gen4(86-89 ?) for the fronts gen5(90-93 ?) for the rears
If this is so then theoritically coilover sleeves designed for the 88 celica should be able to fit on the camry inplace of lowering springs there for giving us adjustable ride height? Am I wrong because if i'm right I'm going to go after a set of sleeves for an 88 celica and put them on the camry.nogard said:I might be the one you are refering to. I had a 1990 V6 auto. I had a set of Eibach lowering springs off my '88 celica. They are a perfect fit in the rear. On the front coils, the top fits perfect, but the bottom is just a hair small, but it will fit and will work. The coil on the driver side didn't seat perfectly straight. So the first time I hit a bump I hear a small pop. It was then seated. I looked everything over after this happened and it was all fine. I put these on the stock shot struts. The car road great, even my 60 some year old mother-in-law said it rode good. With this set up I had about a 2" drop and it made the car level (rear not higher than front). I put at least 40,000 miles on the car after I lowered it, sold it with 201,000, and it is still running around.
I think the springs were pretty stiff, make like that for the celica. The fact that I put them on the V6 wagon with more weight helped lower the wagon more than the celica did. And the extra weight made the wagon ride better. If you have a 4 cyl or a sedan I can't say how it would work out. I also used to load a lot of tools in the back of my car for work, and it never bottomed out. I did trim about 3/4" off all the bump stops.
