Got my christmas present today... TRD Coilovers!
They were waiting for me at my front door when I got home today. Very nice! The only thing is there are no instruction included?!?! I emailed the shop I ordered them from to try to get them to send me a copy. I was wondering if anyone on here knows where there might be instructions online for them. Will I need a spring compresser for them, or will they just bolt right in?

you dont need a spring compressor... install is cake thumbsup

make sure you have a good socket set and a breaker bar.

it depends are the springs already mounted on the struts? they prolly are so just take off your old springs/struts and replace.

what!? $600 seems impossible. TRD won't sell any part at a resonable price, even though its just a re-badged cheaper aftermarket product.

If you're still having trouble with the install, email the shop who has my TRD coilovers still in the box waiting to be installed. The shop owner is Brent Davison www.bdaudiocreations.com he will help you out if you still need it.
Can't wait to hear how those things handle. Be sure to come back and let us know.

I just got my instructions in the mail today. A spring compressor IS needed in order to reuse a couple support pieces at each corner. I did a cost analysis to see what it would cost to purchase an entire new set of each piece I would need (so I could have two complete suspension setups ready to be bolted in). It would cost roughly $262.58 to get all the 12 parts required. In other words, that's not a cost feasible route. Looks like I'll be renting a compressor.
