Welcome to the site!

I have the Tanabe DF210s & love 'em. They offer a great drop and I'm still very happy w/ the ride comfort. If you want to go lower, you'll have to wait for Teins or go w/ coilovers. I guess it also depends on if you want to do other suspension mods & want to match parts.

Thanks for the replies fellas. Mine is a Blackberry Crush color. Pretty cool looking.

As far as the drop, I don't want to give up much in the way of ride. And I am not too concerned about matched parts as far as the sway bars go. My biggest concern right now is finding someone loval that can do the work for me. I do not have the place or the time to do it. I could probably do it myself if I had a place and time. I did see some cold air intakes on ebay. Are they worth it? And what about those little chips that say they can you more mpg and hp? Do they really work? For $10, wouldn't everyone get it? I didn't mention it earlier, but this is only my 1st week with the car. I have been impressed so far.

Anyone in my local area on here?

Hey man nice to have you on here. I don't want to hinder your asking questions and such however this is the wrong thread for that. Introductions would be the best place for this type of thread and then we can direct you in the right direction from there to answer your quesions.

Dang those S-Tech specs are really nice, too bad the production model will not lower as much - like the Hotchkis ones and the Goldlines, the pre-production were always lower.

Only coilovers Ive seen are the K-Sport ones. Tein keep saying its on its way, but have yet to hear about actually when. I think they will have Tein basics and maybe an adjustable one too. Ive also heard that Cusco will have Zero2s available for the xB2, but those will in the $2-2500 range.

Here is my question...how do I know which spring to go with? I don't plan on changing my wheels from the factory size. I do however think I would like front and rear sway bars and maybe a strut brace.

Any recommendations? Also, I live in the Daytona/Deland area and really have no idea where to go to get any of this done. Any ideas on where I can go?

Great site. Thanks
Welcome to the site and the world of Scions. Here is a link to the Suspension section on our site and you can get some info there about some of the Springs, Sways, and Shocks. I know it's a bit of a shameful plug, but I know it might help you.

You guys aren't ever going to offer springs by Tanabe are you?

Man look at what I lost in the auction for a measly buck!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=170263025306

These MSRP's @ around $240! Oh well, that's what I get for being a cheapskate...

Is there anyone out in the performance world that make a leveling kit? I would like to make the back of the car to be about 1/2-3/4 inch higher than the front instead on 2 1/2 like it looks. I just want it almost level. Any help would be great!
