    aren't those the ones that leave ur car higher than lowering springs? (even at lowest settings)

    Complete garbage, dont waste your money on it. The front will look OEM height. Only the rear will be slammed.

    Those aren't coilovers, just adjustable springs.

    Sleeves wont lower the corolla... there just no room in the front. You need to shorten the length of the strut.

    well that all depends on the type of strut you are running, with koni or tokico it will lower it fine. But i recommend full coilovers

    Youll spend more on replacing struts over the period of a coilovers life span.

    Yeah someone fixed it. It said coiover. Although it's not exactly fixed, that space shouldn't be there.

    i have had the dropzones, sprint springs and now i am on ground controls. spend the money, buy the ground controls. sooooooooooooooo much better. if you search ground control corolla on ebay you will find them going for much less than the 400+ shipping price. i snagged my brand new set, in box for 270 shipped. next up is bushings, sways and konis.

    Adjustable springs will work with adjustable shocks, the fail happens when people cheap out and put adjustable springs on stock shocks.
