DO IT YOURSELF it's easy as pie. get everything by friday and you should be able to drive it by sunday. if you get those 5 people u drive around to help you it can be done in a day.

It seems like he's having a problem where his car is getting too low, so why are you all suggesting for him to lower his car? I mean I can understand that you guys are suggesting a stiffer suspension so that it doesn't drop as much when it's loaded, but the drop in the suspension setup itself negates that effect. My guess is that the Eibach springs provide a drop, no? And how in the world would cutting his springs help his problem of having too low of a car?

My proposal: RAISE your car and pretend that it's an off road truck or something. :lol: One of my buddies jacked up his ride an extra 20" or so. Wah hahahahahaha Monster Camry!!!

is there any air compressed suspension? i saw a Gen3 camry on cardomain.com with custom air compressed suspension, do they make such a bolt on for the gen 3?
its gonna run you about 2500 +/- 500 depending on installation cost. they do make air struts for camrys. if you ever plan to go with engine performance though, forget about air ride. ive seen those performance air suspensions though, those are badass :thumbup:... too bad they dont make any for camrys :(

put some bigger rubber stoppers on the struts maybe, and if youre going to fit new springs yourself, try not to hack at the front too hard with the strut out... we did that, the halfshaft came out and spend 3 hours finally getting it back in with a big wooden log (smashed it back in).
