Just want to know how many miles you've put on your drop and any issues you had/have. Please post tires and wheels you are running.

Me: Roughly 20K on the drop and the car has pulled a bit to the left right since day one, had it aligned but still pulls.
Wheels: ISx50 wheels/tires 18x8 & 18x8.5, Offset: 45mm front & 50mm rear
Tires: Bridgestone Potenzas 225/40-18 & 255/40-18

About 10k miles on my TRD springs, stock struts.

Now running on 19x8.5 +36 all around with 235/35/19 tires. No rub or anything.

Not low enough for aftermarket wheels in my opinion. Just handles a bit better then stock suspension, either going with S.Techs or coilovers.

My Springs before is TRD springs I have no problem, but when I switch to H&R's the car starts pulling a bit to the left. I have done 2 alignments in 2 different shops after my H&R's is installed. The mechanic suggest the bolts that he used in his chrysler 300 that has 22's on it with a Eibach sportline springs but it will cost me $300 to do it and 2 hours to install it, thats why I didn't do it and know my car still's pull a bit to the left. The mechanics explanation is that the front left tire is more negative than the front right tire that's why it is pulling to the left.

btw, my tires are 235/45-18 kumho ecsta spt

I've had my eibachs for about 6 months on the original struts with 113,xxx k miles on them...I pull to the right especially stopping and taking off from stop lights...but i was in a wreck that junked my front suspension, and it pulled slightly even before the springs...

whats the point of this post when it has nothing to do w/ the OP?

@ the OP: Lots of people experience cars pulling to the left or right after they drop their cars and even alignment can't fix it. I had this same problem and had big o tires align it. They couldn't get it right, so I ended up going to Bear's alignment. They specialize in dropped cars and hand align all of the vehicles. My car's been perfect ever since. Try looking for a reputable hand alignment shop somewhere close to you, not computerized.

Thats what my father in-law suggested. He had an older camry that pulled to the left from day one. He had a computer alignment and didnt fix it, ended up taking it to some old time mechanic and did a hand alignment and it fixed it. Dont they use a tape measure and measure in front and behind the tires until they are equal? That shop's the one in corona right?

You may need a camber kit, Eibach has camber bolts too.

Update on my car. No longer running 225/40 fronts. I slapped on a set of 255/40s on the 18x8s with NO problems. Will get an alignment later this week and will post a before and after spec sheet.

I have the TRD Springs (with spring spacers on the rear to make the wheel gap even all around) and the factory TRD Wheels installed with a little over 24K miles on the odometer....no issues at all.
