i just got the tein h-techs and tokico combo and it rides very nice just a tad bit stiffer than stock, to adjust just pop trunk or hood and use screw driver to what ever setting. oh yeah and i also put in shorter endlinks and camber kit

Do yourself a favor and invest in aftermarcket shocks. I just ordered the illuminas and they should be arriving in a few days. I can't wait. I had kyb agx's on my celica gt-s and the difference they made was simply amazing. Shocks are probably one of the best upgrades you can do. I have 20,000 miles with just eibach springs and the stock shocks are totally gone. The car is riding and handeling like crap although when I had first put the springs on it was ok. I'd say you can only use the stock shocks for about 10 to 15k miles before you see a big decrease in performance. As far as adjusting the front illuminas, all you do is pop the hood and use a small screwdriver to choose an adjustment between 1 and 5. I don't know how easy it will be to get to the backs though. It was a pain to do the backs on my celica. Either way get the shocks and I promise you will not be dissapointed.

If they are like my AGX's were then 1 will be pretty soft (very close to stock) and 5 you will feel every crack in the road. The thing people don't understand is that the stiff is a good stiff. The car will feel much more in control and solid. It will just make your call feel like it communicates much better. With just springs the car feels floaty and wallowy while still being harsh and stiff. With struts your car will not have the floaty feeling. It will be firm but totally controlled and confidence ispiring. Just get em and you too will see the light my friend.

Setting 3 is the best overall for me. I have eibach springs also. I have yet to try setting 5(stiffest), right now the car is on 4 and its a very firm ride, great handling. I've found setting 3 to be a perfect set up.

we have the hotchkiss lowering springs and sway bars and noticed a huge differnce allready. we at first didnt have the money for coil overs or anything so been doing suspension lil' by lil'.

looking into these cause we like to really be able to run the corners hard at times. Heck with just the TVS Hotchkiss system we managed to lift the rear wheel in a cornor and it fealt pretty dang stable.

Then again the stock srt set up fealt really good to us mostly cuase we came from a hyundai station wagon then into a sxt neon and we drove the heck out of those LOL

They sound like the way to go if you get a spring and cant afford coilovers. I think JohnL sold me on them with eibachs, I just don't feel like dumping that much into coilovers, no matter how much I try to convince myself I should! I too would like to know how easy it is to adjust the rear struts.
