    You can get tein H techs and probably roll on stock struts but they're gonna wear out faster
    Tein S tech is not recommended with stock struts. it won't last at all.

    Good luck with that. Even when you buy springs when you go to swap them out you notice your dust covers for the strut are all cut up... gotta go buy those there's another $50
    Then depending on your wheels you gotta get the fenders rolled $60 or do it yourself.

    This thread is another classic example of Corolla people not having money LOLzzzz.

    My advice is to leave it alone until you've got money to spend. If you can't do it right, then don't do anything and ruin it, and then have people laughing at you because it's really obvious you just cheaped out.

    /advice.

    Just get the KYB GR-2s for your year then. They do make them. Those are great shocks. But they are more than $100... just sayin...

    They are cheap for a reason. You get you pay for. If you want it to last longer, spend more money up front and save money in the long run.

    Oh, and coilover "sleeves", not coilovers.
