Tanabe Springs?!

Looking at Tanabe GF210 springs, they get good reviews but I'm not sure. Its these or TRD springs.

Don't know which to go for.

Really you need to decide if you want a 2" or 1" drop then you make your decsion...
Tanabe is 2", and very noticable.
TRD is 1", but not as noticable.
With either set you will see and feel the diffrence. Any true Tuner can tell when a car is dropped just by looking at someones ride.

I don't give a damn what someone, oh sorry "true tuner" thinks of the drop. I'm talking about Performance not looks, oh and BTW double check your model numbers, Tanabe GF210 1.5" drop, TRD 1.2" drop.

So if you get my point you will see that I don't want to slam the car. I want a nice firm ride but don't want sore kidneys when the ride is over. 1.5" is as low as I'm willing to go, that is why I've been looking at Tein S.Tech, Eibach ProKit, Tanabe GF210, and TRD for springs.

Tein S.Tech = 1.4 drop
Tanabe GF210 = 1.5 drop
Eibach ProKit = 1.2 drop
TRD springs = 1.2 drop

all very close, all get good reivews, all around the same price (well eibach is up there), hard to decide. What to do?

Nope sorry dude your wrong. Tanabe is a 2" drop. Click Here

Check your stats before you go and flame people, like you always seem to do. And TRD starts at a 1" drop then settles to a 1.2" drop.

Edit: And for your information I plan on getting TRD because like spatz says below, the dealerships won't give you shit.

Gen7fan...

Do you know any sites that have those springs for cheap, or are you just buying them from eBay?

Click Here for the Tanabes <---- $156 is not bad at all for springs. Especially a reputable company like Tanabe.

i got the DF210 for $125 @ suprastore.com NOT sure if they have your GF210's but i had to make a decision:
1)not so low drop or
2)slammed drop
these DF210's are sorta in between because it didn't make my stock body look all ghetto like those slammed *ahem* hondas. and with my KYB's, Performance is great too.
