Hello there! Hope youíre doing well. I already brought this up to the FB group, but figured Iíd ask it here if there was possibly a different audience/knowledge base. What are our options in the current day (2020) for performance shock absorbers for the celica. The reason I ask is, Iím currently rebuilding a GT to autocross and while it certainly would be easier to just get coilovers, it would also throw me out of my target stock class. I know you can get KONI inserts for the non-sport spec suspension, but I donít know what cartridge size To get, or If they even work for the rest. Iíve also heard whispers that you can use the same era corolla struts, and my question with that would be if you can use Celica top hats, and if the ride height was the same. Any options I missed? Am I an idiot? Aliens? Lemme know, thank you for reading. Have a nice day!

about 5 years ago i was looking at this same thing as well.

there are kyb agx which I know they were only available throught europe KYB dealers. but i know the KYB AGX is not as good as the koni. but even spending money on konis and trd springs, your better off with a bc coilover setup. youd be getting the adjustable top hats and a spring that matches the strut along with adjustable ride height.
