Need advise for Body Kit!
Hello all,
I want to buy a body kit for my celi but don't know which one to get yet. I was thinking going with the kam kit, TRD or maybe bomex. I am looking that compliments the lines of the celi and most importantly a body kit that is daily-driver friendly, meaning I dont have to be extremely cautious when driving around town. BTW, consider my celi has a 1.2 inch drop (eibach prokit). Any suggestions as to what should I get?

hello there,
if you click the GALLERY link at the top of this page, scroll down to the body kits section, you'll see almost a complete picture list of all the body kits for the Celica.

mind you, the kit you get with the drop you have should be clear of any road hazards you have in Florida. (esp. if you get a low kit).

now onto to the choosing...

The Kaminari kit isnt low and sits at a nice height. Flows great with the Celica's natural body lines and curves.

The TRD Mechanical kit, which is a stock option, looks great as well and flows with the lines of the Celica. It isnt low and scraping should not be a problem.

Bomex...well I honestly think that the front and sides flow nicely with the Celica's lines but the rear is just ugly. Its sort of low so, I'd be careful with dips, bumps, and small inclines. thumbsup

Most of the eye dropping celicas have veilside kits, although they are expensive i think they flow the best while still being aggressive
