I have read many posts, searched tons of times, but Im still not sure which springs to get. I am going to be on 18's, which do you think looks best, the S-Techs or the TRD Springs? Please post your opinions and pics of your drops, to compare. Thanks!

I personally have the s techs and love the drop and the ride isnt harsh at all. The size of your rims have no bearing on the drop because whether you have 17s 18s or even 19's the circum. of your tire shouldnt change much if properly up sized.

yes, wheel size is not a big concern. anyway, i prefer the TRD rims because they reduce the gap lightly. maybe it was only one tC i saw with s techs, but it seemed that the wheels were covered by the drop because it was lowered so much.

tCs have such a ugly wheel gap especially in the back ..... TRD only drop inch which i think for the money its not even worth it and drop is barely noticeable....i purchased goldlines which is a 2inch drop and looks clean gives the tC much better look.... if ud like to see some pics look at the members section i posted some pics of my ride

im getting the TRD springs and shocks. i feel it closes enough of the wheel gap, and enhances the performance, while still having a comfrotable ride. and you can never go wrong with TRD parts on a toyota.

I would agree with that.

I am getting TRD springs. I'm not replacing the struts etc. and TRD's are the only ones that won't destroy my stock stuff. also they get rid of the gap and increase performance. (only thing that im wondering is if they are worth 363-410$ If anyone has a better thing for me to spend that cash on tell me)

the springs should cost you 199 from the dealer. and they a bit cheaper at www.mcgeorgeparts.com. the install is what gets you. if you plan to put on sturts at an point in the future, i'd get em now and not have to pay twice for the install.
