Description
 
The 2010 & 2011 Toyota Prius Lowering Springs Sustec allow for the perfect drop for your 2010 & 2011 Toyota Prius, and creates an ideal balance. These springs will lower your Prius while increasing handling potential and maintaining ride comfort. (Set of 4)
Features

These 2010 & 2011 Toyota Prius Coil Springs increase your Prius spring rate about 10-15% in order to compensate for the shortened amount of suspension travel without over stiffening the spring rate and therefore affecting the ride quality of shock lifespan.

The TDF153 coil springs have an extremely low stance, as well as high quality performance and comfort. These coil springs for your
Toyota Prius offer a drop while still retaining the quality ride characteristics that your Prius is so well known for.

All coil springs are designed using the Sustec Technology, which is a series of manufacturing methods developed to create a stronger, thinner, and lighter spring using only high tensile steel-without adding additional elements that likely would affect the quality of durability and even price. Furthermore, they have 2100n/m of tensile strength, which is the highest strength ever achieved in a coil spring.


These springs give an estimated 1.0-1.5” drop.



Performance - via a combination of progressive spring rates and a lower center of gravity:

  • Top speed - Increased due to reduced aero drag.
  • Slalom speed - Increased due to reduced roll, better steering response.
  • Lane-changing performance - Enhanced due to reduced roll, better steering response.
  • Braking 60-0 mph - Shortened due to reduced dive.
  • Lateral g (skid pad) - Increased due to reduced dive.
  • Acceleration time 0-60 mph - Reduced due to reduced weight transfer.
  • Road course lap times - Reduced due to all of the above.
  • Conclusion: Your vehicle is transformed in virtually every aspect of performance & handling. It becomes much more enjoyable to drive, with better steering feel and response, enhanced cornering speed, more secure braking and impressive high-speed stability, all retaining a compliant, comfortable ride.

Safety

  • Lane-changing performance - Improved due to reduced roll, better steering response.
  • Braking 60-0 mph - Shortened due to reduced dive.
  • High speed stability - combination of progressive spring rates & a lower center of gravity reduces vehicle bouncing motion, thus minimizing uneven road surface disturbance.

Comfort

  • Improved smoothness even on rough roads.
  • Reduces that cushiony/airy feel of stock suspension by reducing bouncing/pitching.

Mileage

  • Average MPG on straight roads - Enhanced due to reduced aero drag.
  • Average MPG on corners - Enhanced as you can now enter a corner with higher speeds (utilize its momentum more) which translates to less acceleration required as you exit the corner.
  • Better aerodynamics (due to lower center of gravity) reduces underbody drag which translates to better MPG substantially, since that at highway speeds, 60% of the energy goes to push air out of the way.

Lowering coils May 21, 2012
Reviewer: Richard Settle from Elon, NC United States  
Labor for installation was very reasonable
Immproves handling as well as desired lowering. Not too much, just what I was looking for.
