    I twatted a huge fucking pothole/moon crater and have snapped two front coil springs. I have 235 tyres on an 8 inch rim, if I fit some tein lowering springs (37mm drop) do you reckon they'll rub?

    is there a way to find out before hand?

    car is celica gt-four 1995 (st205)

    Depends on the offset but they shouldn't rub if you don't go too low.

    You on stock shocks? If yes then you'll run into problems a few months down the line with the dampers. They weren't designed to take the shorter springs, even if they're firmer, there's a good chance you'll do some damage to 'em.

    Best combo for lowering on a budget is to get some Koni Yellow shocks with Ground Control springs. Do some googling and you'll see tons of good reviews. Probably expect a 30mm drop, should be fine with your wheels.

    Not worried about that. standard shocks are kybs and will take the teins no probs, just haven't heard of anyone doing it with 235 rubber
