Sure the price was a major contributor and the fact that he wouldn’t ship out on time had me on the hunt for another manufacturer. So now you have Prius Lifting Springs customers unhappy due to delays…

Initially, there was an agreement that all inquiries related to Prius upgrades would be directed to PriusOverlanding.com, which started off successfully. However, complications arose a few months later when the partner company stopped using the agreed-upon PriusOverlanding.com shipping labels, opting to use their own instead. This change led to potential customers contacting the manufacturer directly. This not only undercut PriusOverlanding.com by diverting customers but also resulted in delayed shipments from the manufacturer, seemingly to hinder PriusOverlanding.com’s operations.

However, there was a positive turn when the company that was originally intended to manufacture the springs was unable to fulfill the order and referred PriusOverlanding.com to another provider in the Valley. This new partnership has now cleared the way for PriusOverlanding.com to develop and market the four-corner Prius Lifting Springs, potentially enhancing their market position and product offerings.

The other sad part is when we all know people who mention the name of another Prius owner as the one who gave them the idea… there is noooo way these owners did not know about this site and the springs, google will show you this site ranks high among Prius search engine keywords… so when I say the pretentious Prius owner, I need to add the word self-centered. Having the energy of knowing you aren’t supporting the one who made it possible, intentionally is bonkers! I hope they don’t sleep well in their Prius EVER and get stuck every time they take their car off the pavement.

It’s quite ironic; my journey with these springs started back in 2021 and they were available for purchase not long after. It’s puzzling because one Prius owner mentioned discovering these springs while browsing the internet, where my links prominently appear at the top of the search results. There’s no way he could have been unaware of my site or PriusOverlanding.com selling the Gen 2 Springs since I wrote about them in January 2021. However, his Facebook post from 2022 suggests otherwise. If you can’t see that this oversight was intentional, I’m not sure what else to think. Why was there no mention of me? It seems to stem from all the drama initiated by that Doctor Prius guy. I had to correct his misuse of the term ‘scam’ among other derogatory terms. It’s troubling how one can spread misinformation about a person or company, and it’s simply accepted. After he was included in a defamation suit, those comments mysteriously disappeared from the internet. It’s clear he knew exactly where the specs and ideas originated. It’s quite shocking, really. click here for the link to his video!

I found that Valley Springs manufactured Prius Lifting Springs over time settled a lot more than I wanted. you will lose a good 3″ from the height that you have after installation of their springs over time. When I noticed how much they settled after some really good usage, the testing of another manufactures springs began. the one I wanted in the beginning finally had time on the calendar. initially, it was just Valley, he was all that was left with an open calendar and the process used while wonderful for larger heavier trucks, I found to not be ideal for the Prius. I couldn’t imagine that a large diameter spring for a larger vehicle would react differently than one the size of a Prius based on the manufacturing method. But hey, I’m learning by testing. I just couldn’t imagine them settling this much.
