Just got the car. Been my grandmas since new. Tan on tan. Luxury package. 77k miles. Needs tires and the hubcaps are missing paint so I want to put a set of silver 15x7 Enkei 92s on it.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to lower it. I can get KYB struts/shocks easily. I'm just looking for lowering springs. What's y'alls opinion here? I still want it to ride well.

King springs is an Australian company. They make springs for low springs the corona and celica. which are the same items like coronagtr stated. I found a guy online that could get some for a very good price. Here's a pic of my ride.

Since you're dropping the front, don't forget the RCA's. I raced my Corona without them and it handled great, then I installed them a couple weeks later and I noticed a huge difference. I haven't raced with them yet, but there's one section of freeway near me that the bump steer was completely annoying, I hated driving there. After the RCC's, that section of freeway is nothing now. I'm not being pulled all over the place by uneven pavement and patches like before.

Teaser! We had some complications with the front suspension so it isn't as low as the rear and looks kinda dumb. I'm working on a solution right now.

Thanks! It looks like we are going to be converting the front suspension to s13 as it is not too hard. That is going to open up a ton of possibilities for front coilovers. Its embarrassing to be driving this car reverse rake, but it isn't too bad. I still have to get the exhaust made, try and find chrome bumpers, find a oil cooler that will work, 5 speed swap it.

In other news, I finally got my Serial Nine kit for my mx83 cressida! Pictures of that soon

Looks good, I'm assuming that you rolled the fenders? No pull needed?
