    I was browsing cusco.com website and their catalog for the aqua shows full coil over kits as well as shock/strut kits with springs. Also strut tower braces,chassis stiffener braces and sway bars.:D

    Honestly, I would just suggest the strut tower bar, the center power brace, and either one of the sway bars. For the STB, make sure it fits the LHD version since the parts are designed for the RHD version in Japan. The STB for the Gen III Prius has fitment issues with the brake reserve.

    If you could wait it out, I'm sure Tanabe will be developing parts for the C. They generally run a lot less $ than the CUSCO parts.

    only the sway bars would be a worthwhile suspension mod. chassis bracing? on a 99 hp hybrid? for what? anybody that says they can feel the difference between a prius c with and without a strut tower brace is likely feeling the placebo effect. after spending $200 on a piece of metal, you convince yourself that you can feel the difference.

    springs, dampers, sway bars. those you can feel even at low to moderate speeds. chassis braces? 99% cosmetic on this car...
