Just got back from the KM Toyota dealership. They said $350 for the springs and install. Anyoone think that's good? My dad said I can't do better, but I don't know a good shop.

Could do better by going through TRD Sparks and installing yourself, but that also requires time, tools, and the willingness to try. As far as shops go, not bad.

Right... free alignment. Keep dreaming, especially if you put the springs on.

Haha...tried to have mine aligned at toyo, their alignment rack couldn't fit 18" wheels. So no luck there. Just got it done. Boy o' boy, talk about serious changes with the trd springs. The back was seriously out and they got it in alignment, but won't be able to make further changes to the cambers in the back unless a kit comes out.

Hmm. Mine were barely out - got em perfectly aligned pretty fast (at least according to the service manual specs).

I had TRD 5-spoke 18" on my Matrix - had to go to 4 different places before I got get the car aligned - even places that had 18"-capable equipment could not do it because of the slight outward curve of the spokes. So I'm sticking to sock wheels on this one.

No stock wheels on this one
so it was harder to align. Ah well.
Should not be any more difficult in terms of alignment - as long as you can get the equipment on those wheels. What surprised me is that you need a camber kit to complete the alignment.

How much of a drop are those TRD springs? Is that the way to go?

I think I'll but them and then cut 1/4 coil off to get that extra .5 inch drop in the front. Someone on here had mentioned that...I forget who.
