3rd Generation Suspension

Hi guys, I have 1994 Toyota Camry V6 le. I'm wondering if anybody has used Gabriel shocks with H&R or Vogtland springs. What I want is a stiff ride, but not so much that I feel every bump in the road. Thanks for the help

I would save up for tokico blues. They will ride much better than oem-spec replacements.

Not to hyjack this, but what does much better mean? I'm interested, not being critical. I'm thinking this might mean a little firmer impact resistance, without being harsh. Better rebound control. (less bouncy).

Is that the general thing your getting at with the Tokico blues?

Paired with lowering springs, they're smooth and handle bumps and dips really well.

Sunday I installed tanabe lowering springs on my friend's ES. The rear struts(Gabriel) are about year old so we reused them, and he got tokicos for the front. The difference is night and day between the struts. Tokicos are very fluid when dampening, maintaining a luxurious ride. The rear struts are definitely more bouncy and rebound control is much more harsh. He'll be getting tokicos for the rear asap.

Sorry I haven't replied, been busy. I have decided to go with Tockio blues shocks, but which of the springs I mentioned is the best. Would like to hear your guys' opinions or suggestions on other springs. Thanks for the help.

I'm very pleased with my H&R sport springs.
