just something that i have experienced on my celica 92 gts....i have just changed recently my shocks for kyb gr2 on my sportsline springs....and i gotta say that its really a bad combination...not an amazing setup...so stay away from those springs if ur not going to get the koni yellow shocks or if you are not going to keep the factory shocks wich lasted me quite a few years on the sportsline ....

hope that helps...
later

i'd recommend Koni adjustable shocks on any setup. They're mildly expensive, but absolutely worth it.

I have GR2s and ProKit and like it a lot.

how long have they held up Dave? Does your setup work well with quick directional changes?

The setup has been on the car for about a year, but driven for 10K or so. I love it. I haven't done any autocrossing, but have done my fair share of twisty roads and highway on/off ramps. There is a lot less body roll (both front/back and side/side).

I suspect a larger swaybar in the rear would make me about as happy as I could be with an uprated suspension. I drive my car a LOT on the streets and wouldn't put up with a shitty ride.

are you sure you dont just have KYB... KYB's are shit, the GR 2's are fabulous haha. I have that setup and I noticed a huge difference, however I think Im upgradeing to the Koni's. Roughly How much cdn value though???

does anyone know if dropping a celica with the sportline kit lowers the roll center too much? Can anyone take a pic of their front control arms with their sportlines?
