Just lowered the car
well not now really, but earlier today.
i decided to go with TRD springs cz my city got a lot of messed up driveways and my apartment driveway is horrible already. i just needed it for looks and a bit performance. gotta say it looks damn fine!!! the ride quality doesnt differ much if you driving on soft or a bit bumpy roads, but i noticed a difference when i came on a turn. the steering was just firmer, harder and it felt harder to lose control.
do you think ill have to change my 16,000 miles worn struts later on in a few years? wish me luck on the body kit and hopefully it makes it through my driveway or else no body kit cry

im not sure how long until you need to change the structs, but the TRD springs goes pretty well with stock structs. You car will be lower after the spring settles, but hopefully, you will be able to get a body kit and everything. good luck!

toiletpaper, how many miles would it take for the springs to settle, more than 10K miles? do the springs really settle or the struts just adjust overtime?
