Spring Swap: Honda Fit springs on Toyota Yaris. Who knew?
A member of YarisWorld.com has found out that springs from the 2007-2008 Honda Fit will, um, "fit" the on the 2007+ Toyota Yaris. How strange is that?
Member "kngrsll" has a setup using Ground Control Honda Fit front coilovers (375 lbs/6.6 kg) and T1R Honda Fit rear springs (342 lbs/6.1 kg). Unfortunately the rears are not adjustable due to the perches. However, he says that if you had spring perches from a Yairs-specific kit (Tein, KSport, Megan Racing, etc.), it should be adjustable. Allegedly, he says a bunch of other springs will fit, too.
I find this pretty interesting, and it could open up more applications to Yaris owners looking to lower their cars.
