Which Springs To Buy

Ok, now that my 18"s are on my car, its time to lower it some. Anyone want to give me their opinion of the springs they have? I was thinking of going with TRD. I'm not looking to put it on the pavement, just want 1-1/2 inch drop. Thanks for the feedback.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much damn space!

Does TRD make 2 different springs? The drop on my TRD is only a tad over an inch. With those, you won't need new shocks.

Depends, you dont have too but Id suggest getting a new set because lowering springs will wear harder on the stock shocks, and if your doing the spring install yourself then youll only want to do this one time. Might as well put in new shocks while you have it all apart.

I have 18" Giovanna's on my Celica. With Eibach PRO-KIT Springs. This is a 1.2 inch Front Drop and 1.1 inch Rear Drop. I think it looks GREAT and feels GREAT... thumbsup

And if you fill the trunk and let 2 people sit on the back seat you don't scrape the body on the tires?

Just a question grin ?
