    So my front struts are definitely blown from me driving like a d-bag (2012 PiP Advanced). Figured I’d upgrade the handling, lower it, and replace the struts in one shot.

    Has anyone done this on their PiP? Was it worth it? Here are the parts I’m looking at:

    1. Genuine TRD Prius Plus Lowering Springs for 2010-2012 Toyota Prius-New, OEM


    2. Genuine Toyota Parts PTR11-47010 Plus Sway Bar


    3. KYB Struts x4 (Front & Rear)

    Do I need anything else like a front strut bar, additional equipment etc? I’m fairly new to modding hah. Any help is very much appreciated.

    Also I’m thinking of putting on stock silver 17” from the 3rd Gen Prius Five + Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires. Should I do that after the struts/shocks or same time?

    Surprised your shocks went out that fast. I would do it all the same time if you’re considering because you’re going to take out the struts anyways.
    I haven’t lowered my PiP Advance yet and I have the Pri V wheels on it.
    Fills that gap well but it does sit higher but I keep weighing factors and keep coming back to leave it as is.
