I really like what you've done to my car 8-) It almost looks like a completely different Vibe. I really like the 2.4L graphics on the doors. The color, font & location are perfect on a red car! I may have to add those to mine in the spring. Awesome work :D

thanks! Yea your car looks good like this! ;) ;) yes the springs definitely add new character and life to the car. though the 2.4L decal could go a tad lower on the door.

The Vibe looks amazing lowered Cole!

I wish the TRD springs would work on the GT because a mild drop like they provide would be much more my style than the drop you have.

After seeing your new signature, I am thinking our Vibes need some yellow fog light overlays...

i do believe they do have a set of TRD's for the Second Gen Matrix's, and i do believe they do fit our GT's.

there is a web site i did come across searching for the overlays. i came across This Link for some pretty neat stuff for the 2nd Gen Vibe and Trix.

Unfortunately, the 2009+ Matrix TRD lowering springs will not fit the AWD, GT or XRS because they all have the Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) :(. The same also goes for the 2009+ Matrix TRD rear anti-sway bar :(.

Hmmm... thanks for the link! I had checked out Lamin-X, but they don't offer custom fit fog light overlays for the 2009-2010 Vibe GT, only headlight and taillight overlays. I am seriously considering some yellow fog light overlays once I get the issues with my DDM fog light HIDs taken care of!

I bit the bullet and ordered a pair of the yellow fog light overlays from Headlight Armor! $22.17 with shipping. I will definitely post pictures and all once I get receive them and get them installed ;).

Posted some pictures of the fog light overlays in my Garage thread. I am very happy with them! They look great, were a very decent price and installation went really smoothly. They even included a coupon code to save 10% on my next order which will work out nicely for ordering them for my mom's Vibe. I highly recommend them.

I have no idea. I posted on here, MO and Toyota Nation about doing LEDs in the turn signals and never got any solid responses on whether the 2nd gens use a CK socket or not and more info about what flasher was needed, etc. I ended up just getting Stealth Auto chrome amber bulbs for the front and rear marker lights because it was so much easier.

Been Long over due for an update.

since ive last posted, i have found the flasher relay location, behind the change door on the left by the door.

Early Feb Bearing in the alternator went out on me, 733 dollar repair (complete BS), purchased new tires (3), went on two drives, one back in June of 2014, some pics are here: http://www.jwimaging.exposuremanager.co ... 3_30_18_3# ) Then again in September, this time i lead a group of cars for what was called Texas 86 Day that i was helping with.
2015:
Last month had to replace water pump. Water Pump went out on my way back from Dallas destroying the belt, damaging the tensioner as well as pulling out the crank shaft some, that ended up being a 975 repair...

The front turn signals are CK, 3157bulbs. On the 3 wire plug, the two outside wires are the ones you jumper with the resistor to prevent the fast blink.

Damn, that sucks Cole :(. I knew about the water pump issue from FB, but didn't know about the bearing in the alternator. Also, I wasn't aware of all the damage the water pump had caused. I am very lucky that mine was just leaking and that I got it replaced before anything else happened.

On the plus side, the Vibe looks great :cool:! Any mods you're currently in the process of getting, installing, etc.?

yea the belt fell behind the water pump which cause all that damage. yea the alt scared me crazy, and i thought it was my power steering then closer look the 09 dont have fluid power steering, its electrical... it was not a good time when it went out.

i am about to finish the LED lighting and turn signals, now that i have found the flasher relay i can fully upgrade my lighting. i want to do more but at the same time i am wanting to upgrade the car to an FRS in the near future, like end of the year soon, if not then itll be intake upgrade time and a new head unit. but this is all until i get back out of dept from the repair and my trip up to st charles. but for sure im finishing the LED lighting as well as getting those yellow overlays you got for the fogs.

Does that flasher relay seem easy to access and have enough room to pull the prongs, etc, now that you found it??
That is what I wanted to do, rather than the resistors, and the flasher module is available affordably, I just could never find the sucker.


I did LED tower bulbs for the signals up front, and so far and sticking with chrome dome for the rear signals.
I put the spider expanding leds in for the rear brake light, and I'm trying to open the light to put a second one in where the reverse bulb goes, and then removing the reflectors for the rear so it will all look clear

If I like it, I'll lose rear backup lights and may use one of those european led switching bulbs that show white constant when on and also flash yellow, and put that in the rear turn signal socket and splice the hot reverse light up to it turning it into a combo socket

Yea it looks like it isnt going to be a pita to remove, its easily visable from the lower left drawer/coin holder on the dash. i havent fully investigated it just yet, but it looks simple enough to remove with no issue.

dang you went all out and going above and beyond with the led add ons lol. but that european fog light sounds like a cool idea!

as long as you have some play with the wires, the flasher should be easy as it's the old school plug type.
getting them on the new one if there isn't much room will be the test

yeah the euro bulb seems like a good plug and play solution, because you can buy bulbs for the turn signal socket size, and you can get a 3 wire socket pigtail that is cross compatible. i haven't seen anyone doing this though, probably because typical running lights for that purpose are not bright enough for rear lights, so you have to get the expensive high power led bulbs.

i had a cracked tail light so i had a new spare one to surgeon on to experiment with.
