Stock struts on 1.5 inch lowering springs all still strong and working. Front bumper, hood and fenders look like they were hit by a claymore blast but some dent removal and a coat of paint will take care of that this summer. Still on the original brake pads and rotors with plenty of life left still. Big section of the bolster in my driver seat missing where the seat bet got caught between it and the door and I got a little vigorous in pulling it out. Most of my interior rattles, squeaks and squawks seem to have died of old age or just simply worn into place. Still haven't done the plugs and have noticed zero drop in performance or mileage. Original battery works well even in the coldest weather when I leave the dome light on overnight. All four wheels still unblemished by curb rash or stone hits (I have no idea how that has stayed that way).
gives me hope that i can get away with 99% of what the stealership is trying to tell me lol i probably will do most of it this summer but itll be in my driveway on my own time and dollar. for the throw out bearing, what is that and what do i need to look/hear for? lol and do you have any other suspension components for the 1.5" drop? i was looking at getting coils for a 1.5" drop this summer and wondering what else is needed to gather all the essential parts

The TOB is the bearing that disengages the clutch on a MT. There was an issue with the lube on the pre 16 cars and the bearing can start to squeal and eventually seize and ruin the clutch. If it starts to go there will be very loud squeals especial on start up. You can make the noise come and go by pushing the clutch. If it starts to go you will have no doubt what it is. Not an issue if you have an AT.


To drop anything over an inch you need camber bolts for the front and lower control arms in the rear. That is about it though. There are some very good write ups in the suspension sub forum here.


Of all the items in the 100K service having the brakes done is probably the most important. It is just an inspect, clean and lube which you can do yourself if so inclined. If you have an AT you will want the fluid changed which is quite the process for this car. Not hard to do really but you need to make sure you follow all the steps.

Top hats may or may not be OK depending on what you go with. Check the requirements of what you are looking at.
If you haven't seen these before here is a link to all of the service manuals (thanks to @Ultramaroon they are easy to find) which will walk you through each process step by step.

115k right now and I haven't had any serious problems with the car other than upgrading from a failing clutch although that was due to my early bad habits with riding the clutch. I shift better now. Also had one of the belts replaced due to a crack.

Got it at 12k back in 2014 and has been my daily as of December last year. Been switching between it and my Ram 1500 I got in November for my Daily drive. Transmission, Diff, Brake and regular oil changed on regular intervals. All the basic maintenance done by myself.

I plan on getting new brakes and tires in the near future.

IIRC you have the TRD springs on your car, right? Did you install camber bolts? Were there any alignment issues?

I have a set of the TRD springs sitting over there in the corner in a box. I didn't think I needed camber bolts, but your comment sounds like they might put it right at the limit.

Daily driver, winter driven, 182K and counting. No serious issues, just regular maintenance. Brakes, wheel bearings, oil, filter, etc. Had it in to the dealer at 100K for major service, and will be taking in again around 200K.
