I bought a set of trd lowering springs and front strut brace. Got the rear springs on and the front strut brace.

Will I need to get the car alignment done after doing the front struts? If so I think i'll wait until spring, get thru the nasty winter and by then I'll have 30,000 ish miles on it.

What struts are available? Not finding too much online.

You will definitely need a front end alignment after installing the TRD front lowering springs. At that time you can get also the rear alighnment checked to see how close to (or far out of) spec you might be.

The rear cannot be aligned unless you use shims.

I just finished installing this set. Slight problem with shipping though. The box arrived damaged and the strut flanges were slightly scuffed. Toyota Sparks stepped up and gave me a $50 credit, no questions asked...

The install was pretty easy, given you have the right tools (impact, spring compressor). Overall it took me about 2.5 hours at a nice steady (slow, careful) pace. The car feels much more planted and firm now. It absorbs bumps better and rails around corners. I'm pleased with my purchase. Good stuff!...
