Today we had the pleasure of installing the new Tanabe DF210 lowering springs and new Tanabe Sustec front Under Brace on a local customer’s 2010 Toyota Prius. The DF210 springs offer a 1.3″ drop in front and 1.6″ in the rear and the ride quality is very close to stock – just a tad stiffer. The Sustec Under Brace also helps the overall feel of the car by stiffening up the front end more and reducing flex in the chassis – plus it looks cool when you are under your car doing oil changes!

Here are a few pics we snapped during the install.
Tanabe USA has announced two new products for the 2010 and up Toyota Prius that are now ready to ship.
SUSTEC PRO S-0C is for those who desire both high performance and maximum comfort from a suspension system. S-0C is ideal for performance and street applications.
Dispelling a popular belief that a firm or harsh ride is a sign of a performance suspension, the short stroke, shortened case dampener of the S-0C is extremely unique in that its internal construction allows it to deliver superior handling without sacrificing strength or ride comfort.
Unique double-cylinder design allows for full suspension stroke within the shortened shock body while Low-pressure gasses ensure smooth rebound characteristics for additional ride comfort.

The strut tower bar is arguably one of the least expensive upgrades that can provide a very high degree of benefit that is felt immediately after installing. Often one of the first modifications performed on a vehicle, the strut tower brace improves handling and stability of a vehicle.
The Sustec Tower Bar has been very popular due to its low price and high functionality. By connecting the strut towers, and creating a balance, the shocks are prevented from independently moving and causing small changes in suspension geometry.
