I have the same, 03 Celica GT with Action package and I'm in desperate need of springs. But I want something about 1.5 in front and 1.8 in back or around there, but also something that is not $250, i'm looking to spend in the low-mid 100s, anyone know of where I could get decent springs for that much?

I scrape with my stock springs and the AP. I'd get TRD springs to play it safe... you're going to have problems all the time with any drop of more than 1"

Go with Tanabe superdowns 2.2 2.5 Thats what i have check my profile. Since the TRD kit sits pretty high there wouldent be a problem.

Your stock struts will wear out eventually with pretty much any spring kit. You can either replace them when you put the springs in (good idea) or wait until something happens to them.

If you drop more than 1", I think camber is probably going to become a factor that you'll want to deal with.
