Springs
I have a 2004 GTS with the action package. What would be the best springs to get were i don't have to replace the stock struts. I still have the 16in stock GTS rims. So what springs will make it look good.

Your gonna have to eventually replace the stock struts eventually but the TRD springs will allow the stock struts to last a while. I would say about 2 years since your car is new unless your roads are really bad. I think I heard that the TRD's were the 3rd highest drop so someone might be able to tell you whats an even less drop.

I got H&R - the drop was 1.75 in front, 1.5 in rear I believe, and they feel fine too - my camber is fine as well

TRD is somewhere around 1.2"ish. eibach pro-kit is extremely similar and is around 1.1"ish. Tein S-tech is around 1.5", the lowest you will want with stock struts. I think the hotchis springs are not even an inch, but not sure on that.
