    It does make a positive difference - and it looks good when you open the hood!

    Right there with you. 1.5” taller springs, and slightly oversized tires would completely transform this car into a more well rounded AWD. Other than that I’m very impressed with it as a whole.

    I might have gone a little too meaty but I really like the look.

    CE28N's in 15x6.5 +42 (after 3mm spacer) with 215/60/15 tires. 20200125_085657.jpeg 20200125_085710.jpeg 20200125_085724.jpeg 20200125_085729.jpeg

    So I don't know if I should keep posting here (General) with my new mods or over in the Accessories and Modifications section... And if so, one new thread for each mod or just one thread for my "build". Maybe moderators can advise and/or move this thread? Don't really see build section as I know that not the prius isn't really a platform that people build on.

    With that being said, after over a month of waiting for it, just got my brand-spanking new toe arm. Apparently it waa built from scratch when I ordered. I've been waiting to put my Cusco control arm (camber arm) until I got the toe arm to do it together. It came just in time as I just threw on new tires on Friday. The toe wasn't bad at all (camber was off-spec with the lowering springs) but I figured if I'm going to go down there, might as well change the toe arm as well. 20200127_145355.jpeg 20200127_145428.jpeg 20200127_145518.jpeg 20200127_145530.jpeg 20200127_145538.jpeg

    So installed the Cusco camber arm and Sixth Sense toe arm and got my camber corrected. It wasn't off much originally but I wanted everything to be in the green. I doubt I even needed to change the toe arm. Had them installed at a shop and drove 1mile to a pepboys to get the alignment done.

    Wish I took more shots while it was on the lift. I also did the PS1 stabilizer bars (pic below isn't mine but to show where they go"

    Overall, car feels solid. I mean, i don't want to say it has European feel to it but the car just feels responsive and not so "loosey-goosey" on the road. I actually look forward to driving it everyday 20200201_125548.jpeg FB_IMG_1579036777266.jpeg 20200202_182128.jpeg

    I agree! My 2019 is even lower than our previous 2016. I couldn’t get it on a tow dolly behind the RV.
