Since the CV Boots for my wife car (Camry 1996-4cyl / 115,000miles) are ripped off I decide it's time to replace my suspension system too.
So I decide to go for Bilstein Touring Class - 260$ set of 4 struts - online Bilstein dealer.(I hope those are brand new and not remanufactured.)

Also I will buy new top mounted struts from a Toyota Dealer Online.
So I hop I did the right decision - I am not looking for a sporty looking car.

My question is - what springs I should buy? Any advices are welcomed.
Should I buy the OEM from Toyota or should I go for something else - I need something similar with the standard ones that came with Toyota.
Thank YOU!

toyota springs are the only ones that wont lower the car... why would you buy brand new oem springs when you dont need them though? Im sure theyyl even cost you more than some high quality lowering springs.

Try both a search and looking at the FAQ posted in the general camry section, there is tons of info on suspension setups there:thumbup:

you sugest to keep the old ones ... it should be fine with the old OEM ones?
I was thinking if I replace the Struts its a good ideea to replace the springs too ... but maybe not?!

nahh youll be fine, unless you want to lower it and have a stiffer ride, keep the used factory springs. They may have sagged a small ammount over time, but it isnt worth the money to replace them IMO
