    I've had others contact me on my postings to the 2004 YG about the Modellista springs shown at http://www.toyota.co.jp/Showroom/customize...arts/index.html - they are also interested in them.

    I'm thinking that MAYBE it's possible that these are also the springs in use on the UK Prius, since it has an upgraded suspension, but on one of the Prius lists, a UKer said the UK Prius uses a different rear suspension. I find that hard to believe, but you never know. I DO know that the UK Prius supposedly use tender springs in addition to the normal springs.

    I REALLY want to lower my car about an inch, so I'd like to get the sport springs.

    Can anyone help in this? I basically need an email address of a place that will be willing to ship to the US, and can handle emails in English.

    RS-R spring info:

    Looks like about $340 USD for the set. Looks like it would be at least $309USD, since they are Ti2000 springs -

    Got a response back from RS-R USA - they will NOT be importing the springs, and if you grey market any in, they won't be warrantied.

    I've GOT to find a relatively cheap way of getting proper lowering springs on this car! The shipping that a couple of individuals have quoted from Japan is insane, almost $200!
