I went with the Tanabe NF120, I'm happy with my drop. Good to know they work for someone though.

Interesting, made me think. How do you think these got on ebay and where did they come from? The ebay ones might be based on a real branded set and either are exactly the same, or factory rejects, or something. Would a company go to the trouble of manufacturing aftermarket springs for a Scion xB just to sell them on ebay? I doubt it. (This ebay seller specializes in "women's/girlie tees", but seems to sell a lot of car parts and flash memory cards.)

So they could actually be a good deal on some gray market but "real" after market built springs. Or they could be rejected for either cosmetic or physically important reasons. I don't know. They can't list on ebay if they are a certain company's model but they might say if you ask. Feedback is good.

By the way, it says "Approx: FRONT :1.1" REAR:2.0" Drop "
Does that line up with anything we know? It could be listed slightly differently so there isn't an obvious match. They look progressive, right?
