TRD vs. TEIN vs. any other
alright guys i know this has been talked about before im sure but im starting to throw things up in the air again. i want to lower the celi soon and was going to go with TRD springs. but i have heard TEIN and some others are just as good and will lower it a little more too. so my question is whats my best choice when looking for a drop around 1.4(ish) - 2 inches and has the best ride overall quality overall? also if you could list the name/price of the product you recommend. i can get TRD springs for 150, TEINs for about the same. someone help a bro out here. thanks in advance thumbsup

it depends what type of driving you do, if your like my friends and go touring i would get tiens, but if your a daily driver just get TRD... because tiens are for main extreme drivers... although i do have TRD springs i wished tiens came otu with coilovers last years, i would of bought that instead... thumbsup
