got my TRD springs installed

hey guys, i got my TRD springs installed today and they look great! i love the TRD drop, its definitely noticeable in person but not too much so its perfect, pictures of TRD drops dont really do justice but i recommend these to anyone because it makes the car look that much better and there is certain increase in handling

Those might be the bump stops. They are supposed to cut them in half and put in the top part I believe.

The rubber is the spring insulators. I had TRD springs installed and they were left in. I think the spring could rub against the metal and wear it down over time confused

Its likely they forgot to put them back in when putting the new springs in.
