    I was pretty stoked to hear that Blitz had a coilover set up for 2016+ Prius. Luckily enough ran into an old friend that works for Blitz North America. He was able to offer the ZZR coilovers to me which I gladly accepted. I was told Blitz would be test fitting the suspension for the US model to make sure there were no differences between the JDM model. They also would be adding instructional pics to their US website from the install since the only instructions in the box were of course in Japanese.

    Here the stock suspension next to the Blitz ZZR coilover for comparison

    The ride quality is great! I was a little weary about getting suspension because of my commute but wanted the look so I took the gamble and I'm glad I did. I have them set pretty soft right now which feels like stock. Since my commute to work is about 70 miles to and from work I didn't want to go any stiffer. Since they're 32 way adjustable you can adjust to your comfort zone.
    If anyone is interested I would love to see more lowered Pri'i on the street and would gladly pass any hook ups I have and can give on these, just let me know.

    CE28n 18 x 7 on 215/40/18 Nankang NS-20 Noble Sport. Although I wished I researched more into getting some LRR tires instead.

    Good thing for the Blitz coilovers (y) brought the look al ltogether.

    I agree the price was great. Nothings wrong with the tires... Grip is good, no road noise but they're not Low rolling resistance tires to help with mileage. otherwise great tires.

    I would just overinflate them for better mileage unless you need new tires. Save some cash haha

    Hey there, those coil overs look great. Looks like you've captured quite a lot of interest (including myself). Could you post or pm me with more information? Also, you mentioned no road noise. Was this an improvement from the stock suspension? I noticed you're on 18 inch wheels too, which I would think doesn't absorb much of the road imperfections (and noise), unless you have pretty paved roads where you drive.

    Thanks!

    I don't have the alignment specs but the camber doesn't look have any negative camber. Almost or close to 0

    As for road noise i wouldn't say there's much of a difference seeing that you can adjust the dampening to your preference. Having the 18's vs the 15's there was a difference in smoothness at first but after the first week or 2 of having the suspension and wheels on, it seems normal and stock to me.
