TRD vs. Hotchkis

I was hoping that some of you could weigh in and help out somebody new.

Is the TRD strut/spring set (00602-48000-025) the same as the TRD shock set (00602-48500-200) plus the TRD lowering spring set (00602-48130-015).

Are coilovers too much for a daily driver? If not, which do people prefer, TRD or Hotchkis?

How does the full TRD set (sway bar, strut tower brace, struts, shocks, spring, and/or coilovers) compare with the Hotchkis tvs 1 or tvs 2?

Is the Hotchkis tvs 2 too stiff for a daily driver?

I have a 2004 GTS that is a daily driver. I'd like to improve handling and stick to either TRD or Hotchkis. Right now I have 16's but I plan on updrading to 17's.

i am in the same situation and i think i am going to opt for the hotchkis set and there are different settings on it that you can change for daily riving or all out racing
