b4 everyone flames you... search button!

and you need to be more specific, how much do you want to lower it, do you want to lower it enough where you need new shocks or do you still want to use the stock ones... etc

Depends how low you want and what size of wheels you have. I have 18" and Hotchkis springs. I'd say the ride height is perfect, and it's a good balance between performance and comfort. They'll lower the rear of the car more than the front so the car looks more levelled! thumbsup

you need to think about what rims you want, if a body kit is planned, and how low you actually want to go

i have 225.40.18 and im planning on getting TRD springs...
i was not going to get springs and get a kaminari kot or something..cuss for some reason they look low already...

i live in a city full of bumps, hills, pot holes and high sidewalk entrances to garages. i cant even make it with stock hiehgt...i have to slant hella..

so will this be a problem still? having 225/40/18 with TRD springs and going up my garage?

thanks..

kit is a must becasue i hate how the celica GT looks in the side profile...too long and too narrow..imo
