NEW TO SUSPENSIONS

Hey guys i raeally new to suspension upgrades, but im looking to get the celica lowered. Any suggestions? I heard that the stock setup is really good and that some aftermarket suspensions might make it worse. Another concern for me is that ou know how the celica is slightly higher in the rear? Well If i were to lower it, should i get like 1.75 for rear and 1.25 for front, or will it even out by itself even with the same size. One last thing im looking to get lowest drop with SPRINGS only without having to worry about ruining things and good price also.

The phone rings...a sexy voice says "hey baby nobody's home, come on over". So I go over and there's nobody home.

Goto the review section and check out the springs. I have tein springs and they work good. Some springs have even drops while others dont. Just look around. Also unless you have like less than 30k miles i would get some shocks too. Lowering the car puts more stress on your stock shocks and they well evetually give out. So might as well do it all at once. Shocks cost like twice as much as springs.

Any drop should be required to get adjustable rear camber links, its just safer that way and is the most accruate way to fullly adjust your camber to match the springs. So, new adjus camber links from hotchkis, id say go with springs from tein (1.4 all) or hotchkis (1 3.8f/1 7.8r), and kyb agx, but if you can get the custom konis to match the low drop with the hothchkis, do it. Make the end links from hypermotive i think it is, and way bars and strut bars. Just do a full suspension setup for the best ride. Also, pillow ball mounts for front struts. But overall, id say go with Hotchkis FULL Stage suspension. I beleive you can get coilvers, camber links, sway bars, strut bar and the forward coilvers you can get the adjustable camber to match. But its really all up to you, all we can do is help, point you the right way and give you many ideas!
