I have TRD with 2" drop. No problem at all. But, if you don't want 2" drop, go with TRD or Eibach Prokit. They about an inch drop.

I think Tony means he has the TRD body kit and a 2" drop. I've got a 2" drop on my car and I like it. Here is how low it sits on the Veilside kit.

i suggest Tein s-tech springs or Hotchkis..just the right amount of drop if you have body kit so you wont scrape all the time

I need a drop that will level my car. You know, where my rear will drop more than the fron to make it level.

hey man,

wow so the hotchkis springs are less of a drop then both the TRD and eibach prokit?! i thought the TRD and eibach prokit were the ones with the least drop at only about an inch in the front and back. so the hotchkis springs are less then a one inch drop?! hmm, definitely let me know what kind of a measurement you got on your drop and thanks about the hotchkis inquiry...

no, no ,no ... hotchkis are more than an inch...they are like 1.5" CID was talking to Spider about which springs level the car even.
Hotchkis springs drop the car more in the back to level the car out that's why i got mine too

Asianjagr sorry dood didn't mean to confuse you, any ways I believe eibach and TRD are the same springs in different wrappers.

Oh and Hotchkis springs give you a 1+7/8s drop in the rear and approx. 1+3/8s in the front.
