Those worked very well on my xA, which is basically a very similar chassis. I think the front strut brace is overkill though for an xB. Rear sway bar definitely a good idea, and the TRD shocks and springs should actually improve the ride.

"shocks and springs should actually improve the ride"
That's good to hear, I'm not interested in a bone-jarring handling machine, just something better than stock. I'd stick with the 16" rims with better tires (eventually). And yes, the strut brace would likely be the lowest handling improvement/dollar, but you get to look at it every time you pop the hood!

Yeah but it does get in the way of servicing (not too bad).
You'll probably suffer more harshness from the 16" wheels than from the TRD springs and struts, which are actually designed to be MORE compliant (but in a GOOD way). They seem more responsive and respond faster.
I also tried the DC Sports Muffler, but that was too annoying on the highway.

The 16 inchers are the stock size, I'd just go with alloy instead of steel. Optional are 18", I think, and they would really mess with the ride.

Keeps the shock towers from collapsing. Keeps front end straight , should have no problem with windshield warp and breaking/cracking as was/is the problem with early xB. Suggest you instal Sway Bar also. Better cornering etc.
#298 of 317 Options for xA
Mar 28, 2006 (12:37 pm)
As I wait patiently for dealer to locate my new 06 Scion xA (Flint Mica, manual) I am browsing through the dealer installed accessories booklet. Wondering if I could get some suggestions/recommendations on which items experienced Scion owners feel are worth having installed? I am far from being an auto expert but I would like to get the best ride, acceleration and sound quality from my new toy. The items I'm looking at are: TRD Cold Air Induction, Bazooka subwoofer, Rear Swaybar. Thanks so much for any input!
