If at Toyota for TRD springs, you'll be paying about $500 installed, that's springs and installation. At any other Performance shop, nothing as near as Toyota's price.

Spring will run you around 200 grin
If ur shocks are old (35K plus) you also need shocks, then you can get a shocks/springs combo for around 450 eek
IF you want a crazy drop(more than 2"), you will need coilovers, than you talking around 1200 cry cry cry

Free! Do it yourself. Of course if you have TRD and want the warranty you probably have to get a certified tech to do it.

Here's my thoughts on having toyota install them and thereby keeing a warrenty. In canada I was quoted $700CAD for the springs and installation. Now personally, I Bought my springs for $150US. So call it 225CAD. That means $475 for the install to keep the warrenty. When the $475 would probably buy a new set of struts and shocks down the road if you need it. So don't fool yourself, you are basically buying yourself a new set of struts in order to use their warrenty.

Don't get just springs, get both shocks & springs..otherwise you'll end up regretting it in a year or so.

I'm currently saving up for TRD shock & spring set..can't bloody well wait either. frown smile

Yeah... don't let them rip you off. Toyota wanted $ 600 and a few shops went from $400 to $250. Finally I got a friend of mine to do it for $100. thumbsup

diy if you have basic tools, lift and jacks. rent a spring compressor for $6 or so. learn about your car = more pride + more $$$ for mods thumbsup warranty, smarranty. even abiding by toyota's terms you can still get screwed imho
