    I haven't had my Tanabe Springs installed yet. The front struts are not like regular ones. They don't have the 3 bolts that bolt it to the shock tower. The whole cowl has to come off so when my friend has time this Saturday I will be bringing it to his shop to get it done. I can't wait to see how the ride changes and how better the handling gets

    I will post what I think about them Saturday night if everything goes well. I heard from many people and read reviews where everyone loved them, that's why I went with the Tanabes

    I am thinking about springs as well, not sure if I want to go TRD, Tanabe or Teins. Looking forward to hearing how you like the Tanabe's.

    I have the same plates, I went with "Prius C" though. They are not bad and really dress up the car when the doors are open.

    Your never done, there will always one more thing ;)(y)

    Thx, I have been checking out the thread on sound deadening. I think that would be my next mod.

    It took about 1000 miles to break in the new springs but after 1k the ride feels the same as stock.It was pretty bouncy the first 200-500 miles.

    Yes, you can select the color of the LED, I think it was white or blue.

    Ok, about 2 hours ago I finally had my Tanabe NF210 springs installed. Here are a few before and after pics. I will take more pics tomorrow. So far it feels just like a factory ride. Closed up the gaps real nice. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    The front was a .08 inch drop and the rear was a 1.1 inch drop. In person you can see the difference. It closed the gap up really nice. Nothing extreme but to me just perfect. This is my daily driver so I didn't want to go too crazy. The ride is just like factory and the handling does feel improved but I really didn't go to crazy with it since the roads are all wet from rain. I will take more pics in the daylight and see if those pics show the difference better.
