TRD Springs

how much are the TRD springs?
is it a good price TRD used springs for 120$ shipped with 10K miles on it?
does TRD spring require aftermarket shocks?

I have heard some people tell me that you do not need new shocks with the TRD springs, but I also hear from a lot of people that it is best if you do get the whole shocks and springs package. So I dunno, hopefully someone can just settle this dispute once and for all with raw proof backing up one or the other position.

But wouldn't it save labor fees if you were to get new shocks and springs. One installation instead of waiting for the shocks to be blown just to install something that could have been installed when the springs were installed.

if your struts (not shocks) are relatively new then it's cool. but i had my TRD springs put it when my struts were at 70K...bad idea. in two months they were blown.. thumbsdown

no...i think it would last around 40K...so you have about 1.5 years depending on how much mileage you use a yearthumbsup
