2010 Prius Suspension Upgrade – Prius Springs & Prius Chassis Stiffener

We have the pleasure of installing some Prius Suspension Upgrades. They include the new Prius Tanabe DF210 lowering springs and Prius Tanabe Sustec front Under Brace.

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 little 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.

Tanabe Sustec Under Brace-Total Tuning for Chassis. By connecting specific points of the undercarriage of your Toyota Prius, this under brace reinforces the strength and stability of the chassis. 2010 Prius 2 Point Under Brace is often overlooked, but the Prius experiences flexing of the unibody under various handling loads. Twisting of the chassis is also very common.

The Prius under Brace prevents this unwanted behavior by connecting specific points of the undercarriage to reinforce the chassis. Unique internal double-i-beam construction is highly rigid and lightweight, so the chassis may be significantly reinforced without adding surplus weight.

The under brace (especially when used with the strut tower bars) will further improve handling and chassis strength. Excellently constructed with a high quality design and fitment, this under brace was made to fit the 2005-2010 Toyota Prius.

The 2010 Toyota Prius Lowering Springs Sustec allows for the perfect drop for your 2010 Toyota Prius, and creates an ideal balance. These springs will lower your Prius, while increasing handling potential, and maintaining ride comfort.
These 2010 Toyota Prius DF210 Super Lowdown Coil Springs raise your Prius’ spring rate about 10-15% in order to compensate for the shortened amount of suspension travel, without over stiffening the spring rate and therefore improving the ride quality.

The Prius coil springs have an extremely low stance, as well as high quality performance and comfort. These coil springs for your Toyota Prius offer a large drop while still retaining the quality ride characteristics that your Prius is so well known for.
