Ideally you want to only lower up to 1.5 in to not throw off geometry of the whole suspension and to keep own parts

I've got eibach sportlines with kyb struts. lowers 1.5in. not extremely low but good enough for a daily driver. i got them on ebay for $200 for the springs and $200 for the struts.

You don't need to get struts unless your car bounces a lot already. when installing lowering springs it will cause your stock struts to blow out faster. I'd say if you don't need it yet then don't get new struts unless you plan on doing some heavy track driving. Might as well use up the stock struts.

Woo sends a tingle down my spine everytime you reply subspec, Oh celica god

I'm only really interested in lowering it too make it look better, that's all

Was thinking of getting second hand springs off ebay and then getting a mechanic too do?

Ultimately you get what you pay for. If your not into autox or track/circuit racing then a ebiach setup with some kyb struts will be perfect
