TRD Coilovers

I am debating between the TRD strut/spring set and the TRD coilover set.

Does anybody here actually have the TRD coilover set?

I was hoping that somebody could tell me how harsh the ride is. TRD tells me that they feel that their coilover set is way too uncomfortable for a daily driver and strongly suggested the strut/spring set instead. I am having trouble finding people who have the coilover set and can confirm this.

As for the TRD strut/spring set, does anybody here have it and really hate it?

The Hotchkis coilovers or just Hotchkis springs?

The Hotchkis coilovers have been discontinued and I've been told that the Hotchkis springs are supposed to cause the stock struts to wear out quickly.

I just got a set of TRD coilovers. They are going on in a matter of days. Just waiting for my torque wrench and coil spring compressor to arrive in the mail. Hopefully within a week they should be on and I'll be able to provide detailed information about them. Look for a new post by me regarding a rating of them.
