go with hotchkis, 1 3/8 in front, 1 7/8 in back, and will still work and look good with 17 or 18 inch rims

these pics were taken the same day. they both have springs in them (TRD). the second pic is a bad pic because of the lighting. bit it should show you stock 15s on TRD spring height...just look at the clearance from the pavement to the front bumper. thumbsup

you should get the Eibach Sportline springs, I think they are the perfect drop.

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

Eibach Sportlines drop will be slightly higher than on the Photoshoped picture.
Drop on the picture can be: rear 3-3.5" and front 2.5-3"...

A 2" drop will look great and no problems on stock wheels even upgrading to a bigger wheel.

I'd suggest TRD, because you can keep it under warranty and you can use the stock struts if you don't have enough money to buy a full suspension.

All brand name Springs comes with a warranty...And if your drop is not lower than a 2" it's not nessasary to change the shocks...

What I meant is that it does not void the warranty on other suspension components, which other brands will do. wink
