What size were your rims?

Has anyone been able to find a damper setting on the EZ's that are as comfortable or more comfortable than stock?

I'm looking to go 26 inches fender to ground, same as springs. interested in the coils so i could potentially adjust the damper for a better ride. Comfort > performance for me since this car is daily driven and I don't drive it like I'm on a track. Would the switch the coils for this purpose be worth it?

Anyone from the mid-west have a set of these Megan Coils? I am looking for a set but live in Michigan and we have pot wholes that will bury a car and everyone in it or take you to the other side of the world. So, I was wondering how well they hold up in snow and salt and sand and all the other stuff this lovely state has to offer.

I think 6-7 up front is a good balance. Steering is still decently responsive and it feels like stock. I was around 25.5 - 26 with 6 and it was super comfortable.

Hey everyone, I'm new to Clublexus and I have been looking into the EZ Megan suspension for a few weeks for my 09 IS350. I have read through most of the thread and it seems like most are happy with their purchase. I was wondering if anyone has an opinion on camber kits? A friend of mine was going through tires every 7-10 months when she has 20's on her car. I was thinking about 19's in the front and 20's in the back and was looking for some feedback. Thanks!

Default re.

I am new to the forum. I just purchased some Megan ez coilovers. I realized the dial for soft and hard is only 15 clicks. So what is the best number for the ls430. I have some 20" staggered wheels

Does anyone know if we can swap in another brand of springs into the Megans for example...

Swapping in K-Sport springs into the Megan body.

Default Nor Cal installation?

Can anyone recommend anyone in the Northern California area I can pay to install Megan EZ Coilovers? I have a 2008 IS250 rear wheel drive.

I went to a local shop and they quoted me $930.00

I damn near fainted.

Thanks!

Ordered mine yesterday. Can't wait to take off this 4x4 looking ride height.

Question: How long did it take you guys to install these yourselves? I'll probably be installing them solo (cause my friends suck), so I want to get an estimate on the time.

thinking to switch from EZ to LP. only difference between the two is LP has more damping setting to reduce suspension travel and prevent rubbing, right?
