I really wanted to believe in Megan Products and offer them my support, however after a nightmare customer service issue I can't help but warn everyone that Megan has a real hard time backing up their products even when their product is misrepresented on their website.

If you do decide to purchase, don't lose your receipt or expect consideration from them after your warranty expires.

I have a 2001 LS430... If I get some Megan EZ Coilovers, are they just "plug n play?" Or do I gotta buy other parts? Like toe, camber, etc??

Also, I'm only wanting to drop 3" all around. Mainly get rid of the gap.

With "only" 3" drop you will end up with quite a bit of camber, IIRC around 2.5-3 degrees from what others have posted. That much camber will wear your tires more quickly than what you have at OEM ride height.

You're right... Lol 3" would have me tucking tires too.

So I retract that post saying "I only want to drop 3in" haha

I will most likely be dropping 1.5-2inches at most. I don't plan to roll or shave fenders either. I'm on 20s in my LS430. Hopefully I wont be slamming over humps on roads... I would need to roll n shave if I went 3" or more. Not ready for that great of drop..

Thanks WylieKylie

I just got these and love them, but i'm getting this squeaking/chirping noise from the back seat area. It sounds like it's coming from the subwoofer area. Hard to pinpoint. Anyone have this issue? It's driving me insane and I don't think it's coming from the coilovers.

I just ordered mine! Feedback seems to be good! I just want to know what kind of drop am I looking at for the car with just stock from manufacture settings on the coilovers? Pm please if you have the answer! Thanks!

In earlier threads, people have stated they ride smooth and some issues noted were slight vibrations at stops usual things that come with switching to coilovers. I think most of the reviews are like pages 3-6. Hope this helps and enjoy your IS.

Thumbs up Megan Racing Coilovers

Hello !

Just wanted to let you all know that I am VERY happy with my purchase!
I was worried about megan racing ez coilovers being cheap, but So far SO good! Smooth and comfortable, yet you can really take corners fast and have awesome handling.

GO get some if your thinking about it!

Update: I know I haven't posted here to anywhere in a long while.

I've had megan ez coilovers on my car since it first was released. I have put almost 20k miles on them. I would have to say, the ride isn't as smooth as stock. But really common. Anyway, I've had 0 problems with mine aside from the slight squeaking sound when the car is cold. I'm overall happy with the purchase. I have it dropped with maybe a finger or two gap. I would purchase again.

But yes, customer service sucks. I tried contacting them twice before purchasing to get more info. No response was ever given.

I would like to give a testimonial as well as I recently installed these.

Great coilovers. Ride is super smooth and rides like stock when its adjusted to 7/15 F/R. A little too soft when you are lowered with no gap.

I have meaty tires in the front 235/35/19 and it rubbed like hell even with a conservative offset. Now it is at 11/15 F and it doesn't rub at all. Thought I wanted to share since when i was doing research, every bit of information helped.

At 11/15 F, the ride is still very smooth but I would say the feel is closer to H&R springs, I had them on for a while.

Now I just hope that my tires last with no camber kit. Also hope that the coils themselves last for at least 50k miles. Fingers crossed.

Regards,
