Tien Springs

If I had Tien springs I could manually adjust the height of my ride inside the car right? So basically I can lower the car when driving and raise it when going in my driveway, right?

Tein makes an eletronic damening controller that is made for the Teinn coilovers. The springs will just lower your car, you can't adjust the ride height.

Air bags good for racing? What are they exactly?

i don't think you want them. If you just get a drop that is only like an inch and a half, you should be able to get in most driveways, unless you are rolling with one of the lower bodykits.

Not completely true..my truck has airbags all the way around and i drive it about 700miles a week with no problems at all..as for the racing or going fast part, they probably won't handle as good as static suspension would on a celica..

So you guys mentioned coilovers that Tien makes, what exacly are those cause I thought there where springs you could manually adjust on the fly, although why you want to do it while driving is beyond me confused
