Suspension: Eibach Pro Kit or Eibach Sportline or TRD

I'm looking to lower my car without having the worry of my wheels tilting inward from the top.

I'm a new member and I hope someone can help me. Which is better to get for my suspension:

1) Eibach Pro Springs
2) Eibach Sportline Springs
3) TRD Springs

And what Brand of Shoks:

1) TRD
2) KONI
2) KYB

Sorry I don't have an idea, they all look good to me and these are just some suggestions made by some friends. Basically what i wanna know is which combo is best that will close the gap, give the best handling, etc WITHOUT having to buy extra parts to get the wheels straight again cause I lowered it too much.

So I Should stay away from TRD and it seems the popular shock are KYB AGX and Tein S or Hotchkis springs?

TRD springs lower your car about an inch.

a lot of people go with the Tein S-Tech and KYB AGX combo thumbsup which i will also follow smile

depends on if you want to put a kit on it. If you want a low kit like the veilside ffgt use TRD springs, for another type of kit not as low or lip kits get tien s-techs springs (1 1/4 inch drop) thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup

the drop from sportlines is too much for a shock to last as long as with other springs...

i have sportlines though and i love em.

so with a veilside kit TRD springs would be better? I want to lower my car, I have 18's and the car looks like it has too much space, but I dont really want to lower the car because the front is real low, or maybe i just need to learn how to drive with a kit
