Hey if I get the tein basics, will i run into any problems?

i've been reading as much as i could and I saw something about inner tire wear for the rear if you lower a celica, is this true?

o and would i notice better handling if i got coilovers and do a reasonable drop (not slammed, maybe like 1.5 front 1.74 rear, or something close)

Inner tire wear happens if u dont correct the toe and camber caused by lowering the car. Easily fixed with the rear camber kit made by Hotchkis. I got the front kit just to be safe.

No need for the Hotchkis camber links in the rear with my car dropped as low as it is. With the drop you want to go with, you shouldn't have too much worry about the front either.

You should notice a definite handling improvement in handling. :)

i figure i should do the drop and get sway and strut bars, and i think i'll be done adding stuff to my celi
Haha, no you'll always find other goodies to add to your car. Unless you're REALLY good at controlling yourself.

Btw clint, how much do you supposed a set of Tein SS-P's w/ or w/o edfc would go for?

ya clint quoted me close to 900 for the basics with shipping, so i'm guessing install well set me back to an even grand or maybe possibly 1100, gar i'm so tempted to get them right now, my bday is coming up in under a month and it'd be nice to have the car looking right, and my school's prom is coming up too!

sheesh so much work for a drop, right after installing i gotta get alignment (dunno how much) stripping tint (probably $40) and finally recon ($25) yup, looking like i'm gonna spend close to 1300-1400 for this drop :-/

No, you don't, just need a license. Why, you like go? I've been wanting to go for a while. It's just so gosh darn far.
