So as far as I can tell from the interwebs, springs from fwd 6th gens fit on fwd 5th gens and vice-versa. Any thoughts?

I have a diabolical plan and I'd like to double check b4 I go through with it.

when i was looking up a set of eibach springs for my 1990 celica the guys told me the springs would fit 90-99, not sure how true that is

from what I've seen around here, the 5th and 6th gen suspension parts or entirely interchangable, including full struts, or coilovers...

i have lowering springs that were on a 91 gts on my 94

the 5th gen shock assemblys will bolt on but make the car sit lower, and the camber and caster is way off, so the shocks/ strut hats are not interchangable

the rear hats are

Word, that's exactly what I was hoping as far as the springs go. With struts I'd prob just go with those KYB GR2s that I see most people go for. It's def good to know that I could technically use the 6th gen stuff too though.

I would replace your strut hats with new ones as well... I didn't and now I've got a ton of clunking in the rear...


It probably doesn't help that we drove the Georgia train down to the Dragon the next day.
