hotchkis level your car out, by dropping the rear more. I think that you will wear out your stock struts pretty fast with them cause of the amount of drop.

tein s-tech, give the same drop front and rear, so the car still points down in the front a little. I personally love the drop, perfect for a set of 18's, any lower and you will start to rub pretty bad. You can roll on your stock struts for a good amount of time, cause the drop is only 1.4".

With either of these two springs, once installed, does the car hop when you hit bumps? I put lowering springs on my 98 200SX, and every bump I hit would launch the front end off the ground, thus giving the nickname "pogo stick"

I did put new Tokico struts on it, but it didn't help. The springs were from R1 Racing and they were coilovers. I just don't want to get springs for my Celica and have the same problem.
