I'd go with Eibach and KYB sturts. I've heard that's the best combo you can get and it's just as good as TRD
was made by Eibach. If you don't want the struts your stock ones will work fine. That's is what i'm going for.
As for johnsm: Go for 1.2' you don't want to bad of a ride quaity and you the 1.2 drop will work with you stock sturts. However you need to get some bigger rims
