    Im almost done working on my 2016 Prius, Got 17" Wheels, Aero Side Splitter and soon a rear lip..

    Now I want to lower the car...does the Tanebe kit sold in PriusChat.com work?

    Thanks!

    Tanabe has released springs specifically for the 2016 Prius. You can find them with google or on Tanabe's site. 5%-10% increase in stiffness, about 1" drop.

    How is the handling with the springs? Noticeable difference or just lower?

    It held the turns flatter and there was less "bounce" over bumps.
