Thumbs up 2012-2013 Lowering/ Drop spring options?

I remember this was talked about sometime time earlier this year. At the time there wasnt a lowering spring option. So curious to find out if Swift or any other company out there has finally made a lowering/drop spring kit for our cars? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance guys!

Here's the thread I started way back when. Although, I think the only solution thus far has been coilovers.

There's a couple companies that have springs for our car for quite some time now...Eibach, Tein H-Tech...

BTw...you got all this nice stuff on your car...headers, exhaust, blah blah, why are you going cheap on the lowering? Just get coilovers...?

Hey guys, I've been away from the forum for over a month but I'm back! I ended up doing nothing, got upset to find out that the springs didn't work on the 2012 when my suspension was all apart, so I'm still driving on stock 2012 suspension. I want to drop the car but since I don't track it I don't see the need to go with coilovers. I'm still waiting on any vendor having an updated set of springs, but not willing to be the guinea pig anymore!!! LOL.

Hey guys, I saw this thread come up as I was researching Swift springs for my 2011. I noticed that Kamispeed has Swift Springs listed for 2012 + ISF models.
http://www.kamispeed.com/swift-sprin.../swf.4t910.htm
I really like how PhiDeltBee's car came out and I am planning on doing the same.

^ GTFOH! We need someone to Vouch that these are legit, It they are im gonna place an order today! Im with Juanca on this one, as much as I would love to get coilovers and lower my ride with adjustabilty, Im not gonna track the car, I just want to give it a more lower and agressive stance

Anyone care to be the guinea pig on these springs? How about calling them to verify? Or FIGS if your on here bro, help us 2012+ guys out and vouch these springs are really made for our cars or if they are still in the making.

Thanks for keep this thread alive guys!

Part Number on Swift's website shows: 4T906 for the 08'+

The Part Number on Kamis website shows: 4T910 for the 12'+

There isnt a listing for the new part number 4T910 on Swifts site... ? Maybe they forgot to add it onto the list?

I'd just contact Swift to verify the part number for 2012+.

^ Sweet! I just called Swift and they said they just released the springs and verified the part number for the Lexus ISF 2012 - up springs are indeed 4T910. Any Vendors on here willing to do a group buy?

I wanted swift as well but knowing friends that went with springs only on their own cars (not isf) with blown shocks after a fear years has pushed me away. I think you should get coil overs to avoid any future problems and more money wasted. i ended up getting Kw V3. I believe they are $100 more as of 2013. good luck sir.
