1st post, just bought 2011 Yaris 3dr. Looking for coilovers as well. Are there any changes throughout the years that make some years incompatible with others?

Think I'm gonna go with the FK coilovers from Vivid Racing. Calling today, having overnighted and will install this weekend if they're in stock. I'll post my thoughts if this all works out.

What are the differences between the sedan and LB as far as compatibility of coilovers goes?

Ended up going with the Megans. FK's were in Germany and not in stock. Would've taken 4-6 weeks. Screw that.

Can't wait

I just bought a 2008 3 door LB that only has 13,200 miles on it. I don't even have the car yet, it has to be delivered from Denver to Seattle, but I have already ordered Megan Racing coil-overs (thanks for all the info here), upper front strut tower brace, lower front brace, and a rear spoier! I can't wait to get the car and start putting on parts!!

There is a new coilover kit for our Yaris. Maybe someone could add it to the first page of this thread. I am not sure if it gets available outside of Europe.

Bilstein B14 PSS
Height-adjustable
Preset dampening
spring rates ???

http://www.bilstein.de/en/home.html
Part number: 47-188044

Bilstein says their suspension system are all tested at Papenburg test track (40% property of Mercedes Benz) and at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife. The shocks even have a small Nordschleife sticker on them.
