thanx guys :)

i was thinking about lowering it next.

lots of speed bumps round here though, how low should i go?

ive seen adjustable spring sets that allow you to go from 25mm to 45mm are these any good?

the sets are around £80 buy now on ebay

and how much could i expect a garage to charge me for fitting them?

The spax are good for the money but make sure you uprate the shocks as well.  :thumbsup:

the standard toyota shocks are good enough mate trouble is they dont last very long and get knackered after a 80K ish imo so probably need replacing anyway

Sorry bud have to disagree on this one. I changed my springs for spax thinking the GT4 shocks, which were newish, would be good enough. Not so. OK on compression but horrendous rebound. Got KYB`s and they`re good now. It may`ve been the shocks but they`d covered less than 20K Anyhow. He can always do the shocks at a later date if they`re a bit bouncy. :thumbsup:

mine was just bouncy on one corner which was the one shock which had a leak.

i replaced all four and was very pretty dissappointed with the outcome. No bounce on that corner anymore but didnt notice much else.

Ive heard that the toyota shocks on my car are infact made by KYB or something along those lines or maybe almost identical in there characteristics? not sure though

This of course will just be for the st202... improvements on yours dont count :P ;)

Very nice wheel, looking good

have a buchers at mine, its the Gen 6 like yours and it has (wat seller said) TRD 30mm lowered springs.

In the pics it's on 18 inch alloys but you get a good idea. I have to go over speedbumps regularly and I've not bottomed out yet but dont know if I would go much lower.
