It's true what GVille said with alignment but I never really did that. The shocks won't make a difference in tire wear if you'd had the springs in that long. It'll just ride a bit stiffer.

Cool thanks guys I had n alignment after I put the springs in but I don't rly need one if I'm keeping the same fsport springs n just changing the shocks from stock to fsport... I was talking to my guy at my local lex dealer about install on the shocks today n he was telling me they were having issues with lexus recalling the rear shocks BC of leakage issues.... Is this true? I'll be so mad if I just dropped all this $ n theyll send me a recalled product

^I've not heard of the leakage issue. Ask the dealership's opinion on needing that alignment after the install.

Thanks man... If u can ask aroumd about the rear shock leakage issue and if anyone else has heard of this... Id appreciate it... And to answer your question i was just about to do the install... I had the rotors pads ss lines dust shields and freshly painted calipers all ready to go but when I measured the inside lip of the new rims it was a clearance of only a couple mm so I didn't wanna risk pulling the car apart putting the new calipers on and then having the inner part of the rim rub so I'm just waiting until next summer when I buy a new set of 19s for the car n then I'll do the swap... I did just install my new garax 8k hid bulbs and beat sonic nav DVD bypass tho... Def a sweet upgrade... And I'll get some pics up soon... Just gotta clean her up and new pics will be posted shortly...

So I spoke to the guy at Sewell and Lexus put a stop to the manufacturing of the f sport shocks and I again spoke to my guy at my local Lexus and he said its def due to rear shock leakage... He said If u don't have them in stock you won't and can't get them anymore BC of this issue so I'm gonna return the ones I just got BC I don't want to install them and have issues down the line... Any suggestions on shocks to go with my fsport springs? In the meantime with all this refunded $ I was considering getting the gfx rear lip but im not a huge fan of the extra seam on the rear bumper... And no I don't feel like molding it on lol plus it mean I hafta take off the diffuser I just installed and reinstall it on the lip... Idk what do u guys think? What shocks to get and gfx rear or no?

Probably 225/35/19s up front and 245(maybe 255)/35/19 in the rear.

Call Koni and see what they recommend. You cannot go wrong with Koni products.
