      Randy,

      I did not know the suspension on Prius V is different. I'm pretty happy with the Tanabe NF210 Max comfort springs. They dropped the car without affecting the ride. It is a little bit stiffer now but no to the point to affect a smooth ride. The car went down only 1.0" in the front and 1.1" in the back. After the installation, the car did not even need any alignment at all. My rims are Momo New 17" with Michelin Primacy MXM 4 LRR, which helps a lot on having a better handling and a smooth ride. In overall I was looking to lower my car to reduce the gap created by the new set of wheels without sacrificing the ride and the Tanabe NF210 Max comfort springs did it.

        Charlie - I just had the Tanabe folks put on the Sustec S-OC coilovers on my v. So far so good. I do have to adjust my driving style now that it is lower.

      Yes, i lowered the next day (bought the car 6PM, lowered next morning @8 AM.lol). Btw, Im using B&G lowering kit, 1.2"@front, 1.5" @rear. I took it to B&G dealer in miramar, cost me $300 installed (labor and part).

      I didn't but I'd be interested in possibly doing it in the future. Let me know if you find anything. Thanks
