I never knew they made suspension...(then again, i dont' know much bout suspension). I just thought they made those really really loud and annoying mufflers hehe. Yes, back in the days, those were the best! Now, i think it's a bit played out. Sorry to go off subject.

Anyways, about the comment on teins being the best of the worst, and the worst of the best. What do you all think? I always thought Tein was good. I know a few of my friends over here want them (and they dont' have ricey cars either...).

Hey, maybe he was just improvising...no, i don't think that's it either. He should have better taste than to stick a spoiler like that on. Anyhow, as for the fart can exhaust...some exhausts just can't help sound like that. It's only rice if you have just the tip (chrome, lighted, flammed..you name it)!

omgitsroy326-

how about a DMS suspension?
a bit spendy but worth it in my opinion, direct replacement, and very high quality.
ECS-TOY-ST165-40A ST 165 $3675.00 40mm shock

ECS-TOY-ST165-50A-NT ST165 NT $5299.00 50mm

ECS-TOY-ST165-50A-NG ST165 NG $5299.00 50mm

ECS-TOY-ST185-50A-S Celica awd (1990-1993) $4825.00 50mm - you could make these fit with some work, if i'm not mistaken.

s= street
nt= tarmac
ng=gravel

note: i'm a noob and getting help from some pretty genious toyota people.

toyota was smart enought to make their parts standard... the shocks are 2" which means you can make your own coil overs with little modification. i'm going through the process in a week or 2 depending on part arival. check out speedwaymotors.com they sell the coil over kits along with a selection of springs. the whole thing should cost around $400 and for the rally guys they have the option of going above stock height. i'll be able to give more detail when i actually do the install and know what i'm talking about. this is just a teaser
