    Very nice! Red taillights look good on BP too.

    Looks good!

    How many inches was the drop and how is the ride feel?

    The drop was 1.2" in the front and 0.8" in the back.
    The ride is definitely has a much tighter feel compared to stock. Lower stance, less body roll. Hard to tell how much the springs alone helped out handling-- I also had a rear sway bar and a front strut tower brace put in within the same week. Overall the car handles much better.

    Thanks for posting up your results.

    I just purchased a Pro-Kit and KYB struts for my GenII. I'm excited to get rid of excess wheel gap and body roll.

    I got the Eibach pro-kit from tirerack.com for about $230 shipped. They had to special order 'em because they didn't have a set in-stock for the Prius. Someone else posted on here that you can get them for about $200 shipped (unfortunately, mine were already on their way to the shop).

    I got them installed at a local shop for $200.

    Only 0.8" in the rear ? It looks lower, more like 1.2" in the rear too. I heard that the Eibach indeed are 1.2" drop front and rear even the description says 0.8" Have you measured the height before and after?

    Thanks for the pics :)

    No, I forgot to. I should've. Currently the rear sits 650mm (25.6 inches) from the rear bottom-center of the wheel to the rear fender. You can check it with your stock height.

    Did you have to do a new alignment after the install?

    Yes, drive 500 miles or so to let the springs "settle" and then get an alignment.

    I got the Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs for $200 shipped from AutoAnything with the use of a 10% off coupon and free shipping (advertised on their site).

    I'll be getting mine installed this week.
