well... i heard that tein s tech springs are pretty good for both, but i dunno?? I am planning on getting 16' wheels. obviously the car sits low as it is. I just want to drop it enough to close a little wheel gap that might be left over with the 16's on it. I'll prolly throw a descent series tire on em as well to help with the gap aswell.if anyone has 16's, lemme know what a good set up will be!!

Hotchkis. I have used them on three different cars and had nothing but great experiences. Mine finally sagged to about 2.5 drop. Here they are with 17's

check all options first

here is is a link to tech info for most springs for xB's i chose a progressive rate spring over the others for 2 reasons its softer ride at first for commuting and putting around town then when ya drive harder the rate increases drastically. i bought Eibach pro kit 1.5 fr 1.6 rr there sport kit is 2.0 for both
the spring rate of stock is 148 fr / 160 r.
the Eibach starts lower then gets stiffer as you drive more aggresivly or load more in the box 120-180 fr / 69-211 rr
:D :D :D :D ;) ;) ;) ;) and i found both Eibach kits for 208.00 shipped

I like Goldlines. I have dropped almost 100 Scions now, about 75% of them on Goldlines.

So how low do the goldlines lower the box? The Box is the wifes daily driver and she is sittn on 18's so it cant have a big drop I just want something to get rid of the monster truck look.
