struts-ground coilovers ?

my question is about the stock struts . i have ground control coilovers on my car and when i talked with somebody at the tire kingdom, the guy told me you have to replace the stock struts with aftermarket struts. The reason he explained me is stock ones are not good one to use with ground control coilovers.

do you think i have to buy some aftermarket struts ? if so . which brand you recommend highly for 2000 celica gt ? thanks everyone

depends on how low you go.

Don't go lower than 2 inches. I highly recommmend them. I don't recommend those coilovers though.

you know what, that guy is a stupid mofo, you can use the stock struts for ground control coilovers, trust me, i have GC Coilovers and my struts are stock, if you change it to aftermarket ones, theres no problem with it, and its even better thumbsup
