Ahhh, I'm tracking. I agree it is fairly non responsive steering; for me it still doesn't warrant that level of a change. If there was a quick, bolt-on solution I'd be interested but not that much of...

I haven't experienced an air-ride system in a Lexus but I've had it on two previous vehicles. It does indeed minimize the bounce and gives one hell of a smooth ride that can be adjusted. They tend to...

Ryan, that has been my experience too with my buddy's ES that runs coil-overs. I have a lot of "bounciness" with just the springs as well. The biggest downfall of the springs-only application is the...

My recommendation would be the coil-overs first. Sway bars may help too I just haven't experienced too much flex in the chassis. I'm not taking my ES350 to the track or anything; I just prefer the...

Agreed. The only additional parts you may want to consider with lowering the ES is alignment tools to correct the camber (depending on how low you drop the car) to prevent poor tire wear. Here is a...

Here is the link for the Camry set. Megan makes a set labeled for the ES350 I believe it ends up being the same part number as the Toyota ones. I'd call them directly. You can also find them on...

No one mentioned cutting the springs in this thread. I would never recommend that on any car, none the less a Lexus. I used aftermarket Eibach springs.

I disagree that anti-sway bars will give the...

Agreed that any lowering is going to make the ride less of that traditional Lexus feel, but the coil overs make it less painful. I rode with a friend that did coil overs instead of only springs and I...

For my drop I used springs for the Camry SE V6 model. With springs costing ~$250 for the set I'm suggesting purchasing coil-overs at ~$850 instead. The extra money is worth better ride quality;...

Super excited to pick up this unit! Looking at your website it looks like the Android model adds way more functionality than the iOS unit.

That's defiantly the look I was going for. I wanted to stay with a factory option but something sportier than the original 17" silver multi-spoke.

I will more than likely end up putting the 19"...

Figured as much. There was a significant improvement in the handling once I put the Eibachs on there and I'm really happy with the height but the bottoming-out is getting annoying.

I'm probably...

You make a good point. I'm not sure what else would make the ride suffer then. The front tend to "bottom out" very quickly. I'm running IS 350 factory 18" wheels with 225/40 Front and 245/40 Rear. In...

ES 350 Lowered on Camry Springs

I searched the forum looking for advice on suspension mods for the ES 350. I wasn't ready to go the coil-over route yet and wanted to try Eibach springs for the Camry since they don't have them for...

Lowered with what?

Looks good! Can you tell us what you used to lower it? Springs? Coil-overs? Thanks!
