    They don't sell parts for it =( Last time I saw a lowered Avalon the guy said he used camry springs. I'd like to get the shocks with adjustable height, soft/hard adjustment and the camber angle adjustment but can't find it. The fact that it is automatic turns me off, but it hauls ass!

    The suspension is sooo soft! That's why I want to upgrade the suspension, not so much to lower it.
    Every time I step on the gas it feels like the front has taken off from the ground and steering will make it go out of control while accelerating.

    check this photoshop out. I was bored... it is not my style to have black hoods and trunks but...

    Its an Avalon!! Its a luxury car, not a sports sedan. I would leave the suspension and the motor stock. I've seen a lip kit that looks really nice, I think its OEM. And then maybe some lighting upgrades. But its a great car.

    Don't you drive a modded corolla? The Corolla is an economy car and not a sports sedan.

    The car comes from factory with self leveling HID headlights.
    And it has reclining back seats.

    I considered the yellow fog-light tints
    18" wheels
    Lowering it and stiffing up the suspension

    I like the debadging idea. I would only remove the left "toyota" and right "touring" though.

    If you look at it that way, the start of the tuner scene started with economy cars because the people at the time could only afford an economy car and made the best of what they had. So that's what I have, if you want to look at it that way.

    But in this case he has a nice car, that would be nice stock. I just wouldn't mess with the suspension on an avalon. That's just my opinion.

    it's the one kit i have seen run reliably on scions, but of course that's msrp. you can probably find it installed for less than that.

    VIP = not sports. From the looks of the photochop, it did not look like he was going sporty at all.
