TRD vs. Hotchkis springs

which one should i get for 18's?

is the front going to be the same hight as stock or is it going to be lower?

how about shocks?...if i get either, do i need to get new shocks any time soon?

depends on what kind of drop you want. hotchkis is a lower drop. TRD is about 1.25" all around while hotchis is 1 3/8 front and 1 7/8 rear.

hotchkis has a much stiffer spring rate, and you would need to get new shocks/struts with it

I'm looking at getting Hotchkis springs and anti-sway bars when the weather here warms up. I like the fact that the Hotchkis drop is more in the rear to level things out a bit.
