Im dropped my car last week and am going to get an alignment sometime this week. You dont have to get it asap, but dont wait more than a few days either.

And Im not crazy low, I only closed the wheel gaps

Check this lowest of the low thread and look for people who are on megan ez coilovers.
Yea mines a gs300 idk if I was posting in the right section. Thanks that info helped me out. I'm going to check out the slammed members. I'm going to purchase the Megan's tonight n install nxt week. I'll post pics when I'm done

Just installed these coilovers on my is300 today. Feels so nice. Tried them on the softest setting at first and couldn't tell if they were softer than stock, but they felt about the same, so smooth. Now I have them set to 10 in the rear and 12 up front. Feels really responsive, but not harsh at all. Can't beat these for the price and quality. I'm completely sold on Megan. Looking to buy other suspension parts from them now.

so pretty much after reading 15 pages of this thread i'v summed up the theory that for a mild drop to close the fender gap these coils are perfect but any lower a.k.a. "slammed" these are not it because the spring rates aren't stiff enough. So your safe with a 2" drop but any lower and you run into rubbing problems

You can def slam your car on EZs no problem.

My friend maxed out his EZs on his Accord and hes basically on the floor. Everyone will have different opinions on the ride feel so it really depends.

And also, just because your dropped lower than 2 inches doesnt mean your going to rub. It depends on your tire size, wheel offset, etc. Again,my friend maxed out his EZs on 19" Volks and doesnt rub because he rolled his fenders and doesnt have aggressive offsets.

Here's a video that gives u an idea of the concept. I'm sure there's better videos out there though.

I'm going to bumb this thread - just installed the Megan EZ coils on my 2006 IS250 AWD last night. Dropped the car about 2 inches all around and still have probably another 2 inches of potential drop left on the coils. I lowered it just to the point where there is no fender gap on F/R. The car is much more responsive, agile, no body roll, and rides like stock. I have not touched the dampening yet. Will get an alignment in two weeks once the springs are done settling.

Shoot me a pm if you have any questions.
