DO NOT CUT THE SPRINGS!!!! You will regret it and then kick yourself. Don't do it, JUST to get the look of a slammed car. Better to save up for a set of megans or something like that. You will thank everyone for telling you to go the cheaper coilover route.

LS400 parts are worth something or else these cars wouldnt still be here.

HnR drops 1inch all around.
Tanabe has 1.2 F and 1.8 rear?? not sure but somewhere around there.

TANABES! i wouldnt b happy with just an inch drop. tanabe is 1.8 front 1.5 rear. awesome stance too! of course if u can afford coilovers, go for that.

Tanabe's are the business. I can't find anything comparable yet. However the ride is closer to OEM so if your trying to upgrade for performance go with H&R, if your going for look, stance and comfort then go with the Tanabe's.

Im really happy with my H&R springs. I paired them with Tockico blues and i find it handles alot sharper now.
