do it yourself and its free thumbsup if you think that your up to it the october issue of import racer has a pretty detailed install of a coil over kit which should give you some insight to the install. there is also an article from a super street mag that did lowering spring install over the summer (sorry i dont have month).

a kid told me that celicas handle like crap... i laughed

i had TRD springs installed. i don't believe there is a difference in difficulty when installing springs with a lower drop.

i paid $110 for install.

Installing springs is not a do-it-yourself type of job. You need special tools also do you really want to risk something like your springs by trying to save some money. A install can cost from 100-200.

can't you also get hurt? I saw a picture of some guy torque-ing down a spring on some machine...could get hurt if you have to do that by hand... confused

To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

You could quite easily get killed installing springs if you don't know what you are doing. If a spring shoots off and hits you. This is not like a CAI that if you mess up you might get a CEL.

$200 eh, i would do it myself for 200, you can get spring compressors on bidz.com for $17 shipped, or $36 at pep boys. then use the 160 you saved on something else
