Default 2009 Obsidian is250 build from Dallas

Well I got my car back in august of last year and don't really have any pictures of when she was all stock but I got all interior LEDs and my car already came with HIDs so I decided on plastidipping my emblems (I know, I know)

And then next was the road magnet springs! It was a pain getting them in but we ended up finishing at about 1am...

Then next came red outs + 8k fog lights.. I bought 6k for my headlights but one of them wouldn't stop flickering so I just put it the original ones. I don't have pictures of those but you all know what they look like haha. I also shaved off the "lexus" and "is250" because I liked it a lot better..

And where we are today, Megan Ez Street Coilovers! Got all 4 corners maxed out but then soon came to realization that the front was a mistake cuz I was eating up the inside of my fenders and tires. Couldn't even turn half way and just scraped everything on my way home!

Fresh out the shop, I thought the back was too high but by the time I got home it settled in nicely..

We had to raise up the front about an inch/inch and a half just because I could not drive anywhere like that. Also pulled out the fenders just a little with the phone book method lol.. Definitely helped out a lot. I don't have any new pictures of after we raised it up in the day light but my homie did snap a shot while we were hitting up in n out!

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I'm also in that area! I'm surprised I don't see your car around. Is that the In-N-Out at Firewheel in the last picture?

Crazy!

No rubbing at all in the rear, the front is gonna need some modifications tho if you want to go that low and be able to turn and all that good stuff

great pics!

How long have you been on the Megan EZs?

How's the ride holding up?

Did you install them yourself? If not, do you have a shop that you recommend?

Sorry for all the questions!

My wife is "considering" letting me drop our IS250, but I have to to some research first haha

BTW, we're in the DFW area as well, out in Rockwall
