Springs...

I dont have much money so i cant get coil overs..


i want to get springs so which should i get,this is what i want..

They have to be stiff so that when i hit a pot hole or a sumkind of bump . i wont scrap my bumper.

I dont want to be bouncing when im driving like a virgin riding her frist dick.

I just want sumthing that will be cheap and wont realy affect my ride other then make lower. about 1.5 drop im looking for...

Progress! 1.6 front 1.8, real clean. You can barely notice TRD if you dont have 18"s

I have Tanabe GF210 (grip feel, not to be mixed up with DF or NF), they would work great for you 1.5" drop and they are the stiffest springs tanabe makes other than whats on there coilovers.

I love Hotchkis, that's what i ordered, the full suspension kit with struts, shocks, coilovers, front and rear sway bars, front strut bar, rear camber links, all that good stuff, but it's kinda expensive... $2200. but their coilovers are awesome!

Anybody know if I use the TRD springs and struts, will I need a camber kit? I bought the tanabe DF210 springs, and haven't put them on yet. I decided I needed to get new struts too. So I bought the TRD set (with springs) and am debating whether to use the tanabe springs or the TRD springs. I get the impression that I would need a camber kit with the tanabes but not the TRD springs. I'm curious what the more experienced folks here have to say about the camber kit and the tanabes versus the TRD springs in general.

if there are springs stiff enuff to save ur bumper..then ur ride won't be smooth at all..bounciness is just part of the package when you want lowered stiffer springs. i'd recommend TRD springs because they feel smooth as stock..but they're not stiff...the only reason it saves ur bumper is because it's only a 1" drop..good luck!
