Default Best Lowering Springs

What would be the best springs to lower my car using the stock shocks?

Best at what?

Best price?

Best handling?

Best ride comfort?

Best at not needing new shocks?

Best at not causing alignment problems?

Best in terms of pants?

when it comes to suspension there is no such thing as best, its all personal preference and opinion. imo i wouldnt even lower on stock shocks

One of the lowest are Road Magnets. Never really heard of them like the other brands mentioned, but low spring.

I can't vouch for Eibach, Road Magnets, etc. since I have the Tein s techs currently. I will say, they provide a very comfortable ride, are reasonably priced, great handling compared to stock, and definitely filled in the ridiculous gaps in the fenders well. Definitely recommended by me.

+1 on H&Rs IMO the best springs besides tein. gives you a good drop to minimize wheel gap and not slammed bouncing around with road magnets. also consider just getting coilovers, im regretting it now lol.

I have Road Magnets on my 2010 IS250, the ride is pretty decent, but compared the Teins i had on my Acura TSX & TL i think they were more comfortable. But my Road Magnets provide a sick drop. Definately the lowest springs out there for the 2G IS.
