    They came with bulbs in them but I didn't check to see if they were good I just assumed so. Guess I'll have to check that out, and I'm pretty sure my relay is working bc it's clicking when I try to turn the fogs on.

    No really that was pretty cool, took me a minute to figure what was going on in the first pic, then the rest made sense.

    Jdmgen8 did you upgrade your rear sway bar? Trying to get parts ready for when I lower the car after winter here in NY. Also any info you could give me on camber arms, plates and or bolts

    Thanks I thought it was a pretty good opportunity to get some cool pics, the ones I posted in the show off thread actually turned out better with more flames.

    I've never had any problems with camber on my car and I've had it lowered on teins and now on ground controls, as a matter of fact I've never even needed an alignment it has driven as straight as before. I've yet to get a rear sway bar but I'm planning to get a whiteline rear sway bar soon. I do have a trd front strut bar that I feel made a significant difference after I lowered the car. Steering is very tight, handles amazing in turns I love it. Whiteline also has a front strut bar that seems like it'd be nice.

    202 is beautiful, I would love owning an 8th in that color. Does that trim paint have a rubbery quality to it?

    Yeah it is I've been wanting to have my car painted this color for a long time I'm glad my car is already black. And no it doesn't I thought that it would but there was another one called bumper paint by the same company and same green can that looked like it might be.

    No problem, just make sure to use some fine grit sand paper or an SOS pad to knock off the loose peeling trim before painting.

    From what I've researched they are the thickest strongest sway bar for our cars but unfortunately they only make the rear not the front which is why I went with a good strong strut bar in the front. Check out whitelines website.

    Ok cool I was trying to look up some stuff for ya but couldn't find much which is weird bc I thought prizms and corollas were identical for the most part. But I did find a couple things for your car you might like.

    Yea at first glance I was told that they were the exact same cars. I guess if I could ever get someone with a 8th gen corolla inside a garage for a few hrs we could start to distinguish the subtle differences. Thanks alot for your help
