Has anyone used the lowering kit from B-G Suspension? I saw a Xb with a set and rolling on 19" wheels. Anyone out there have any opinion on them. They say they only drop it 1.25" and are a progressive rate.

I have the TRD's. they're roughly an inch or so drop, so it's subtle. It's noticeable, but I'd like it lower. You won't blow out the shocks for awhile, many people have been running the 2in drop springs for at least a year and they've had no problems.

Although after a little while, it IS a good idea to replace the shocks.

All in all, it's your decision, but if you ask most people, they will tell you they enjoy the lower drop as opposed to a subtle one.

the only thing worse than being too low is not being low enough.

My friend ran B-G coil overs on his SE-R and they were were great. I havent ridden on much better suspension as far as coil overs go. If B-G made spy springs, then thats what I'm running on now. I've had them for over 6 months and the only complaint is that they are pretty bouncy. I'm compairing it to my last ride which was a truck on bags though.

Yeah I was a little confused with it. It really depends on the roads im driving on. There's shitty highways in some of the suburbs of chicago and the car seems to get really bouncy on some of them but be smooth on others. Now that I have 16's it rides smoother though, which still doesnt make sense since there is less tire. Oh well I still love the drop. I want to get rear shocks soon, but we'll see how the $$$ situation is
