You guys gonna do any installs any time soon?? If so, you wanna do the installs together?? My car is pretty much stock except for TSRM, B&M SS, and lights. So, I'm open to anything.

haha, I'm from mich...

I'm from Mich too... I just moved to chicago like a month ago... I live in Troy, and I always work on my car with my two boys. Been missing them since I came to Chicago. Both have Subaru's, one has a 93 LS which is being converted to a JDM WRX (the handling is crazy). The other has a 2003 WRX. We should def meet up next time I go back, it'd be a lot of fun.

i got prices from anywhere between $150 and $200 for window tint. go with a company that has been around a while and offer a lifetime warranty.

Hey fubarlphie, you thinking about getting any springs? I really need to put some on my car, the last Celi meet we had my car looked a foot taller than the lowered ones, never bothered me till then.

Wait for a group buy. I got tein springs for 150 shipped which lowers 1.5 in all around. I can't wait to get these on although i may need some help. I have air tools and everything, just need the extra set of hands and someone knowledgable.

I got some grounding cables to put on my car, and an AEM CAI coming soon... but I drive a Z, so I dunno if you're that interested.

Jesse...

Give Top Speed a call for your Teins... 312-847-3718 They should give you a good price. Tell them you will pay cash!!! There's a discount when you pay cash, know what I mean?

I was going to get some springs after my bonus check gets in sometime in April, I was hoping for the big score I am dying to get an LSD. Looks like we got screwed this year though from the rumors I've heard. I've got a relative in Indiana that I think has a lift in a garage, thought I would just rent the spring compressers. I'll check but I believe he has impact tools too, from what I've read that cuts hours off the spring install.

woot woot

That would be great. An impact wrench would help a lot in taking apart our old springs. However, they can't be used when installing the new ones. Everything has to be tightened to the celica's torque specs...

I will help you guys if you need some help with your celica, since I have done that more than a few times. You can come up here and do it in my garage if you want also.

I am less than a hour and a half from Auburn Hills. I like doing this stuff!

By the way,strut and spring installs are easy.

I've never done a suspension before. In the next few weeks I'm gonna have the chance to do a Tein SS on my car and a Tein HA on a friend's MR2 Turbo.
