Does anyone know the Minimum amount the Megan EZ Coilovers will lower a 2WD IS250? I'm trying to decied between H & R Springs or these coilovers. I'm going to be having a set of 20x8.5 with 225/30 tires (+40mm offset) and I want to try to avoid rubbing issues. I know I may have some rubbing, but I don't want anything extreme...Thanks for the info!

^ Found the answer, nevermind!

Recently installed these on my 08 250 AWD, as stated before I get a slight vibration when in drive at a stoplight which I can live with. My question to those that are AWD or RWD w/auto trans do you feel the trans shifting/down shifting a bit more than stock suspension??? Or am I just crazy? Lol

My Megans arrived today, i noticed that the 2 front are adjusted exactly the same and same thing for the rear, my questions is how low is the standard setting when it come in the box? Did any body install straight from the box? I'm kind of clueless as far as to how do I know the mesurement on the coilover I need to go about the drop I want? Any hints pictures of ideas are greatly appreciate!

I think its around 2.5 inches out of the box? Don't take my word for it though lol. I do know that when I got mine, I adjusted them a bit higher and my car is at about a ~2inch drop, so that's what I'm basing my guess on. Hope this helps!

Your not crazy, its the front axles on our AWD system. When your "too low" it'll cause vibrations when your on a full stop and in gear (in D, S or R) unless you lift the car up to 25 inches from the floor to top of your fenders.

Check your cv boot once in a while, many people have reported (including me) that the cv boot will tear over time.

i kept it at manufacturer height and i have AWD.

i'm running 19x8.5 all around, no rub at all but i scrape on steep declines if i don't take it slow. wheel gap is gone.

i also experience the vibrations but i'm used to it now.

Hey, I have a gs300, I found te Megan racing coilovers for like 650 and I wanna know how low I can take these. It saa these only go to like 15 or sumthing and the ksport coilovers have like 32 for adjusting? I'm assuming the more u can adjust the lower u can go, does anyone have pics of gs300 slammed or atleast fairly close to the ground? Post pics let me see if you have. That'd b really helpful for me. Thanks

Are you looking for coilover information for GS300 or ISx50? The 15 something and 32 something is the damper settings which will determine ride comfort or how soft/hard you want the damper settings to be.

These can be adjusted to be VERY low, we have few members here who are slammed on megan EZ.

Check this lowest of the low thread and look for people who are on megan ez coilovers.

I had an alignment done after i put mine on. My camber was pretty off. I wanted the best tire mileage setting for my car so they set it as close to 0 as possible.

Coilovers are adjustable to whichever height you desire, it is 100% ok to close the gaps, I'm not slammed on my Megan EZ, I wanted them just to close the gap as well.
