    Looking into getting coilovers. Any one have them in their C? What brand have you installed and who has the best deals on them. I installed lowering springs and the rear end is sagging to much to when I'm bottoming out on the highway going 65-75MPH.
    Feedbacks appreciated!

    I met him at one of the gathering. If I get stuck, I will reach out to him. Thanks for the reminder.

    His site also lists the drop size and coilover rate of most of the coil overs for the C.

    What springs did you install btw?

    Tanabe spring with factory shocks. Bad choice. I will post pictures once I have the coilovers installed and set to comfortable ride height for the east coast.

    I had someone help me bring them in. Front and side skirts are Toyota Japan's factory option #2 and rear is TRD Japan first option. Also have the front bumper garnish.

    I got a deal on them. I think you can find them on ebay or Carson Toyota for $360-400 for the front lip.

    I ran kw v3s and they were awesome for the car. Probably too good for the daily driving I did. Extremely light weight compared to teins and also felt a lot smoother while still being able to maintain stiffness.

    If you are carry passengers in the back I do not recommend lowering the car. This is my DD and I cannot load anyone in the back.

    If you must carry up to 3 passengers, I really don't recommend lowering it at all.

    I would recommend changing any suspension if you carry people. I can't even have a 100 pound person in the back of my car.
