Usually stock struts on most cars don't take to lowering very well. This depends largely on how low the drop is of course. I went with Tokico HP struts at the same time I replaced my springs.

I couldnt afford struts

TRD Drop is very suitable for the stock struts. Since its an OEM part and doesnt offer a big drop. But my drop looks great with the 18" wheels.

Not your traditional ride, but at a little under $40,000(no that is not a typo) I figure it deserved a post. I bet it's more comfortable that any other car around here too, the seat cushion alone was $500. I modified the rims myself for a black on silver look, I did the underglow and the LEDs under the headlights myself(with some physical help from a friend), and I tweaked the programming on the chair to give it a little extra "umph". The underglow and headlight LEDs are controlled through wireless remotes. It also has hazards, turn signals, and a horn, but I never use them. The elevate feature raises me 10" and when I combine the tilt with the recline I can basically lie flat(works great when you need a quick nap during class). The leg rests also elevate.

Manufacturer: Permobil
Type: Street
Top Speed: 10 mph
Range: apx. 22 miles per charge
Acc.: 0-10 mph in about 1 second
Power: 2 motors, apx. 1.5 HP each, I can climb a four inch curb like it wasn't
even there ;-)
Suspension: 4 "RockShox"(one on each wheel) for a smooth independent
suspension
Seat Cover: Leather
"Hood": carbon fiber black with gold accents

And yes, if a pretty lady asks for a ride, I most certainly will give them one :-D.

$40k? Damn, looks like a good way to get around if you have to use a wheelchair.

My previous insurance company refused to cover even a pennies worth of durable medical equipment(DME), so for about 7 years or so I had to use donated/"hand-me-down" wheelchairs from the local MDA organization. Once my dad changed companies which came with insurance that covered 100% of DME, I went from old clunkers to the Lamborghini of all wheelchairs ;-). I have to sit in it all day, so I might as well ride in style ;-). This will probably be my last wheelchair anyways as I don't have much left in me(thank you ravages of Muscular Dystrophy) so I figured I would go out in style. I have a picture somewhere of the New England Patriot Cheerleaders sitting all around me and my chair, gotta find it and post...

Yeah, I don't blame you for that. I bet the cheerleaders kept you good company.

Besides the suspension, the work wheels, and the oem kit it's fully stock. tint is coming soon along with a nice audio system. all feedback and comments good or bad are appreciated. enjoy.





Just to update everyone, i got a good offer on the car so i got rid of her and upgraded to an 06 TL.

As you guys can see, I go through wheels like underwear
