The tokicos will be fine with stock springs. They will actually last longer if you do not get lowering springs. The struts were designed to fucntion well with stock springs. Only get lowering springs if you want a much stiffer ride and a lowered look. The struts alone will not visibly lower your car at all. Bottom line is no matter what anyone tells you, you don't need lowering springs. I spoke with a guy named Jack at a company called fast track who has supplied many Camrys and Solara's from various forums with suspension mods, and he said that Camrys shouldn't really be lowered that much because of the way the are designed. He said that lowering it past 1.5 in will harm the suspension. He said that I didn't really need to buy springs from him also, but I did it for looks anyways. He explained how the struts on stock springs will make my car handle really well, without lowering springs. The springs wouldn't really make too much of a difference in handling. It might just make the ride slightly harsher. The Tokicos alone will be fine. Only get springs if they're really worn out.
