    I have found the drops to a few of the different springs like TRD, H Techs, S Techs, Eibach Pro kit but does any one know the drop on the Tanabes, H&R race springs, B&G or any others, I am just about to get my TC so I want to get my springs ordered now so I can drop it the day I get it. Thanks for the help. If this is already posted somewhere I cant find it, a link would be great!
    tanabe df120 - 1.7/2.2 not in production yet, expected by Julytanabe nf210 - 1.1/1.7 same as ^(kinda weird... i thought springs usually drop the front more...)h&r race springs - 2.0/1.6B&G - 1.75/1.75just a tip... try google-ing next time
    Oh i just tried searching this site I know how to search the internet. Thanks for the tip though. I already found 10 different springs. I decided on the Tein S techs because they have the stiffest rates I could find and I saw pics of them installed and liked the drop.
    i agree, i love the drop that the s-techs give, but i dont think i can handle the drop, ill cry if i scrape... i love my car...
    S techs are good. On most cars they give a perfect drop. Not too low and not too high.
    Go H-techs, I-ve decided that is what I-m gonna do soon.H-tech :1.9in Front Drop1.5in Rear DropSupposedly it wont effect your ride as much as S-techs.S-Tech :2.4in Front Drop2.0in Rear DropThese numbers are straight off their websiteAlso guaranteed not to sag more then 5mm (less then 1/4 inch)
    man... i thought i decided on the TRD ones... but now im looking at the B&G springs and thinking about the H and S techs again... this is hard
    I know what you mean, I keep changeing my mind to.Everyone is saying your going to need new shocks after about 20,000 miles or so if you do a drop, so I was thinking of the package mcgeorges offers and you get trd shruts and shocks plus the springs, but if you do that your also going to need swaybars and that comes in a whole different package.Also the TRD springs do a 1.50 drop front and rear and the tein H that I was thinking of getting does a 3.3 front and 3.5 back, with that much drop im really going to need shocks. Also if anyone else has done that much drop how long do the tires last? is there lots of rubbing? I need to compare tein H and TRD and see if either rubs alot or if any?
    tein h-techs dont drop 3.3/3.5... where did you get that from?i dont think you need to worry much about rubbing, i havent heard any forumers complaining about rubbing with trd springs yet, even with 18s.i think i made up my mind for the last time (crosses fingers), im gonna purchase the trd springs and rear sway bar package from mcgeorges. i can worry about shocks later, there arent much bad roads around where i live so i think ill be ok for a while.good luck finding the right springs sml, and when you find them dont forget to share the pics
    also im getting the oem kit so i really cant risk scraping. i saw some pictures of tcs with trd springs and the kit and it looks
    I think im also going with thr TRD springs tCharChar, I really dont plan on racing all I want to do is make the car more sleek and clean looking, plus they will still be under warrenty. If i decide to go with the TRD shocks and struts will this improve the ride? or are they more stiff to handle the springs?

    The ride will be a little stiffer but the car is pretty soft stock anyways. The TRD spring rates are barely stiffer than stock so I doubt it will be a rough ride at all.

    I am pretty sure the TRD springs are 1- front and rear. Also why makes you think you have to get the different swaybars if you get the TRD spring strut combo? The Tein H tech are a 1.9 front and 1.5 rear drop. Here is a link to Tein and it show the drops and spring rates.http://www.tein.com/ti/l52.html
    sml, if you have the money, then i suggest getting the shocks at the same time as the springs. im pretty sure stock shocks can handle the trd springs pretty well, but you might as well save on installation cost and do it at the same time. not to mention the package discount you get from most of the sites. i havent heard anything about needing to replace struts yet though. as for the performance, im not really concerned about the cornering capabilities of my car, but im getting the rear sway bar as well, and that should help stabilize my car.hkstc, the trd springs drop 1.25 all around, and ive heard that they after they settle, the car drops another .2-.3.oh also, with aftermarket shocks, your ride should feel close to stock, the trd shocks are designed to work with the trd springs, so im pretty sure the ride will be very close to how it feels now, if not the same.
