Yes I know where you are coming from. I'm paying more for one front strut than you guys pay for a complete set of fronts and rears.

If the shock bodies have similar overall extended and compressed lengths, then the addition of some helper springs, or even change the springs entirely for longer ones, will allow you to keep the same ride height. The problem with aftermarket coilovers in Australia is that most of them have shorter bodies than the stock shocks and when you jack them right up to get the ride height you want, you run out of droop travel and the springs become un-entrapped.

If you are looking to start doing Rally, you could always try and check on other Rally oriented forums to get an idea what to look for in suspension specifically geared towards Rallycross or full blown Rally. Another good thing to do is contact Yaris T-Sport, hes the only guy on here who downright has built his car for and done Rallycross in his Yaris.

Thanks,
For the Dyno, its all stock. (I will only put a AFE intake and maybe a complete exhaust.)
When I need power, I'll take my other car.
