I would go with exhaust, only cause I personally don't think TRD springs are low enough. Also depends on budget. I like to buy the expensive stuff first.

127 is not a good price. Install it yourself, it's only 4 bolts and 3 hangers!

you get what you pay for...get the TRD exhaust and have it installed for 35...i did at carson toyota. 125 is insane or just bolt it on yourself. after watching those toyo guys it looked really easy...

TRD Exhaust. Go to Etoytota.com I got mine for 499 and then you just pay the shipping. Find somewhere cheaper to install also a local exhaustp laced bolted it on in 10 minutes for 50 bucks.

It's extremely easy and I would of did it myself it I had a lift but oh well. Just find someplace cheaper to install.

Good Modding rule of thumb: Build from the ground(suspension) up!

lol. I hope you weren't oging to go with whatever majority was. Everyone has their own opinion on modding. This is a perfect example. It all comes down to what you are feeling most. The hardest part about modding a car is deciding what to do first. I am sure you will make the right decision. Good luck.

Why dont you shop around for the exhaust online? Im sure you can get it cheaper somewhere else. As for the install ive heard it is quite easy to do, and that would save you $127.50.
