Re: decent springs?

my brother bought tanabe for his celica, he says he doesn't like them to much, i drove his car, they felt pretty nice but didn't drop his car very low it seemed.

Re: decent springs?

I got megan racing springs for my 5th gen just as a temporary thing till i get coilovers. The front didnt lower as much as the back probably still an inch and a half of wheel gap but the back is actually slammed. Cant even fit a finger in between the tire and wheel well

Re: decent springs?

look into neuspeed race springs and kyb agx struts .. these are about as good a set up as your going to find without going to at least tein ss set up ( i dont have any faith in cheap coil overs as for the most part there just that cheap ) its about as good a set up handling wise as your going to get in the price range .. i know a lot of guys here use koni shocks and ground control set up . ive driven on both and i think the neuspeed / agx set up is superior but then again i tend to like a very stiff ride without much body roll ..

Good springs not enough drop. Only like 1". I dont like kyb struts that much. Theyre more of a factory replacement and no so much made to go low imo. A better choice is tokico HPs (blues). Theyre around $300 shipped. Good cheap full coils are function form type 1. Theyre about $630 shipped.

Thats a very common problem with springs. Its called the "boat look" thats why i use coilovers. And just because springs dont go low enough for me.
