View Full Version : Importing from USA
10-06-2003, 05:45 PM
I have my car lowered by some H&R springs but I NEED MORE!!! :D:D:D:naughty:
I've spent like 3 years looking for aftermerket parts available in Europe and I think there's nothing at all in suspension matters except for the H&R's and similar. So do you know any coilovers or big-drop springs which are distributed in Europe?
Otherwise I was thinking of importing from USA... Any ideas on how expensive could be to have a set of coilovers or at least some springs sent from the USA? I'm afraid it's soooo expensive...

why don't u try the TTE adjustable coil overs for ur ride. it's more than a 2.5'' drop!!

You're right, I forgot about TTE. It's because when I asked at local dealers about TTE lowering springs they didn't care much and I didn't get a real answer to whether I could order TTE parts from them or not. All said they would call me back but they never did.
Anyway how much would it be to import some coilovers from USA? Any clues?

no lo se!:confused:
no I'm just kiddin shipping shoudn't be more than 50-70 $. my tyc lights cost 40 to ship over from the US in 5 days. and that was a huge ass package. u might have to pay some import tax but I dunno how much for spain though.:confused:

That's perfect Spanish. Congrats! :D
I will check again for TTE coilovers but also will consider importing. What coilovers would you recommend anyway? Teins? Ground Control? Other...? I love to be able to vary ride height from, say -40mm to -80mm or more.

yeah I took 3 year of spanish in high school-that was enough to get my in trouble!!:gap:
80mm thats 3.2'' mmm that's a lot
www.tte.de for the tte coilovers

Maybe 80 is too much. I have 40mm drop now with H&R and would like 60 or so.

See, I just found some Bilstein PSS coilovers out there! 8)
No idea they were available. Any clues about their performance and drop?

10-08-2003, 09:26 AM
Evreytime I've checked KW I've found nothing for our Celica. Although a re-chek seems worthy... :D On my way!
10-08-2003, 09:34 AM
