Smile TRD spring install pics

before, note how light it was when i started lol


getting ready to do the back


one of the springs in


after i finished the back


time for the front, uhhhhh!


i thought i'd never get the front done


putting the wiper stuff back together


and finally!
had to take pics in the driveway of the house for sale across the street cause i couldn't get any good pics in my driveway lol









well the spring install took waaaay too long, i should have waited to put my sway bar on and i had some issues with my jack and the front. other than that the backs were easy and i don't even have to say how much the fronts sucked, you guys know! so now i don't want to do anything to my car for a long time

it looks much better in person, i'll take some new pics after i clean her up

BIG THANKS to Chris07LB's DIY, would have never been able to do it without it and other posts i found helpful on here, so thank you yarisworld too! Yeah, and I should have used a spring compressor, i thought "oh they might pop a little" damn things flew across my room and chipped the wall LOL

oh and, when should i get an alignment?

Nice car! I like new 2009 bracket foglights.


Your car comes with rear bumper protector? Can you take a picture of it?

BTW good job!

Well done and you saved some bucks. Sway bar isn't any big deal on the install. I very much like the tint.

thanks! yeah the sway bar was nothing, it just would have saved me a little time to wait and put it on after i did the springs so i didn't have to put it on, take it off then put it back on again lol

I would get an alignment done sooner than later. It's not a huge drop but i'm sure the specs changed a little.

Did you have a hard time getting the wiper cowl back together?
Mine was a pain.
