Ride quality is very important to me - but i want to lower my car. should i go with the Eibach pro kit, H&R, or TRD? in eibach's case, the 03-08 and 09 springs are the same. assuming thats the same deal witht he other brands... anyway... what do you all recomend? and if someone can type a brief walkthrough on swapping springs (tools to rent too) i'd appreciate it.

im dropped on the 9th gen eibachs. i never really took any measurements of the drop. the ride is slightly stiffer than stock but still bearable.

but then again, im used to driving my other car which is dead stiff on coilovers...

if you want to sleep tight at night do the alignment and if the manual says replace with new parts do it. they know more than we do.
