    does anyone know if trd is by chance going to come out with coilovers, should i wait and see, or go ahead and just get the tein coilovers...? also, will this void any warrenty?
    i don-t think trd is coming out with coilovers. they haven-t came out with any for a long time.
    Go Tein all the way. I personally don-t have a scion yet, but my buddy put tein basic coilovers on his tC. All i can say is its worth every penny. It rides so smooth and handles like a dream. Less body roll and better handling. When i get my tC this week, thats one of the first thing I-m buying. I am also getting them for my project Honda.
    my brother has the tein SS coilovers on his wrx and my friend has them on his evo and they are awesome coilovers. defiantely worth the money. i wouldnt consider anything else.
    TRD does make coil-overs for a celica. so i guess i wont be long untill they come out with a set for the tc
    Tein all the way.... You get what you pay for! My tChttps://home.comcast.net/~greddo42/stuff/scionlow.jpg
    i have the Tein Super Street Dampeners with Pillow Ball mounts and the car handles very well.. i used to have trd springs, and i used to have s-techs.. all in all, ive spent a lot on suspension, and im really happy with the coilovers..

    Whats the difference handling wise between the SS coil overs and the Stechs?
    The S-Tech Spring rates are 200lbs/in front and 340lbs/in rear. The SS spring rates are 390lbs/in front and 560lbs/in rear. That-s going to translate into a car whose suspension deflects less so it will roll less during cornering.You can-t run a high spring rate on the stock shocks because they weren-t valved to handle it. The SS on the other hand are valved to handle the higher spring rate, plus they come with adjustable dampening to tweak the ride and handling even more.The ride might be a bit rougher, but as long as the damper can keep up with the spring rate, it shouldn-t be harsh. I-m sure that S-Techs with blown OEM struts would ride a whole lot worst and never handle as well.In addition to this, you can-t really drop a car too much on OEM struts because you start running out of travel. The damper bodies on the SS are shorter, so therefore the car can be lower without having to worry about having limited travel.
    i have the tein basics and i love em. the fronts are set to teins recommend +20mm from max drop. the rear is set about a +10mm from max drop. the ride is great. you can definitely feel the road.
