    Just ordered some Tein Htechs. Pretty excited and hope they get here by the end of the week so I can install them this weekend. It'll be the first major mod for the car. I'll post a DIY if I remember to take photos during the process haha

    Post pics if you have them installed already because I couldn't find much on how they look post drop. Tanabes dropped too little in the front for my tastes.

    Haha yeah I picked up my car this past Sat. I don't have the funds for wheel yet though. I'm getting my tint done tomorrow and I'm also spraying the tails red with smoked backup signals.

    Are you planning to install with OEM struts/shocks? Are there any performance oriented struts/shocks available? Or a complete coilover system? Such as Tein Flex or KW Variant II.

    ^^ I don't plan on upgrading my shocks/struts because these are really just a stepping stone until I have the funds to get either tanabe or tein coilovers. Both tanabe and tein make full coilover systems for our car. The only performance oriented struts I can think of are the trd ones.

    I decided to get these instead of the Tanabe DF210's. Ordered today on lunch, they're shipping out in the morning. Can't wait :D

    ^^ Nice. I chose these over the Tanabes because the rates were a bit stiffer plus the drop in the rear wasn't as much as I do carry heavy things from time to time and I'm moving from Socal to Norcal for school at the end of the summer.

    edit: Josh and Fusion, just curious to where you guys ordered your springs from. I ordered from hipowermotorsports and its being drop shipped from Tein but I haven't received any shipping details other than it was suppose to go out yesterday. I live about 45 mins from Tein and if they were sent yesterday, I would of had them today.

    Oh man that looks good. That's before they settle too. What are the specs on your wheels?

    Looks great!
    Did you use just springs or coilovers?
    How much did it lower the car?

    ^^ He has H Techs. They drop 1.4f and 1.5r. I hope to have mine in the next few days as they should have shipped from Tein yesterday.

    I got mine for 136 shipped from hipowermotorsports. I'm still waiting to receive my parts, however its only been 4 days since I order. I'm just itching to get the car lowered already. haha

    Enkei PF01 18X7.5, +38, 215/40/18

    A wheel even lighter than the RPF1

    That's awesome. I love the look of RPF1s so that's what I'll be ordering when I save up enough money. I'll be going 17x8 +35 with a 215/40 tire. I'm hoping there will be more coilover options though soon as I want to do a little Hellaflush styling with the Pri.

    Judging by the pics, I'm probably going to be dissapointed. I had Eibach's on my 05 and they dropped *much* more.
