After long delay due to being busy, snow, etc etc...here's the pictures of my car before and after the lowering springs got installed. While they were installing I took a stock auto out for a test drive and could only take an s curve near the dealership at 45....same course with my car and I was going 70 with no sliding or sqealing of tires. Of course I have better tires, and sway bar...and then springs.
I am now a cornering machine....













And my car was dirty. LoL

ah, snow dirt.


ok, first off, let me say FINALLY!!!
kidding.
i must say that the car looks great with the springs. it looks more aggressive and like it means business. and from what you say performance-wise, that's a significant improvement. and my compliments on the excellent pictures. they show the difference perfectly. i've seen some pics that make it hard to see due to shadows and stuff, but great angles. shows the wells really good.

what kind of tires? and are they trd springs? how much did it cost to get them installed?
The tires are Sumitomo HTR+ on my TSW Thruxton hyper black wheels.
Springs are TRD, and it cost about $260 total to get the springs and get them installed. From the dealership, no less


And the car has been washed and waxed better since those pictures...LoL...it's actually very clean right now but I was being lazy and didn't take a newer picture.

Oh no! I don't feel insulted. Thanks for the reply. No I just thought folks didn't realize that I had posted some additional pics that showed a comparison between the stock tC with ground effects and mine with TRD lowering springs and shocks.
