Any Mcpherson type strut/shock for the celica will not last with eibach sportlines because they're too low. If you insist on replacing your struts and keeping those springs, look into kyb agx struts.

thanx for reply steve~ thumbsup
what is Mcpherson type shock? hehe ^ ^
yea I was looking at 2 kyb products GR-2(GasShocks/Struts) and
AGX (AdjustableShocks/Struts). These are not Mcpherson type shocks right?
Have you use the AGX shocks/struts before?
thanx steve,

I'm going to keep things simple, just get celica specific struts made by AGX... they are all mcpherson type.
