    Does anyone have experience with the Megan racing street coilovers? I was thinking about scooping some up and giving my Prius a proper drop. I'm a little apprehensive though as I cannot find very much information on them.

    I and a few others have them. Pretty happy so far, but only 2 months on them. I chose them over others for the adjust-ability they offered especially for the price. Bought them through THmotorsports for ~$800.

    How does the ride compare to stock?

    Pretty good. It's stiffer, but not too harsh. You can dial in the damping to your comfort level.

    I have a set, fully threaded down rear, and about an inch and a half to go front... But the car sits pretty level.

    Those are the right ones. Just be careful who you buy from. There are some lower price people out there, but if you read the reviews of these guys their service is something less than desirable. I don't know anything about Lightningmotorsports, so you may want to check if they are legit.

    I was able to get the same price shipped from THM with a coupon code.

    Handling is better, I mean I have the TRD rear sway, Tanabe front Upper strut tower bar, and all the Cusco Bracing.

    Not as low as Jay (~1 3/4" drop), but here you go:

    Handling is much better.

    How is the alignment with these? Are you able to keep it in spec with that kinda drop?

    Rear is a torsion beam but still gained like a degree of negative camber, the front I have SPC camber bolts but dialed in 1 3/4 degrees of negative camber so I wouldn't rub as much...
