Hey wassup normally I tune my Camaro for drifting so most of the companies I see that make springs for Camry's I didn't really hear of. Or I did hear of but just don't really know much about their quality. Anyways I was looking to drop my 92 Camry somewhere around 2" and I was wondering which brand has the best ride comfort? I'm not really looking for a performance handling type drop but more just for looks and ride comfort. I've seen aerospeed, intrax, dropzone, etc. Did a seach but didn't really come up with much. Thanks in advnce.

eibach ive heard has close to stock ride quality, but it lacks a little on drop. still though its a noticeable difference.

i approve of intrax as well. before i got my tokico struts they were very stock-like

H&R makes -40mm springs, will fit on your stock shocks although it's recommended to upgrade those as soon as you can afford it (stock shocks will wear much quicker)

comfort also lies within the choice of tyres/wheels; up to you to find the right balance ;) gl

Personally, i like the vogtlands best. good drop great ride as long as you have tokicos.

Jon, steve has eibach, what did you think of his ride?

steves ride was about perfect. and i could totally tell his car was lowered. besides the loose swaybar bushing clanking around during hard cornering, the car felt great.

I had the KYBs and they just suck. I blew them in less than a year. The tokicos are a much better product.

I was very happy with the way that my H&R and Tokico setup handled:thumbup: But the drop on the H&R's is not much(Only 1.25" drop) I have a set of new sprngs on the way so we'll see how that goes

I have pretty much new 4 month old Monroes struts all around. They should last awhile with lowering springs? Yes or no?

So you had the KYBs with the Vogtland springs?
Or you just had KYBs with stock springs?
I went with KYB because it was my mom's car, and she preferred a more comfy ride, and I heard that Tokico gives a really stiff ride. So that was the reason for KYB.... I did consider Monroe... but they are just too "Buick" ... if you know what i mean.
But if it was my car, I would go for Tokico...

I'm guessing the monroes would be fine for the Eibachs or H&R's but I"m guessing if you put a lower drop then they (the monroes) won't really like it.

I wouldn't worry about blowing the struts as much as the bouncy ride.....

and remember if it bounce's too much, it's not safe either....you could hit a big bump and lose traction



and for the record, I haven't had any problems w/ my kyb+i4 eibach drop even after 2yrs.....

if you want a stockish real low ride then go with dropzone springs and munroe struts

camry, lowering springs and ride comfort don't really belong in the same sentence

Thats correct i did. The tokicos are stiffer but everyone that rides in my car perfers the ride with tokicos cause there is less bouncing around.

Also Monroe units are not so bad the more you drop the more they get stiff since the are progresive valved units.I have had Tokico and they juste never seem to last and Kyb are kinda OEM to me dont even notice a change between new oem's and the kyb's.

when you mentioned KYB + i4 Eibach drop... did you mean you used i4 springs for your V6?
