I can't wait to see pics because I don't want a kit, but I do want 17" rims so it'll be nice to see how it turns out for you (considering we have the same color, too) grin

Do I really need to pay to have somone install TRD lowering springs? I have never done it before, and wouldnt mind trying, if I knew it was easy with the right tools. I am not extremly mechanically inclined, but have somone who is that could help.

Is it possible?

IF you have all the tools (make sure you have a spring compressor before you start!), and IF you have someone who knows what he is doing help, then I'd say go for it..

The ride is kinda harsh, but that is due to 35 series tires and stock shocks also. I havent scraped yet because I am very causious going over bumbs.
