pic request : TRD springs and making them look good!

There's just too many hills / dips in where I live plus the speed bumps are huge.

I have a set of M2 springs (should be? 1.5" drop and they're blue) and KYB shocks in storage, but the more I think about it the more I lean towards keeping my current TRD springs/shocks set up.

Just need to see some pics of TRD goodness. I'm thinking low offset with lip.

Any ideas? The search function gave me only 2 relevant pics...

Re: pic request : TRD springs and making them look good!

What do you want to see exactly? xB's with TRD springs? I'm sure there are tons of pic on Google Images. Or are you trying to decide what wheels to run cuz you are on TRD's already?

Re: pic request : TRD springs and making them look good!

If I were you, I would want to get another set other than the TRD. They only drops at around 1in. I don't think this picture helps since the wheels has high offset (+35 front, +32 rear). LOL!

Re: pic request : TRD springs and making them look good!

I'm looking for xBs on TRD springs, tried google but only got about 4 pictures of actual rides, all the rest are Scion promo shots with the 18" TRD rims.

I'm still debating whether to drop mine again or stay with the TRDs..

What's a typical TRD height drop?

1" all around..

---------- Post added 03-19-2012 at 12:01 AM ----------

Just put my 15x7 back on..

Specs : TRD springs and shocks
Dr-41 rims : 15x7 et10
Yokohama S-Drive 195/50R15






Wheel gap is quite big due to the undersized tire and mild drop. Will move on to proper tire size next time around.

It is nice looking now, I see where you would want the 2 inch drop, just to fill in the fenders, I would say go for it, but heck, it looks clean right now.

Re: pic request : TRD springs and making them look good!

My brother has the TRD springs on his. He's also running 19s but the TRDs are alot better than what he had.
the springs that he originally had was something in the area of a 2.5-3 drop. I believe he still has the old springs if anyone is interested. I'm going to go with the TRD's just because I don't want to have to come to a complete stop to go over a road reflector.
