Sure. They will fit.

I just wouldn't expect a good ride or for the struts to last very long.

yeah... i've never heard of them. you don't ever want to cheap out on important aspects, because in the end you will only be paying more to fix them.

Not true, I have been using H&Rs on my stock struts for years now (about 12- 13 years to be specific). My stock struts had well over 50k miles on them when the springs were added (now over 165k miles). I have never heard of anyone having problems with doing it, most people swap the struts out at the same time because it is the easiest time to do "preventative" maintenance and swap out the old "tired" struts.

The difference being H&R vs. these SSI springs that I've never heard of. Stock struts with quality springs and no more than a 2" drop should be just fine. Lesser quality springs, or a more extreme drop will usually blow them out.

Never trust springs that say they cover such a broad spectrum of vehicles. These claim to be good for 7 different models all with different curb weights.
Save your money, if you can afford these than just a little bit more saving will get you a quality set like Eibach or H&R.

my struts are nearly brand new, i just put them on maybe 1000 miles ago..and i actually want coilovers, they are easier to work with.

K-sport is the way to go then, they're one of I think two brands that offer coil overs for non Alltrac Celicas. I think there's another brand or two out there...

D2 is another also.

$920 shipped i think Ciento said.

Megan Racing also makes a set.

You can also make a set using Konis and Ground Control sleeve kits. That was one of the more popular methods before off the shelf kits became available.

H&R's for the win. Not adjustable but once you drive with them you won't want to.
