urethane bumper won't break if it hits the road or a driveway. It might get scraped up, but it won't get broken unless you step on it or drive over it. tongue

I've scraped the bottom of the lip less than 3 times in the past 3 1/2 months.

The front can only go down another 1/4" or so. The tires are 195/60-15.

what would be some of your guys suggestions as for lowering? Not too low not too high? because imma get some springs but iono about 2.5" because of the kit i have on the Vielside EC-1. What do you guys suggest i get to make it look nice and hardly scrape.

Lets play that game called I'll light you on fire and I'll piss on you to put you out
