iv just bough a basic 04 avensis d4d but im just wondering if any of the higher spec avensis came with a lower ride hight ie t spirit tr t180

id live to lower the car a little on 18" alloys but a dont want to loose comfort i read that Eibach make the trd tte springs but will these still make the car rough on the road with 225/40/18 wheels

you will notice no change in the ride apart from it corners better and theirs not as much pitch and roll on stopping quick and shooting off al the lights..

I hope you have plenty of padding on your RRR's coz fitting 18" wheels on an 04 Avensis will feel like you are sitting on a plank IMHO, I had one many years ago all dollied up and didnt like it at all over the 17" set up

Kingo :thumbsup:

Hi mate i'm not 100% on this but I am led to believe that the Avensis made for the Ireland market had a higher ride hieght than the UK spec cars, if this is the case standard springs from a UK car would lower your car. Also the Uk cars from 2006 onwards have a heavy duty thicker anti roll bar and stiffer shocks on the front, not sure about the backend so this would include the T180, Tr and T-spirit like mine as you mentioned.

You have an irish car with the rough road package or on toyodiy( http://www.toyodiy.com/parts/p_E_2004_TOYOTA_AVENSIS_CDT250R-AEMEYW_4803.html ) known as "ireland spec" its not the springs that are different to the uk models its as far as i remember 3 smaller parts top and bottom of the springs. (i might be wrong there) i have an irish avensis but i got toyota juno 17"s with 215/45 tyres on it , the handling on the corners is vastly improved . i talked to a guy in toyota garage who had the lowered springs on his estate said it handled fantastic with the springs and the 17's but he wouldn't recomend the 18's . Eibach make the springs for TTE so get Eibach same model save a few bob. The springs will drop the car 30mm but because its the rough road package it'll probaly drop it by 15 to 20 mm which will look good with 17's.

though at the moment i'm looking at putting on 225/45/17 's on because that would be the correct size tyre but the alloy is only 7" wide but it should still go on. I hope you could follow all of that

ok checking out toyodiy and there are irish spec shocks and springs listed different part numbers to the uk spec so im hoping a set of -30mm springs till make my irish spec sit the same as a standard uk spec
