Lowering X Runners

I've got a buddy I work with who has an '05 X Runner. He's currently running a spring compressor type device.. ha I've never seen anything like it until his. It's to something you can get from autozone that compresses or extendes the front springs, yeah sounds sketchy. On the rear he's running a reverse block. Well he's been having some real bad issues as I suspsected he would before he put it all in hah. Anyway does anyone know the best set up under $1,200 to lower it in a more safer and less destructive way? He's been looking at airbags for the rears, but what would you run up front? Can you buy shorter springs for up front that are a tad bit stiffer that you could use in conjuntion with with the oem coilover? I've done quiet a bit of research on lifting our trucks but no clue for lowering. Thought I'd save some time by posting it up, so sorry if this has been answered. Lemme know what you all think please

I'm sure there are others with more expertise in this area...

http://tundraracing.com/xrunnerdropkit.htm

http://www.sittinsic.com/?page_id=27

I've read stuff about C2C, SOS and DJM, but I don't know the specifics. Custom springs, lowering blocks, dropped spindles, spacers, etc...

go on Xrunner underground. good info there

basics:

1.75" Drops
-Sittin sic drop coils around $300. uses shorter, stiffer spring on stock strut. blocks or composite leafs out back.
-SOS Drop Spring perches. $300 (The tundra racing link posted above) ride is very similar to stock. blocks out back
-C2C Spindle Spacers. No longer in production. Camber problems as well.

3" drops
DJM front Upper and Lower control arms. Very Hard install. 3" front, 3" or 4" rear. with 4" rear drop, you must notch the frame. Prices Vary on kit options.

I have the complete Sittin Sic kit like Coupe the only challenge atm is getting ahold of the guy who runs the company.

If your buddy is interested I'd suggest checking this thread on XRunner Underground. An X owner is sellin his never installed track kit for $1100 with rear QA1 12 way adjustable shocks. Track kit is the best one as it includes front and rear sways which makes for a whole new truck.

I wouldn't even put the weight of the vehicle on the springs with them compressed. I'm wondering if this is what the op's friend did or if there is something else he used.
