Arospeed Adjustable Coilovers

i got them in the mail today!!!! woohoo now tommorrow i got to go to GT3 racing in riverside to install them...

For all those celica owners out there that have adjustable coilovers,,, did you notice that they were all about the same size? i know the stock springs arent nearly the same size(front two are fat coils and back two are skinny i think) are the coilovers supposed to be almost the same size??? just wondering...

Hey Steven, I bought a set of VIS coilovers and they were all appx the same height. The problem I found with these coilover sleeves is that they don't really lower your car enough. My rear tires were tucked, and the front tires were about 2" from the fender. It was pretty much stock height in the front and slammed in the back. I hated them. And the ride sux. Really uncomfortable to the point that I almost threw up driving out of the parking lot.

Steven, I hope you have better luck w/ coilover sleeves than I have. ViS claimed that their coilover sleeves lower 1-3" all the way around, but I've lost faith in them now. Be sure to post a followup note on this forum to let everyone know how low they actually go and how the ride is. Hope to hear from you soon.
