After some extensive research on available suspension choices for the IS350, I decided that springs were not going to cut it for me.. So I knew it was going to be coilovers.
I looked at all those choices as well and still couldn’t make my decision.
Well with some more digging and help from Javylsu, we found a coil not mentioned much here on CL..
The company is called D2 Racing Sport. (no relation to any other D2 company out there)
The RS Coilover System is a 36 way dampener and rebound adjustable monotube full coilover system. The setup has separate height and preload adjustments allowing for optimal adjustment and allowing full strut travel at all times along. Mounts are constructed of 6061 powder coated aluminum. Rubber bushings allow for a comfortable ride. Threads are teflon coated to prevent rust.
Here are all the pics of the install…
Special Thanks to Tommy @ Music Box in South El Monte for doing an EXCELLENT job with my install…
Final Drop numbers were about an inch lower than the Lexus Sport Tuned suspension.
Which works out perfect for me as my daily driver..
Front Left = 25.50 inches
Front Right = 25.50 inches
Rear Left = 25.50 inches
Rear Right = 25.50 inches
So far I have had them on a week and I am very impressed with the overall ride quality and functionality of these coils.
For sure they are better than the stock springs & shocks..!!
As a side note these are Nitorgen Gas filled & I look forward to them lasting many years before they need any type of service.
I will also post up some better pictures of the car tomorrow... The weather has been terrible with on/off rain all week here in So Cal..
