Default installed Tein H tech..

Wanted a subtle drop which retains comfortable lexus ride quality... seems the right choice was tein's htech springs... Buddy and i installed these last week and all i can say is i LOVE EM.. 1in frt, .6 rear. Gives the car the BMW sport suspension look.. rides great, corners alot better, looks amazing. No clunking noise too. highly recommended.

Tein H-Techs offer a nice drop and smooth ride from personal experience. Looks good.

Thats a nice drop actually. I have been searching for pics of 2IS dropped with Tein H. Tech, thanks for the pics maddave.

imo f-sport give better drop but only minor difference with tein h. tech. however performance wise tein h. tech is better and i think cost less than f-sport.

congrats Maddave. Cant wait to post my pics dropped with F-Sport hehe

yes they do come with silencers... top has two(coils) and bottom one as i recall.. even with this subtle drop you have to be careful with those parking cement blocks... had scraped on one already.

Just installed the Tein Htech on my is250 and the ride is great!

I would say that if stock suspension is 100% comfort than the tein Htech still remain 90-95% of the stock comfort, but with a firmer en sportier ride. The suspension is not uncomfortable and feels really 'lexus' like. People who don't know, wouldnt even know that the car has stiffer suspension.

The drop is ok as I don't care about the drop that much:
1 got 2 fingergaps front and 1fingergap rear.

On H-tech

2 fniger gaps front and rear and yes the ride is like stock, so I'm satisfied by far, would need to wait for a long term review in these springs. Still on stock shocks, I kept my f-sport shocks and would experiment on installing it with the H-tech if time permits
