J-spec = JDM = Japan Domestic Market

Does a Japan Celica have better suspension than a US Celica??

I didn't hear too good of things about it. I also heard a horror story about them. Don't get them, if you want true braking performance, get stainless steel brake lines, brembos cross drilled and slotted rotors, AXXIS Ulitmate carbon brake pads and some good brake fluid.
