Awesome man-thanks. So he lowered it with some Teins and then put those coilovers on?

Also just noticed his was a Gen 2, when mines a 2.5, would that make that big of a difference? Surely Toyota wouldn't do too much structurally...

Nothing changed suspension wise between the half gens. Spikeyjad showed we, with some modification, have more coilover options than just the teins.

so it's possible to get 3" from just the coilover without a whole new setup?

Im riding lower than that now. I havent posted up in a while. Im running a new setup. Having axle problems though.

There is very little modification required to swap to camry coilovers. Some persuasion with a hammer and some camber bolts are all I needed.

There are a few ways to lower a solara. I still have my 2" drop tein springs laying around...

So, yes... I'm reviving this thread (if possible).

How have those ksports been handling? I'm looking into refreshing my 05's TRD spring + Solara Sport shock combo, but thinking about changing to Sport Suspension (not lowered) if I cannot manage to find a suitable replacement. TRD springs + Solara Sport shocks didn't do it for me.
