I got a quote from several vendors and the prices vary 10-15 dollars (675 shipped), but i would recommend Circuit Motorsports, I called there number and got quick and friendly service with fast shipment.

What are you guys using for height reference... I'm not wanting to slam the thing and I also want to keep the stock forward rake, I think it looks more aggressive and will help counter understeer tendency which seems to be the norm these days. I'm currently using the fender lip to the ground through the wheel centerline: fronts are at 25 3/4, rears at 24 1/2 in inchs. but may raise everything another 1/4 inch as I am now touching the front spoiler on occasions and have to be mindful with driveway ramps and dips. would like to hear what some of you other guys are running at. Thanks

I purchased these coils from Circuit motorsports for my IS250 via the Market place. I got great service, awesome price and fast delivery and i am very pleased with the coils. The coils are the bomb !!! They were cheap and the ride quality is amazing !!

Spdrcr771 on this forum installed them for me, and he did a real great job, Thanks scooter !!! We dropped the height by one inch from stock and on the soft setting it runs exactly like stock to me. I have experimented a bit with the dampening settings and even at the hardest setting the car rides pretty smooth !! I finally settled on a setting of 7 for the fronts and 12 on the rear, as the rear pretty much touches when going over bumps and turning tight corners on any lower setting. I still need to get my alignment done, so i am thinking that i may have to camber the rears in a bit to allow for clearance.

Anyway i would highly reccomend these coils to anyone that just needs to drop their ISx50 for street driving, the price is great, the ride quality is amazing and dealing with Circuit Motorsports was an absolute pleasure. I will be making more purchases from them for my other parts. I will post pics of the install soon !!

Just make sure you preload the coilovers correctly and adjust to your preferred height

I have had mine on my IS250 for a couple of months now and have only put on about a thousand miles on them. So far they are holding up really well and the ride is nearly as smooth as stock !! I love them and will reccomend them to anyone on a budget.

I'm considering getting these, anyone having problems with squeaks? Other forums are reporting minor squeaking on rebound.

No squeaking here. Took a few attempts at getting the damper right, but i love mine. A little stiffer than stock but not by much.
