Suspension Question Need Help
Ok this is a stupid question but I do not kno wthe answer.

If I lower my Celica with springs front and rear. Do I have to align the front and rear wheels.
On an american car you only have to align the front wheels but, since the suspension is different on the Celica I don't know the answer.

If yes, then how do you make the camber in spec. I have heard that if I drop it more than two inches I will need camber plates in the front but, what do you do with the back?????

Hotkchis makes a rear camber link if you go over 2" in the rear. As for the fron, you can get the hotkchis front strut bar w/a built in camber plate. And yeah, you need to get an alignment done a couple of weeks after you get it installed. When I took mine in, all four wheels were off like a mofo.

Yeah, I did the sportline drop on mine, and the eibach bolts corrected the front, the back is another story, you're gonna need the hotchkis camber links to correct anything more than 2" and they're about 230-270 bucks depending on where you find them. They're fairly easy to install if you got the right tools and some mechanical knowledge. Just a little note: My 18's with 225/40zr18's can not be corrected for "ideal" camber b/c the tire is up in the wheel well!! Yes, you will need 4 wheel alignment
