I ordered a set from JC Whitney 2 months ago. They had the rear pair but not the front's, they sent me the rears but ST never filled their order for the 2 front springs I need so now I guess I have to fight with JCW for a full refund including shipping since 2 springs wont do me any good. So I guess you can mark those off the list unless you can find someone who has them in stock. I hate this f-ing damned impossible car, sometimes I wish I had a Mustang!!!!!

That's about when I ordered mine. They took my money for both and only sent me confirmation email for one set. I did get one set first then the second a few days later. Can't remember which was which though.

Well that really sucks. :cry: I was just gonna order myself a set of front and rears from JCW and now they dont have them...... I guess I'll have to call them and see what's up with the springs before I try and order them :mad:

Also, don't forget the springs from down under, check with Robert Pina, seems like he can get Dobinsons and maybe Whiteline springs.

They are still almost $40 cheaper at JCW than at NOPI. If I can get them at JCW I am going to still try.

I think the dobbinsons have a huge amount of drop. Too much for my taste anyway. Let me know what you find out about the ST's from JCW maybe if they got a few orders in they would actually make more. Anyone have a way to contact ST directly, I cant seem to find any info on them?

ground control makes coilovers for the front. you just buy them for the same year celica. also, front coilovers for 92-98 honda preludes will work and are available on ebay cheap.

look on ebay. do a search for prelude coilovers. buy a set for a 92-98 prelude. the front springs should be the right spring rate. i dont know the part number for the ground control coilovers. look on their site for 82-85 celica gts.

well, i just listed those as they were the cheapest ones there. i bought a set of drop zone coilovers and they ran me $80 shipped for the whole set of 4 and i sold the rears for $40 so i got my front coilovers for $40. if the spring rates arent right i will shell out $100 for a set of springs the rate i want and its still $60 cheaper then ground control.

Wes, do you already have the Dobinson's springs? Which ones did you get?

William is right, you can use cheap coilover kits with the proper spring rate. It's lots of hassle to do though. Also, you will notice the difference between cheap coilovers and GC when you try to adjust them and they are stuck, or they come loose.

I offer GC, or the cheap ones with the proper spring rate.. Any level of quality that you desire.

No I didnt get them but I think I remember somone posting a picture a while back and it looked really low. The camber was terrible, it looked like all the ricer hondas around here who cut their springs and their fenders get all dented up because ther 30 inch rims are hitting it all over. Maybe I am remembering something else though.
