Toyota Yaris 3-Door
The final test for the 5-Door Yaris was a spring test for the Tanabe NF210 Spring. Fitment was just fine.
And this was the ride height that resulted. The NF210 Spring gives the car a slight drop (not as low as the DF210 Springs) and retains comfortable ride qualities.

Toyota Yaris 5-Door
The DF210 Spring was the next part to be tested on the 5-Door Toyota Yaris. Fitment of the spring on the chassis was fine.
And this is the ride height that resulted.

Earlier, we installed the Sustec Pro S-0C Coilovers at their lowest setting. Now, it was time to measure the height at the tallest setting. This way, we could collect data for the total available height adjustment range.
And so, the total adjustment range was noted, which ended testing for this Sustec Pro S-0C coilover. Notice that the front height appears to be taller than the rear. It's been decided that the height range of the coilover will be tuned in order to establish an even height balance when set to the tallest setting on all 4 coilovers.
And a spy was found.

So, with the fitment being just the way we wanted it, it was time to do a bit of sound testing. It measured in at under 93db; perfect for the Medalion Touring line of exhaust systems.
Decibel testing was done at various RPMs throught the total rev range.
