Well thanks for the explanation.Originally posted by inevitablegod@Sep 12 2006, 09:38 AM
technically, the stock shock and strut combo on the tC is a coilover. look under the rear of the xB, you will see an example of non-coilover shocks and springs. even a macpherson strut is a coilover. the spring fits over the shock and is held in place by a hat. same on your tein's, etc...
but your aftermarket coilovers are going to have an increased spring rate, adjustable height, and on certain models, dampening and camber adjustments.
and yes, they are generally better performing that stock suspension.

With the TRD package, you put it on the car, get an alignment... and you're done.
I managed to acheive a perfect 50% cross-weight, and was within 40lbs of perfect 50% left/right split. Lots of time on the chassis scale.
Anybody know what McG's track record is on accurate predictions?Originally posted by mcgeorge@ 17 Oct 2006 8:58am
TRD is working on a adjustable coil-over set for the Scion tC no ETA at this time
I am guessing sometime in the spring
Looks like pricing is around $1475.00 LIST
