$450

I have confirmed with JDM Source that these are the ones similar to the TEIN HA's. These are the stiffer of the two TRD's that were produced. Probably a bit stiff for the street, otherwise I'd grab them. FYI TEIN made these for TRD, they are definitely quality units.

Here are the spring PN's:

48131-SP000-10 (front) (10kg/mm or 98.0N/mm)
48131-SP000-08 (rear) (8kg/mm or 78.4N/mm)

For reference the "street" versions use an 8kg/mm front and a 6kg/mm rear.

Not for me personally, but that's a wicked deal.

So Lithia can source the softer springs from TRD Japan for $78 each, but there is a 4 month wait. But, if you wanted the softer setup, you could get these, then move the rear springs to the front and get new softer rear springs from Lithia. So it's doable.

Here's the thread for more info in Lithia's forum: http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?51559-TRD-spring-price-req

But, not for me.

Cheap!! ... these are usually over $750 for a decent set.

But best reserved for the track or a weekend car.

Dude, you realize you can just buy Tein compatible springs and run custom spring rates right?

My TRD coilovers on my MR2 run 400lb in the front and 800lb in the rear, and my streetability is GREAT. In addition on my SW20, my TRD coilovers take inserts, that means theyre rebuildable by ME.

So, Yeah, thats a stupid good price for some TRD coilovers. If I had a 205 Id get them just on the chance they ARE good.

Good point, didn't think of going with other brand springs. But still I'd be in for at minimum $650-700 when shipping is all in, plus might have to rebuild them. I'm not totally sure which route I'm going yet with suspension, although I've got to get to it some time soon. For now, I've got to dedicate money to my 165 before I can spend on the 205.
