Hi John, wish I could've warned you in time about the AGXs.

I used to have a GS automatic Celica. I always thought it wasn't *that* much slower than a manual, but when the motor died and I joined...

Call ProParts USA. Can't promise it'll be cheaper but they can turn your shocks around faster than Koni.

Mine had 191k before it kicked the bucket. Glad you got yours running again. Mine is in a junkyard. :(

If there are any Celicas running GS or RTF at the San Diego tour or El Toro Prosolo, I'm looking for a codrive. I have 7 years experience in the car until mine oil starved at a track event (bonus: I...

Do you hear the engine actually turning over or do you hear a loud and rapid clicking noise?

It's not a question of "control" so much as weight transfer. A stiffer bar transfers more weight off the inside tire in a turn (which is a good thing up to a point - eventually you get too stiff and...

More or less. You can check to see if Koni or GC have shortened bumpstops for sale.

Thank you. People who talk about buying "coilovers" like it's hot stuff annoy me. What matters is spring rate and shock valving. Speaking of which, I don't think $400 shocks will have very good...

Listen to this guy, his Celica was fast and I can vouch for that. You'll need a revalve.

The other fast ST Celica I'm aware of ended up with similar spring rates.

This. The resistor is bypassed on the highest setting, which is why it only works there.

As for why it's hard to turn, I dunno but it's worth taking apart the center console to take a look. It's...

Will a 1ZZ from a 98-02 Corolla swap in just fine? I realize they will have the same piston ring problem, but they're easier to find in a junkyard.

Sorry for the delay, caught a nasty cold and didn't feel like getting under the car for several days.

I have AGXs. I run the fronts full soft and the rears on setting 2 (one step up from full soft). I tolerate a looser rear end than most folks do though. I wouldn't go stiffer than 2; the AGXs adjust...

Yeah, I was afraid of that. It went sort of like:
