76 lbs isn't as high as you might think, so hand tightening could be a problem if you are really overdoing it. If you use the stock lug wrench to tighten, I find it difficult to believe you could...

Has anyone done the measurements for the 2G IS 350? I crawled under there today. These measurements are not super accurate, but they shouldn't be off by TOO much.

How low do you want to go? Unless you want to slam it, I don't think you are going to need coils. I have heard that the less expensive coilovers (and that includes BCR) are going to have a lower life...

In winter I run 225/45/17 all around. What "issue" were you expecting? I mean I know I run slower than the speedometer shows. It isn't that much though. Maybe 5 click at 80kph.
