TRD springs.. Those if you don't wanna break your warrenty! With an 05' that would be the ONLY ONLY way to go! My opinion! thumbsup TRD can't go wrong with them! 1" drop on them!

yeah, to not void your warranty on your struts, go with TRD springs. thumbsup

Remember, to keep the warranty, you need Toyota to install the springs, even TRD ones.

Edit. Get your ridiculously oversized wheels and just cut your stock springs in half.


You guys know nothing.

it probably will void the warrantly, in fact that's anything but toyota or TRD parts. if you just get the eibach springs, and say in 3yrs your shocks go wonky, toyota will blame your "aftermarket" parts. it's probably best to do shocks at the same time...
