3 options:

1. CRX/Civic coilovers (ebay)
2. Dobinson lowering springs (talk to George at raptor racing)
3. (my own recent discovery) '82-'95 Cavalier coupe/sedan front springs fit the front, cut about a coil off the bottom (including the wrap at the bottom) should give a decent ride height and sporty feel. For the rears, aerostar springs fit a GT when cut.

 would it be super bouncy like them ghetto civics? with the cavalier springs and aerostar springs? or would it be semi stiff...

I'll let you know how the race car goes, but "bouncy" depends on the shocks not the springs. If you're running high rate springs and stock 25 year old shocks, it's gonna bounce like a mofo. The race car has new (last year) KYB GR-2s up front, and monroe sensa-tracs that were on it when I bought it in the rear.

Been a while since I've looked at this. These guys have some stuff for the corolla, not the best quality, but the price is really attractive.

I got their tension control rods and then had 84GTCOUPE make new cones. Still come out ahead.

So at least from that site you can get, Tension Control Rods, PHB, 4 link for the rear, and possibly traction brackets for the corollas to work on our celicas.

Maybe I'm not using the correct terminology, but with heim joints you need a cone on either side to act as a spacer so the heim joint can move freely.
