I want to lower my iM but Toyota doesn't offer lowering springs for the car yet and probably won't considering they're phasing out the iM and bringing in the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. I have a 2018 iM and I need suggestions on where to purchase lowering springs/kits for my car. I looked at some Eibach performance springs, but they were for the base model Corolla, not the hatch. I don't know if that matters or not? Can someone please let me know what they think, I am new to the iM and I think my car would look bad*ss lowered...>:D

The Corolla sedan really only shares the engine (ECO model) and the interior with the iM. The suspension is completely different.

You can use anything for the tC suspension though, do a search on here for more info.

There are quite a few posts about this, two or three vendors offer this.

Most of the suspension is an exact match to the Scion tC2 and the European Auris.

Be careful using springs for the tC though since the tC has a larger and heavier engine. Because of this the front may not sit properly with the lighter iM engine. I would just get springs that are designed for the iM from Tanabe - JDM NF210 Lowering Springs or RS*R also has some that lower it a little more than the Tanabe.

I just ordered a set of the Tanabe springs on eBay for $209.95 with free shipping.

You can run many aftermarket springs, theres h&r, rsr, tanabe and many stores carry them. If your from the states i would reccommend just researching Scion iM springs US but if you are from canada i can help you out with some sites
