I plan on drifting my Celica too. I'm going base my setting off of what I've read here.
1984 Celica GT: Sold. I miss it, and want another.
1979 Datsun 280ZX: Garage purgatory. Empty engine bay. VK56 maybe?
2007 Nissan Titan: Sold. Miss the power, not the mpg.
2006 Subaru WRX: Sold. Don't miss it one bit.

everything laid out for the front of the car, is exactly the same between the GTS and the SRA ( gt/st ) cars. For the rear, i would check the supra boards, all i know about the rear of the GTS's is that you get GOBS of negative camber when you lower them...

is energy suspension the only good bushing company for the celicas? the rear bushings might be  discontinued tried kragen, pepboys, ebay and some others seems like they give me a date that they will come and i get a email back that they cant get it. and the guy at ebay sells stuff that he doesnt have o_0

www.pst.com. It may have dashes in it. Just google P-S-T Suspension. They have every bushing for our cars in polygraphite, and 20 year warranty on all bushings.

I have no idea who manufactures the parts, but PST gives a 20 year warranty on their suspension parts, and I don't think Energy Suspension does, but I could be wrong. My entire suspension on my 72 Cutlass, and the Celica is PST, and that includes front & rear stabilizer bars as well. They must be made by different companies, now that I think about it, because a few of the guys here had to modify their front bushings to make them work, and those were purchased from Energy. My PST bushings all fit perfectly, with no issues, or modifications needed.

If the PST sway bar bushings fit perfectly, I might have to look into it..
