Click on the link again. After the page opens, look for "Latest News." The second arrow is pointing to "Scion coil-over kits xA/xB/tC."

If you want specs, click on the catalog, it has a reference guide. (Haven't done it myself, let me know if it works!)

where'd you guys get your monroes from? did you need anything else to accompany the coilovers? like an alignment kit or camber kit? and do i need top hats?

No alignment kit / camber kit and top hats come in the kit.

I think I'm the only one who had problems with the Monroe's with this setup. They were to soft as a shock for the soft coilovers, and was bottoming out at every little bump. Had to switch back to OEM shocks...and all is good now!

sweet...i would much rather keep the oem shocks. a little cheaper obviously. are the progress coilovers too soft? does it at least handle better than stock? i would guess so.

i'm running the Progress Coils
and pretty much suffering from them everyy time i drive.

i swapped out the
OEM shocks to Monroe's and pretty much feel the same.

not sure if the fronts are as
bouncy as the rear, so hopefully changing
out the Monroe's rears to HKS rears will improve...

(tip - save your money for better comfort)

well do you have sway bars and strut bars? what makes your car any different from the other people that love their coilovers? where did you buy yours from?

yeah...partshippers is definitely where i'm gonna get mine. some place sells em for 500, but i don't trust that price at all. and wouldn't bars help out the shocks? maybe. and i guess getting aftermarket rear shocks might help. someone said that their oem shocks worked better though.

strut and sway bars have no influence on shock performance comfort and ride wise. stock and stock replacement (monroe) shocks are not meant to be run with stiffer spring rates and low ride heights. Run a proper performance shock

How many lowered cars have you experienced Zach? I wanna know your expert background because you seem to be the only one that hates them. How low are you riding on them? Mine are slammed and ride soft as hell. Theyre so soft I dont even experience bounce. Im really anxious to see your ride height because either you got faulty ones, have another suspension problem, or have it at a weird height that isnt allowing travel.
