Default The Be All End All Tanabe df210 Springs Thread!(pics too)

There are more threads on here about df210's than there are users. Can someone please make this a sticky so that it's easily found and others can add their comments and advice on the df210's.

Tanabe df210 Springs

Price: If you're paying more than $160, you're paying too much.
ptuning.com offers a 5% Scion Life Discount making them $161.95, no tax or shipping. Other places have them cheaper. $145-155 is a great price.

Pros: The drop is sick, it's about as low as you can go on springs alone, easy install.

Cons: A little bouncy compared to Goldlines, be careful when driving in and out of steep driveways and what-not, some bodykits may require less of a drop for driveability.

Install Notes: I'll leave that to someone else, b/c I "assisted" in the install of mine by a friend on a hydraulic lift and it only took about 20 minutes...so I'll leave the TRUE install notes to someone else.

Pics:


Front Wheel:


Rear Wheel:






FAQ Answers:

Yes I drag the front lip A LOT, but my town's roads aren't the greatest.
The ride is good, but could be better, but could also be worse.
It's 2.2" drop in the front and 2.0" in the rear.
The rims are 17".

Everyone, please feel free to add on as necessary.

When you say a little more bouncy than goldlines, do you mean smooth bouncy like a car with no shocks, or harsh bouncy, like stiff? Did you have goldlines before for comparison?

Yeah it has gotten a little out of hand. I know I am guilty of at least 2 threads but after doing a search I didn't get the answers needed. But SL peeps are actually starting to go at each others thoats on these DF210 threads. Enough is enough !

So to second this being a sticky & to add my 2 cents. I used this thread for the step by step instructions to a self install. It works great did mine with no problems. Use it, Print it, Keep it handy to help someone else out & no the springs will not fly out & hit or kill you !

https://www.scionlife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=20769

Also If anyone needs help feel free to get a hold of me as I installed them myself & would be glad to answer any question or help you out with the install.

Wyldkard - Nicely done, good info, & a great idea IMO

Bouncy - Smooth bouncy, not harsh bouncy. Going down the highway and you hit a little dip, you'll feel it a little more than stock or Goldlines. I'm not comparing this to having Goldlines on my car, I'm comparing it to riding in Scions on Goldlines.

i think the best springs for the xb is the goldlines,the ride is better than the stock springs and the drop looks pretty good as well,for the price you can't go wrong with goldlines and it also comes with a lifetime warranty......good looks,not too low so that your bumper kiss the pavement and a great price what more can you ask for.....

This is for those who own df210's to share information for those considering df210's. Not that your input isn't appreciated, but it's off-topic. And by the way I got mine for way less than Goldlines, but it was before ptuning.com raised it's prices.
