Hey Rick, i just ordered some Tanabe DF210's they were the nicest size drop i could find without spending a boat load of money for some coil overs or air suspension. The drop is 2.2 in the front and 2.0 in the back. I got mine from www.intensescion.com their local for me. The shop is Intense Morotsports. so i had to pay tax, but you can get them shipped for $150. Youll find most everything is about $150. hope this helps.

I've been thinking the same thing, I'm going to keep my car on 15s, does anyone with the DF210s have probs with speedbumps or anything like that. I have a condo, so I deal with them everyday...

I'm still inbetween the Tanabes and Tein S-Techs....

^ i know what u mean, my other car is my race/showcar and i cant drive it normally.

i hate seeing the gap in the wheel wells of the daily driver xb.

what do u think about the eibach or tein springs?
i dont want my shocks to bottom out, or be busted either.

im very confident in my spring purchase. i think the Tanabes will do me good. Originally i wanted to get the Tien S-Tech springs. but i wanted something more. which i found with the tanabe's. there are ALLOT of reputable spring choices out there. one so suite your every need. from racing, to comfort.

My friend has teins, I have nothing bad to say about them. They basically feel stock except the car is lower. He's had them on his xB for about a year and has had no problems, and is going to be putting them on his new RS4 also.

the megan springs are geared more as racing springs and have a spring rate of like 2305872349586235lbs.

Rick. the Tien H tech springs do not offer quite the drop the S-Tech springs do or the Tanabe. But the ride is supposed to be far superb to other brands of spring.

They also don't let the car sit level unless you have tons of people or crap in the back. Plus you could hide a person in all the wheel gap that is still there after you put them on.
