    The Megan coilover kit for the Cressida uses a similar rear setup.

    I believe so. BC also makes a set of similar coilovers.

    Yuhp, Megan and BC racing make coilovers that are the same setup with a seperate spring and shock. Gecko also makes them this way.

    T3, Stance, and Ceika(maybe) are a coil over shock setup in the rear.

    what set up do you guys think might be better for street and improved handling and maintain ride quality? Want to lower car with minimal gap not into rolling fenders ect… but want the least rough ride as possible too, I guess everything has a trade off but I guess if you guys have any of these set up you would know best with trying to achieve something close to what I want,

    I am considering the same conversion as you. The one point of concern for coil over shock in the rear is that the top tower mount is already a bit weak on the body so adding stress to it without reinforcement would certainly cause metal fatigue in short order.

    Any serious changes in rear ride height will require a serious camber mod to bring the toe and camber back in line. Our stupid IRS changes geometry dramatically with small ride height changes.

    Keep in mind all rear springs for our car are 1 way adjustable already. The ol angle grinder can adjust them to whatever height you want

    what is the lowest drop you suggest without screwing up the toe and camber?
