Installing coils, side mirrors, and a few other things for a member thats driving 4 hrs to come up. I could possibly use a extra hand on the coils also? I cant get a lift for the weekend so its going down in the garage.
Mike, I'll stop by your house after I am off work at 2 if you're still there.
PM me your address please.
Sorry I didn't text you back the info yet from your voicemail, had to deal with yet again more **** today. Had to miss class again for the 3rd time in a row.

^ Actually I am getting rid of the G's...Neil wants them for his IS so I am swapping them out with him for the 5 spoke 18" GS rims similar to the blk GS I sent you the pic of. Its my winter set up and I actually like the 5 spoke on the GS when its lowered

I may have to take a rain check for that one. I still have to get my OEM's put back on before I throw on the coils and drop it. My weekend is already too full with plans that are going to severely damage my liver. Happy early St. Patty's Day everybody!!!

I got some JIC Magic Coilovers. I was debating b/w coils and just doing some springs but I heard nothing but amazing things about JIC's and the ride, adjustability etc so I took the plunge. Prob won't slam it too much. Maybe an inch up front, half out back. We'll see

^ I am impressed with the drop of the JIC but the price tag keeps me away I got springs and wish I had more but I am pretty happy with it so far. I may just take do it down the road but want to wait for the rims to see how it looks/drives with hopes that I wont need to.

It was either rims or exhaust/intake & coils. I decided that I really lilked the OEM rims more and more so I just decided to wait on rims. I got the JIC's for an absolute steal from VIP Autosalon. I actually think much less than the IS350 coils. I jumped at a great package deal with everything and saved prob saved over a thousand $$$ all together. I'm not looking for a dramatic drop just more compliant suspension. The stock setup is pretty damn stiff and gets very tiresome after a while. I'm a total newbie with coils so I am hoping for the best.

Vik: Carbon pillars were the gateway drug. intake/exhaust are a must for me with any car. I need to stop spending all my money on my car. At what point do I get to join the AA for car nuts club?
