well a couple of months ago. but ive been browsing this forum over a year now. i was gonna buy a wrx but since the promotion i bought an sti. any advice to the new purchase. looking to upgrade suspension
i use to working on toyotas. my family is a toyota family. i decided to break away from toyotas this time. my first car was a 84 celica gts. then i upgraded to 2001 celica gts. now i have the sti. from $700 car to a $25000 car to a $36000 car. the sti was my first true purchase.(under my name and my bills).
both celicas i shared the bills with my parents. i still have both old cars by the way. could not get the courage to sell them.
quite an upgrade between the three. although im still not use to the understeer the STI has compared to my 01 celica gts. the radius on the celica is unmatchable to any car. it goes where you wanna go. and even though its an FF and handled like an FR. it was really easy to swing the back end. was there, just not the power i was looking for. but it was pretty good for an NA.

had an exhaust but it was too heavy, and brought too much attention so went back to stock.
right now i want to upgrade the suspension with the STI
but im afraid of devaluing the car. i waited 4 years before i change the suspension on the celica because of that. i know when lowering the car you put more stress on the chassis of the car giving it more NVH will eventually decrease the life of other thinks on the car because of vibration. im just wondering how much of an effect on the cars life it would have if i upgraded the suspension? keep in mind i like stiff suspensions.
