TRD or Eibach Sport?

Okay i really like how the eibach sport drop looks, it seems to really level your car out. The TRD drop looks pretty clean as well. I would rather have the eibach sportline because its a bit lower... but i wanna know if it you guys scratch the front a lot (driveways etc)?

I have the action package too and I just installed my TRD springs... I love them, I feel the difference in handling... also the drop is nice. I have a 2 finger gap between the car and the tires all around.

just take things slow and at an angle...and for godsake if you can go another way that doesn't involve a steep incline then do it...lol. i had a TRD drop with no body kit and still scraped just basically due to the fact i was impatient or in a hurry...i sold them because i'm still impatient...but they made the car look/handle great. i still have the TRD struts and rear brace but it doesn't feel the same when i had my springs in. i am planning on TRD sways to get me back into cornering like a mofo again... grin
