Default lowering rear of 2010 IS250C

What would be the easiest way to lower my ISC 2-4 inches in the rear only.
The car sits a little too high for me.

To be able to lower your car that much you'd need coilover springs in the back. Not sure if they are sold in pairs. Some brands of adjustable coils are KW, Megan, Tein, BCR, and a few others. You could put air ride in the rear only, but you'll need an air tank in your trunk.

yea 2-4 inches is more than any springs. I believe H&R gives the best drop, but that only gives you 1.6 inch drop in the rear. Your best bet is to go either coilovers or air

I would imagine droping the back only 4inches would look kinda bad and maybe even change the way the car handles. Jus guessing on the handling part.

Just trying to make the car look a little better. It seems to be sitting a little too high in the back but that's the way Lexus makes it. But a little lower would look a lot cooler.

Thanks for all the replies

Just don't let your car have reverse rake (where the car angles up), looks ridiculous.

You're goign to need to buy a full set of springs or coilovers either way you go, so you might as well do front and rear.

Coiovers will allow you to adjust the height to where you want it. Might be the best route for what it sounds like you want.

If you want some help feel free to shoot us a PM

Drop only in the rear? the front stock has an awful lot of wheel gap, like 4-6 inches. I forget what it is but is nasty compared to the rear. If you want a static drop, go coils like the others have said. The coilovers for the sedans will work with the vert.

GL, and post some pics.

stock front with 4in rear drop = tons of laughs, and yes they will be laughing at you and not with you.
