coilovers are better than springs

springs give you a smoother ride than coilovers.
my friend has skunk2 and its pretty bumpy .
i'm getting the eibach sportlines this weekend.
i'm picking them up for 190 total along with some
other stuff.

Yes i do not like coilovers eatheir.Too Bumpy.
Eibach sportline not bad at all and it will make your car looks good.
You can buy Springs for the low price here: www.Modacar.com
Or www.Pepboys.com (Just search for celica parts). wave
P.S.And how many times do you planning to raise your car after the installation...???Coilovers thumbsdown

Raise if you you what it and get an alignment to go for $80-$180.
Just get some springs and some dampers to complete it. They are all pretty much the same unless U get adjustable dampers (still not a great match). U will be better off saving for some true coilovers in the long road. Like JIC, Tein, TRD, or Hotckins w/ Bilsteins.

Most coilovers i have seen have not rode very good, especially the cheap ones. I have eibach sportlines and it is a 1.8" drop in the front and a 2.4" in the rear. In my opinion the sportlines are perfect thumbsup

so which one rides stiffer.. is it springs? i remember my friend had springs and when he went on bumps and shit, the car really felt stiff and it wasnt really good feeling. it felt like you fell off th road. is that the feeling you get out of springs?

Eibach Pro softer than Eibach Sportline.
Lower drop stiffer ride.
Coil overs in my experience are stiffer than springs.
