Please post me a pic of your lowered Sedan!!

Hi all. I am looking into getting a Yaris sedan, and I would like to see what they look like after they have been lowered. Please post the specs of your drop in inches. Also what wheels you have. Remember, 4-doors only. Thanks a lot, benny.

Here's mine, Tein S.Tech springs, about a 2 inch drop, might be a little more.

Which springs would yall recommend to get rid of the rake? The slant that it has from the front to the back is often referred to as the "rake" for those who have never heard that. I would like there to be very little slant. Just a little bit though, so it doesn't look like the back is lower than the front when people sit back there.

That one thread the was linked to me had mostly hatch backs.

They're 17"x7" with 205/40/17 tires. I love the look they give me, but I hate worrying about them due to the horrible nature of parts of our freeways up here. I'll be switching down to 16's in the future. hehe.

How did your drop, and your wheels affect your ride quality? Did it get any worse?

Lowering it wasn't so bad. Adding the 17's made me well-aware of how crappy some parts of the freeways here are. But then again, I also have my tires' air pressure set to the max.

Thanks. Do you guys scrape a lot when pulling in/out of parking lots?

And do your tires rub the fenders?
