Hi all, my struts have seen better days and im thinking of upgrading to supra bilstens. I want to know the height that my soarer will be sitting on. Will it be a legal ride hight? Pics of soarers running bilstens will be great thankyou.

Mine is on supra bilstens. I didn't do the conversion so cant tell you too much. PM Daniel Lee if you want to know more. I'll try and measure the height tonight but it is fairly low. I doubt I could drive over a coke can, (as ive heard this is the legal height). Still not all that low compared to most modified cars. I think its a perfect ride height, but also it is a little stiff for long cruises and big potholes or train tracks! you really feel them!

I had a set of HKS springs on supra bilsteins that were far too low at the front, but got a set of king springs that were perfect.
I had the same experience with King LOW and King STANDARD height JZA80 springs on Supra Bilsteins. The LOWs caused massive scrubbing at the front where the STANDARDs are a good height. You could even run LOWs on the rear and STANDARDs on the front without any problems I reckon.

If you buy the height adjusters that fit the Bilsteins that should do it but mine are pretty close to the top adjustment to get the height for my driveway. I want to lower my rear but with the Bilstein height adjusters springs, the ones recommended by Drew)are too short to take up the slack, so I have to set them high to stop any rattle. I am interested how you decide in the end.
