They are adjustable, and can still go an half an inch lower in the front and back. I tuck front tire by about half an inch and the rear is maybe a 1/4 of an inch tucked. I noticed the pictures I took really didn't to the drop justice. I have some pics of it stock height next to my RX330 and I need to take another similar shot in similar lighting of it now and you can really see how low is is.
I know this post is dead. But how do you tuck your tires?

You have get it pretty low at least 2.5 inches in the front and maybe 3 inches in the rear to really tuck, roll fenders in the rear depending on the offset you are running and how wide your tires are.

If you have the right offset your wont need camber kits, from what I have seen there aren't too many out there for the XB2 anyways. If you get the coil overs with the adjustable camber on top, that's one way. For the rear you need shims, but I haven't done that.

Any tire wear issues on your rear tho? That's my main concern right now if I don't get shim and just get an alignment would I be getting some wear issues.

No, I personally don't have Amy wear issues and just rotated mine two weeks ago. If you go extreme camber, then yeah there will be wear issues.

With the xb, when you drop it hard in the rear it goes to negative camber a bit already. I don't know if you'll need more camber , I don't know what kind of wheels you plan on running. You should check out scionlife, and look for the user severedvegan, he knows more about offset and camber.

It's not the camber that is an issue when lowering, it's the toe. We have -1.5* camber stock from the factory. Problem is that when you lower the rear with the beam axle it rotates forward and that camber turns into toe. It's the toe that needs to be taken care of. If you're lowering 1.5-2" in the rear it's not enough toe to really worry about. Past that is where it can start to be an issue. A good rotating schedule will help mitigate the wear though.

I'm planning to lower it more than 2inches so u think getting an alignment can't do anything about it?

I might be about 2.5 inches down I have a collar removed from the rear, I know other guys are lower than me running k-sports and I don't think I am that low when I look at my own ride.

I was just looking back at some old post in this thread and saw that the TEIN drop is suppose to be around 2.8 in the rear, and I remembered I think I took out both collars in the rear so I am probably sitting at 3.25 inches of drop. But I no longer have the white xb I have an 09 release series 6 (I believe). I also have different top hats on the front of my coil overs which gave me a better drop in the front by another 1/2 inch or so, and I have both collars still in the front.
