They ride better than stock... suck up bumps better... stiffer on corners... and ride LOW. I honestly love them so much.

Looks much better with the drop. Nice job. The Tanabe quality is awesome too.

They are pretty easy to put in, you'll need sockets, a spring compressor, and it helps to have a clamp from a front end kit to pop out the tie rod knuckle (it's attached to the shock assembly on our car). It will also help if you have a gear drive type wrench because the 3 top bolts that hold the strut in are hard to get to and you have to be able to just stick a tool in there and remove them.

I was able to do this myself and I'm not a mechanic. The car seems to have held it's alignment as well.

The 16"s are smart. You will hold your better gas mileage.

I'm interested to see if anyone tries the DF-210 Tanabe springs on their iQ. It's more of a drop, just not sure if there is enough clearance on the strut.
