linear means the front will have a different ride height than the rears while progressive is the same all around

When do you start needing cambers? Like if you dropped it 2inches would you need them

no, unless your going to the ground, the aftermarket springs available for the corolla wont need a camber kit at all

correct me if i'm wrong... but i don't think that's right... I always though that linear spring rates meant that the space between the coils were equal. so they had a specific spring rate regardless of degree of compressed. with progressive spring rates, the space between the coils vary, and thus will have variable spring rates for different degrees of compression. in other words, the spring rates will progressively become more stiff when becoming more compressed.

Pretty much. People would recommend buying aftermarket shocks with the aftermarket springs. something like tokico blues / koni yellows

can't really say much for shock/spring setups since i never got the chance to experiment with them. i went straight for the coilovers (tein ss) haha. maybe somebody else can chime in here?

tokico blues are a straight swap with your regular shocks. only driven a car with the setup of tokico blues and s-techs after i installed it, not bad shocks, i'll be picking them up when my shocks go

as for koni yellow, you'll get the rear shocks installed with no problem, only different is that you'll only get a shock cartridge for the fronts, you'll have to modify your original struts in order to install the cartridges in, the upside of the konis is the lifetime warranty and adjustability of settings

^ I think they're going by the actual manufacturers price from their websites, cuz I know you can find tein Stechs for about 140 on eBay.

the thing is a 2 inch drop for corolla s/le/ce is not a 2 inc drop for corolla xrs.

i own a corolla xrs and the corolla xrs is already a .5 - 1 inch drop already compare to ce/le/s models.
