Its less slushy for sure, feels better in the corners and overall stays flatter on the road. im comparing it to my old suspension which was 98K and 16 years old. I don't know what these cars feel like when they were new.
i have installed Supra Bilstein struts with the Supra Springs and later with the eibach lowering springs. with the eibach, the car feel much more better, not hard, for me great, much better as with the OEM Supra springs. ok, the car is lower, i have also installed the supra TT swaybars, but the eibach supra springs was are the best. i tested on front with the oem sc and supra springs and different highes of the spring disc. i bought also new KYB Supra TT rear springs. All versions are not near so good as with the eibach springs. the car feels like i would have from beginning with the change to the supra shocks and springs.more balanced suspension, no bumping more. install lowering springs!
here with the supra oem springs
and here with the eibachs
front oem vs eibach
rear oem (KYB) vs eibach
I found a set of eibachs with tokicos for a 96 supra. But doesn't specifie for TT supra. The seller says It doesn't matter and it will fit my 96 SC. Is this true? I really want that 2 inch drop.
I put stock TT springs and shocks on my 97. The rear felt horrible and one side was about a half inch lower than the other. I decided to just purchase brand new rear TT springs and put them on and it made a huge difference. I have since ditched my 18's for a set of OEM 16" chrome wheels correct for the year. With new tires the ride and drivability improved significantly. It was so damn rough over bumps that may car began to rattle a lot in the cabin. I don't have time for rattles. I've decided I'd like to have my luxury ride back so I'm going to put the original Lexus springs back just on the rear. I've got to get new shocks for them first. I will leave the front TT springs on it because I don't want to raise the front end at all. The Lexus springs in the rear will only bring it up about a half inch if that. It's amazing just how sensitive these cars are to any change in the suspension or wheels and my entire front suspension is new. A friend bought my 18's and put on his MKIII Supra and I can't tell a difference in the ride from his 16's.

SO after 2600 miles on the Teins ive decided to go for the gixxer_drew setup. The car looks great but I'm starting to rub more now that things have settled and the back actually sits lower than the front which looks a bit weird.
I read everything i could find about the gixxer_drew setup and decided to go with the "street" setup version with the 500lb spring rate in the front and 325 or something like that in the rear, cant remember. I'm thinking with the lower spring rate, raising the car about an inch, and corner balancing my ride will be much better...its still on the rough side with these Teins but i think thats because its so low.
I pulled the trigger on the parts, just waiting for springs to show up.
Stock TT springs are not the best choice, this was my first setup and i was not very happy! with the eibachs is this perfect. i have also supra TT swaybars with PU bushings installed, the males a perfect suspension, without feels the car little unbalanced.
