Does anyone have some OEM springs they can help me out with? My little brothers Xi decided to break one.

If I take mine out soon, I can give it to you but I haven't decided what I will be replacing it with though. I think me and alton noticed a small crack on one spring while doing the brakes.

Wait, I am not sure if my springs will fit the xi though.

Thanks guys. It looks like the sport springs don't fit the Xi models.

On another side note. Does anyone have an extra set of front corners that are the screw in type for a coupe?

My XI springs should fit just fine if you want them. Also I have screw in corners from my sedan, not sure about fitment for the coupe

I was wrenching my 4Runner today and realized that someone absconded with my 12mm deep-well socket . . .Someone owes me a beer next meet-up.

Hey! Anyone here running a koni sport/eibach set up on an XI? It's time to do my suspension and I thought about going this route over oem. From what I've read, the drop and ride don't seem to be too drastic from the stock ride. Seems like a nice set up...

Anyway, just wondering if anyone has any opinions based on what they've done and what else I should be looking at (part-wise) when I do the swap.

Silvet xi is the only guy in the local forum that i know of who has his xi lowered. You may have more luck searching through the xi subforum. Search before you ask in the xi forum though or they may be kinda abrasive about it.

Yeah, I've got a PM out to a few guys in the XI forum that are using that set up. Just wondering if anyone local was using it and how it did here considering our weather etc. thanks! I'll shoot silvet a PM.

Hey Brandon -- I actually did! One was out of pure luck, driving around. The other I had to do a little more digging. Both of them will be featured on pro4m.com in the next few weeks -- thanks for asking!
