i used the same lowering springs for my yaris. my yaris is a 09 so it came with running lights already. i do plan on getting yellow foglights soon. i see ur running lights are really bright. you could spray tint them without losing much brightness.

Curious if you did that yourself or went to a shop, and how much!

I have the springs to lower mine, I just don't want to spend $700 to put them on!!

Thanks for the nice comments guys

$700 to fit springs?

I had them fitted for £100 which is about $160

e3p0,

it isn't that bad to install them yourself. it does take some time and one specialty tool is required (spring compressor). I went to advance auto (also, autozone, and oreileys) and did their loan a tool program and got to use the tool for free. you do have to bring it back.

an impact gun helps too. a friend of mine had an electric one. it worked great. I will say there were some frustrating times while doing my install. here is the install guide I found a while back.
