The springs dropped the car evenly and the ride quality is smooth. It can closely be comparable to the stock 2012 ride quality if not just a small notch lower IMO. If the springs were to drop the rear any lower, the rear would sag. If the front were any lower, it would look good, but it will give the car a "rake" look. Please keep in mind, I barely drive the car so I doubt the springs have had the chance to really settle in, I barely put 200 miles on them since the install. Overall though im completly satisfied with Swift Sport Springs! ... for now, till i get some more flow to go the BC/Swift combo so I can drop the car a tad bit lower. Thanks for checking up on us FIGS! Thats what I call top notch customer service! You the man bro!

The full vehicle pictures really help. Thanks for the follow up post. I care about what we sell and strive for perfection or at least consistent expectations

So thanks to the OP for this link

I know this is an old thread, but I recently acquired a 2012 IS F and do not like the front wheel gap - the rears doesn't seem too bad... So I wanted to know if anyone just installed the springs in the front only. What difference in ride quality/comfort, handling, and looks of it?

Would it be ok just to install the springs in the front or best to do the rear also?

also, what is the stock spring rates?

There is no need if I am not doing it for track, race, etc... only for stance, asthetics, and elimination of front wheel gap

There are swift springs for 2012+ now. Juanca had problems since he was the guinea pig and put 08-11 Swift springs on his 2012 ISF. The 2012s have a different spring and perch.
