I have to say i agree with damok! Had tein superstreets fitted on my 2001 celica and it was awesome! Never had any trouble with them and had them on the car for 3 years!

Went looking at one with a friend and it had HKS ones (unsure of make), was impressed with the feel of the handling, a bit hard in parts but the car was sitting on the wheels, But then again we were on the main portlaoise road :? .. Over all was impressed with the HKS coilovers but all round, Tein superstreets any day MooMoo.
