Troy your car looks sweet lowered, I'd seen it before and wondered if you were going to do it.

Well Diz, it's all good - we're currently WAY out-numbered by all the Orange Creamsicle drivers on here, so we need a few more NBM's to compete!...

...Damn peer pressure...!

Thanks, yeah, I was resisting the drop, but i do think it looks better now... unfortunately, both my front tires scrape the liners right at the wheel well lip at every little dip, not sure what I gonna do...

As for your wheels rubbing have you had you alignment checked to make sure the camber and toe aren't out of alignment. just a suggestion.

No not yet, but I was hoping that might help a little after I get it done... And it seems like it's not scraping quite as much now that I had the car out on the road a few times, maybe the springs just needed to get seated properly... I'd like to get under there and look at how exactly the rubbing is happening, but today it's ugly and raining outside...

I also want to try driving the car with 4 adults in it, just as a test to see how bad it might rub fully loaded... although i hardly ever ride anyone else normally in the car except my two young daughters who don't weigh very much...

OK two questions. does it do all the time or just when you are cornering?


Two did you put the bump stops back in?

Only reason I ask is my old xB i lowered on the teins and i left the bump stops out and it allowed the vehicle to be lowered about another 1/2 inch and it rubbed the inner fender when I turned. there was a bolt covered by the inner fneder lining and there was a bulge in the inner fender lining to make it fit over and cover the bolt and when turning my tires rubbed the bulging part.

It scrapes when just driving straight and hitting a small dip or bump, sometimes even just an asphalt patch in the road will do it... anything that makes the tire hop up more than a inch or inch and a half... if I hit a larger dip or bump, it will fully bottom out in the front, but I was expecting that to happen with the car lowered... it will sometimes rub when cornering fairly aggressively, and I think it rubs when at full lock turning left...

I did not remove the bump stops, but actually CUT them down, about the bottom 2" (at the top of the plastic ring in middle of the bumpstop) as was recommended, both in the included Progress instruction sheet and instructions I printed off the internet for putting Tanabe DF's on a Yaris - same suspension, same drop... otherwise, I'd be bottoming out all the time instead of rubbing, that would be even worse, I think... I also had instructions for TRD springs on the xD, but since the TRD's are only a 1" drop, cutting the bumpstops wouldn't be necessary, so those instructions didn't say anything about cutting them...
