Nope. Just buy st185 coilovers. There are a few companies that make them and a vendor here that sells D2 and Megans.

The ST202 won't fit on your the st185 chassis. The rear shocks are different height due to the driveaxles back there.

I fitted a set of st182 coilovers to my '89 GTS. I personally like them. They're the lower cost option (compared to D2 IMO), were a direct fit (as are others), and look nice (IMO). Plus they came with the camber/caster or whatever it is plate on the top of the fronts already. Also, I basically stole mine :)

I know the fronts will probably fit. But even the Rears from a 94-99 Celica GT/ST will not fit the Rear ST205 suspension. So I would assume that its the same.

get some st185 ones and megans if you can... i have a full set on my gt-four and the difference in the ride is insane...i had some Jspeed before (came with the car in Japan-RHD) which were fully ajustable too but Megans are definetaly a good choice

On your car how do you have them set? Are they back breakingly stiff or real bouncy?
