Just bought Eibach Pro springs for the gen6 camry and I need help installing them. Got all the tools cause my dad's a mechanic but he doesnt approve off tricking out cars so he wont help me =(. If you guys know how to replace my factory springs with these swt new eibachs I just got; much will be appreciated :D. If I ever get them on, I'll post some pix of my ride. So far its just tinted windows at the moment (35% front/15% rear). Future mods I plan to do are, enkei edr09 rims, black out all emblems, k&n intake (buying if someone has one to sell), i4 trd exhaust (was thinking of getting the v6 but not sure how I would do it without the left hole for the pipe to come out of), and HID lights. Lots of mods but I think I'll get there somehow.

I thought Eibachs are TRD springs.... which means they don't look right on 4 bangers (uneven drop).

Yea, do a search. Eibachs will only work out on a V6.

This is because the V6 is nose heavier. Your I4 will not drop properly in the front, it will be higher than the rear.

No way..!!! Can someone confirm this? I bought it off eBay and the guy said it'd work out on a 2.4 i4 camry. >.<.

Okay noob!!! :D

Eibach = TRD Springs, if anybody tells you different, slap 'em in the face!!!

V6 and I4 kits are the same.

The reason the I4 has an uneven drop is because it has a lighter engine than the V6.

That's why the V6 will have a more even drop all around.

I don't bother lowering my car because I don't like scratches and scrapes. ;)

soo.. im SOL, lol. how uneven is the drop? Would it look a lot off? Not sure why they would sell these springs for i4s if the drop would be uneven. If theres no solution, I'll probably end up selling it...

Don't worry - some people like to panic here. Search for a couple TN members with I4 and TRD/Eibach and you will see. Lammydi, Trojan...some of the best members here sport I4's with these springs.

(in my opinion the sagging with TRD is overhyped and people here just jump on hit w/o even having them or any other lowering springs)

Anyways, back on topic for the OP's original question.

It's not all that hard to do. Just need a few sockets with a torque wrench, maybe a breaker bar. Some PB Blaster and white grease. Also make sure to have some hex keys for the sway bar end links. Have some jacks and jack stands. Get a strut compressor rented. Find a friend or two, and your set.

I quickly looked through my alldata and could only find a picture of the front suspension, but fairly self explanatory and similar to the rear. For the rear, you have to access the upper strut mounts through the back seats, might have to take them off, I had to for my SE. Torque specs should be the same for the rear.

I'm not sure if I wanna drop my ride anymore. Anyone up to buy 2007-2009 Camry Eibach springs?
ignore what most of them said......your car will be lowered, and will look awesome with the rims you plan to get.

Drop it, you'll like drop, the added feel and stiffness...better handling...
