TRD springs pictures...where?

hey guys, i've done a search and i can't seem to find a really good pic at how the drop looks on our cars. i saw ONE in the install section but i was hoping to find a couple with diffrent wheel types. if you guys know where i could see some with some really good pics or if you happpen to own some and would post them up that would be most appreciated. i'm planning to get some @ etoyota.com for 160 (whoohooo)! plus i get the install for free. this month i'm getting the s2000 antenna, mtec lights and hopefully the springs!...i know that didn't pertain to the question but i'm just really excited about my future mods. thumbsup

wow, quick reply haha, handles great, definitely more stable on turns over stock, still not "race" stiff but it's a good compromise imo, for performance handling versus street comfort... on relatively smooth roads it rides as smooth as stock...

cool! i'm definatley sold already just wondering how much you liked them. where did you get them installed? i was trying to get ones used for cheap but it looks like i might try etoyotas.com for 175...know anyone who might want to part with their springs?

i did the install myself with a friend, it took WAY~ longer than needed cause we didn't have the right allen wrench on us for the rears, but on avergae it can be done by yourself in 3-4 hours...

as for the purchase, i bought the set springs and struts at westco toyota

cool! though i wouldn't want to try to do it by myself. i'm an idiot when it comes to cars...hell i can't even do an oil change. ha,ha i can't imagine even trying to do anything major to my car. i'll be spending the whole day just trying to figure it out. i'll be busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest

i think they look really good with 17's...16s too. they look ok even with 15s (i think alphasubsero had them) as well but really not even close to looking at good as the others. there are some pics over at newcelica.org thumbsup
