Super Strut Replacement
Does anyone know where i can get a coilover kit for a celica with Super Strut Suspension. Remember there is not two bolts at the bottom of the strut. The strut has a helper arm that connects to the hub.

TRD japan may make one. The whole point of the super-strut system was to improve cornering over the base model. Since it's not a factory feature (or option) on USA-Spec celicas, not many people have the super-strut package around here. To most of us, SS suspension would be considered an upgrade.

Try TRD Japan, since Super Strut is available on the GTS standard, most of the JDM coilover setups for the GTS should work with the super strut package. Brash-boy and Tien would be the other good bets to check out.

Tien isn't cheap, around $1000 USD

Remember, when searching for JDM parts, use the chassis code: ZZT231 (This is equivalent to euro-spec GTS)

There are a lot of kits that work with the super struts, they're just not sold in the US.

TEIN, JIC, C-ONE, Bestex, Ohlins, and TRD all have them available (in Japan).

I have a japanese celica book and TRD, Bilstein, and Tein have kits specifically for SSII celicas. tein has the HA model, and Bilstein has a super strut package. I dunno about TRD. I'm sure if you e-mail one of these companies they will gladly help.
