a Hotchkis drop would look good...
but if you are getting bodykit, then you gotta think about it first.

ditto. if you live in a warm climate with relatively good raods then a 2" drop should be fine. i wouldn't drop it more than that because the celica already has a low stance plus even with good roads there are always speed bumps, steep driveways, etc.

if you plan on adding a body kit in the future you might want to consider getting less of a drop for the same reasons..you're average ground effects kit will drop your car at least an inch

exactly what speed4theneed said, but if you decide to get a body kit in the future you can just get new springs

oh by the way with a 2 inch drop you'll need a camber correction kit and new shocks

yes...a 2 inch drop is going to wear your suspension more...

like I said...
see what body kit you are getting if any, then decide...
I recommend a Hotchkis drop though.

You don't need a camber kit for your car (unless it is not a celica) I dropped mine 2" with eibach sportlines and I had enough adjustment to correct any camber changes. Although I do recommend getting better struts. I am still using stock ones and it wasn't as stiff as my old 92 celica with the same amount of drop and better struts.
