Should I go TRD or Eibach?

I'm just wondering what kind of springs I should get: TRD or eibach pro kit?
As of right now I Have the kam kit on with Tein S-techs w/stock 16's. I think the drop is a little to much for me as the speed bumps here are a little high and some of the entrances to places are a little steep getting up/down with out scrapping.

I don't know if I should go with Pro kit w/ some after market shocks (suggestions?) or I should just do full TRD. I'm after a smooth ride becuz i'm tired of the bumpy harsh ride right now or that could be due to my wasted shocks. Either way I'm looking for something not so low so that leaves TRD or Pro kit.

Could you guys give me some suggestions? Would i be better off buying pro kit with some aftermarket shocks or Full TRD? thanks for the help...

I saw in the TRD catalog that they offer what they call "Sports Shocks", does anybody know what these shocks are? They not just brand new stock ones right? They make 'em themselves or are they equivalent to some other brand name shocks?

The TRD struts are re-marked KYB GR-2's, and KYB is far less expenisve.

i say keep the teins and get some 18s. i think it would be perfect. because if you get 18s, you will basically raise ur car an inch.

Well yeah but I have seen cars with 18's and TRD like Isaac's and it looks perfect. Plus I want a better ride quality.
