Default TRD Sparks is awesome!
I've been wanting to de-TRD my suspension for a while now... just too bumpy for these roads. I was able to get OEM springs from someone on SL, but wanted to go with new shocks and struts. The Scion dealership where I bought the car wanted $364.60 for them... no, thats not the installed price. I just ordered them from Sparks and it was just over $300 including shipping.

I've been waiting a long time because it seemed like a waste to dump my TRD setup and buy new... But now that the xD has over 40k on it, and I'm getting ready to buy a new trailer to tow, it seemed like a good time to finally make the upgrade (downgrade?).

Anybody want a set of 40k mile TRD shocks, struts, and springs?

Thanks TRD Sparks!

lol... yeah, I thought about that. Should it read, "De-TRDed"? "TRDs Removed"? "Not a TRD any more"?

how about "TRD-less" or "TRD-free"?

If you go back to the stock ride height it will increase your frontal area and might increase your aerodynamic drag and knock off a MPG or two on the highway.......

You'll still get better mileage than me though. Damn those depleted uranium insoles.
