Default Adjustable Suspension Kits?

I recently got a set of lightly used Tokico Illumina 2 shocks and would like to put an adjustable suspension kit on. I found some that are drop kits, which is probably what I will end up doing anyway, but it'd be nice to have them adjustable. I also don't want to spend all my money
So does anyone know about any kits available for a 1986.5?
Thanks!

no kit to my knowledge

so you would have to find an oem system off a supra, but its probably not worth the trouble

So lowering springs are pretty much the best option. Here's a couple that I found:

D2 Racing
http://www.vexmotorsports.com/D2-Rac...92_p_4954.html

B&G
http://www.autoanything.com/suspensi....aspx?kc=ffsku

And then of course there's the Tein and Eibach sets that are a little bit more pricey. The D2 are the best price it seems, and the lowest drop. May be too low, and cheap can screw you in the end. Anybody got some advice?

Also, this will increase handling quite a bit yes? Lower shocks=tighter shocks=tighter stearing. Thats what I'm aiming for, not really appearance, I could care less about how low it is if it tightens the handling.

Thanks!

Yes lowering springs will give you better handling. Personally I use the Eibachs on mine with ST Swaybays that help alot. The eibachs aren't
that expensive, you should be able to get them on autoanything.com for ablout 240 shipped. If you buy swaybars make sure you get new links for them. Also if you are planning to do it yourself be prepared for 2 days at least to do it right and soak ever bolt with pb blasted the night before.

w/e happened to full on coilover kits? Sure it's some extra money, but they're an option. Megan (not bad), Tein (expensive), and Ksport (suprisingly nice) make em for the MKIII.

Possible 2jz lower block swap in the works if I can't rebuild the 1j. So troublesome.

Yea that'd be great if I had an extra $1000 to spend, but I'm in high school and I dont want to spend more money on the suspension for my car then my car itself And I already have good shocks, I just want lower springs, and $200 isn't bad.

So I'll probably be going with those Ebaichs with the 1.5 inch drop because that would be just about perfect for what I want.
