Default Coils

Want to raise my CT200h by about an inch. Any suggestions? Have already swithed tires to the 215/50/17. Thanks for your help.

Buy a Subaru. Seriously, the only possibility may be coil overs that allow you to adjust suspension height. You need to check the specifications to see if they allow you to raise it above stock height as almost everyone buys them to lower the car. They are expensive, close to a thousand or more.

Why do you want to raise it? I have an F-sport and do not have many issues with it even though it is an inch lower than the regular model.

I don't think the F sport is lower than the regular model, should be same height

It is lower if you have the F-Sport suspension with F-Sport lower springs. It is obvious if you look at both. The wheel gap is much smaller on the F-Sport. If you do not believe me, check out this thread: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ct-2...t-springs.html

oh don't get me wrong, not that I don't believe you, just want to make sure everyone is on the same page

the F sport lowering springs you mentioned, as far as I know, only comes with the CT200h F sport Special Edition, it also comes with other extra F sports goodies

if you install it afterward, it doesn't make it a factory standard equipment, just like the F sport trident wheels, lowering springs and sway bars are not part of the $1k F sport package, those are count as dealer install accessories

all the other standard F sport you see on dealer lots, those are the same height as a regular CT

Thanks. I have an F-Sport SE and was unaware the suspension upgrades were a dealer sold/installed option. It still rides better than my old 2008 MINI Cooper S and handles almost as well, although much slower.
