Hello from BC Canada
« on: Nov 20, 2018, 08:43:12 pm »
Hey all, new here to this forum. Been a member of a few others for a while. Needed a more active forum and this one seems pretty up to date! I am the proud owner of a 94 Celica GT-S currently, part owner of an 87 AE86, former owner of 13 FR-S, 91 MR-2 turbo, 91 Celica GT-S, 93 Celica GT-S, another 91 Celica GT-S, and another 94 Celica GT-S. One day I'll have my Supra TT I hope.

Lately I've been having issues with parts for my 94 Celica. Tried to swap some lowering springs in but both sets I've received have not fit the car's struts so there's something weird going on. I don't know if the GT-S is a Canadian spec and it's different but information on this car is not easy to come by online. Getting pretty tired of shipping back parts though. I might just have to go and purchase new strut/spring combo. Other plans include paint, rust repair, LED light swap (I want to do all bulbs in the car), manual swap eventually if I can find the parts, and general refresh of things like bushings etc.

Great to be here!

Welcome! You seem to have quite the collection of 5th and 6th gens, my goodness. Looking forward to seeing the progress on your car!! Regarding suspension, often times there just aren't parts available for our cars, so making your own parts is something you may have to look into.

Little tidbit here, I came across another coilover suspension company on Instagram, they seem to have a kit available for 6g Celicas:
