    I loved the drop on my Eibach's. 1" rear, 1.5" front. Only slightly stiffer than stock, and the perfect stance, in my opinion.
    A great balance of sport and comfort for a daily.

    So I sold my house and moved in with my dad out in the country. Didn't want to be rushed to find another house and my elderly dad is in pretty poor health so need to tend to him a little bit. Anyway, I made a little money on the house so I spent about $700 of it on the supra today. Bought some stuff online so waiting for it to be delivered. I'll share more when I get those parts. That amount was just the tip of the iceberg too. I'm about to drop the insurance on it since it'll be in pieces most of this winter.

    Well yesterday I finally had some time to get productive with the Supra. I'm still waiting on all my bushings to arrive before I drop the rear subframe and replace them all. I bought a shop press to push out all the old shit. Anyway yesterday I changed the plugs and wires. Also changed out the idler pulley with a new OEM one. My Lamp Failure Sensor has crapped out on me so I did the delete option till I can get the box fixed. I then installed a new head unit with bluetooth for some better sounding audio. Last but definetly not least, I put the MKIV TT wheels that I bought a while back on.



    Here the Pioneer head unit. Nothing fancy but it does sound better than the later model oem toyota radio that was in it.



    And if you haven't looked in the "other cars" forum in a while, I bought this a couple of weeks ago.
