I just did this myself, and all you need is a jack and appropriate tools (jack stands help a lot also, but aren't a must).

You don't have to buy any other parts when you buy the 2" drop?

People/companies will tell you that you have to buy an alignment kit, but you don't. The camber can be adjusted accordingly with stock parts.

The kit is just the springs themselves. You will need a spring compressor along with the appropriate tools...ratchet, sockets, torque wrench, wrenches, etc.

Took me like 2 hours per wheel cause I never did anything like this before.

eek

I put the Pro kit on my GT and the rear tires are deff in need of a camber kit. I took it to a Toyota dealer and couldn't alight correctly with out a camber kit. Eibach sells one and its 25 bucks which is well worth it in the long run when your tires start to wear. The model number is 5.81270k

I actually helped my mechanic align both front and rear wheels, and the proper camber was able to be acheived without a camber kit. And as far as I know, the GT and GTS share the same suspension in the rear.

TRD springs = Eibach Prokit (in RED & stamped "TRD")

The suspension for GT and GTS are exactly the same...
