I would like to drop my car. Things I am considering are as below.
Please tell me what would be the best choice for comfort.
I am dropping the car only for loolk so handeling is not that Important.
I know there are other threads about the subject but just need opinion from ppl who might have one of these setups.
KYB Gas Shocks GR-2+Eibach
KYB Gas Shocks GR-2+Tein S tech
Eibach lowers the car by 1.2 inches at both ends.
Tein S tech lowers by 1.5 FRONT -0.6 REAR.
Using any of these setups, If i have 17" with 215/50/17 will there be any rubbing issues.
will it make any diffrence when I have the car full capacity?
finally is there any other combination of springs and shocks available for around same price?
Thanks for your feedback...
PS: all this is for a 2000 camry

KYBs are a little closer to stock dampening then the tokicos so if ur not lookin for handeling go with thoes. eibach and tein are about the same ride wise i believe, but u have to decide weather u want a raked look or not. the tein are gonna lower the front quite a bit but not the back so that the wheels fit more evenly in the wheel wells. the eibachs are just gonn agive it an even drop. personally i like the tein because it evens out the gap in the wheel wells. i always hated the look of larger gender gaps in the front. u shouldht have any rubbing issues either. i have Sprint springs and they drop 1.8 all around and i dont have any problems.
thans for your opinion.
anyone here has pictures of their cars with these springs.
cant really decide between eibach and Tein.
I have the Eibach pro-kit (1.2" drop all around) with KYB-GR2 Shocks and struts. The setup is nice, the ride isn't too soft or too stiff. I was also thinking about getting 17" rims. By the way, I have a 2000 Camry LE (4 cyl.).
^^^ checked your ride. don't you have any pictures with it lowered?

i'll sell you the springs cheap like $100 its just the shipping im worry about :lol: what would you perfer? UPS Ground? Fedex? ill take some pics of the springs in the box (brand new) if you want

o by the way this is for 97-03 camry 4 cyl not v6's
Oh snap that's a great price for new springs. I would recommend getting Tokico struts if you're wanting a more performance oriented suspension. If you want to maintain a stockish feel, go with the KYB's.
i just checked the shipping rates for UPS Ground its about $50
tell me if $150 shipped sounds reasonable and i will post pics by Thursday night
nevermind lol i just took some pics :lol: even though it says 02+ im 100% sure these will fit 97-03 4 cyl
