I personally like the look of the hotchkis springs, but clearance is tough. The eibach is a little too high though.




17" w/ eibach prokit: 1-1.25" drop









17" w/ hotchkis: 1.375" front drop / 1.875 rear drop

That veilside celica actually looks pretty decent IMO with those 17" rims. Must be because of the profile of the tire. From far you can't really notice the tires much because of the wheel well area being too dark. Looks a lot better than what I suspected 17's on vs to look like though.

dont settle for less, because you will regret it. just save up for 18 or 19... believe me it will look so much better with the veilside kit instead of small 17s

Yah I'd kinda like to go bigger than 17's now that I have my kit too but I don't think they look too bad. The kit drops the car a lot more, another 1.5" I'd say, and I'm running a 2" drop on top, a little frustrating at times but just love the look too much to change it.
