F-sport lowering springs?
 
Do you guys think this is worthit? I have a IS350 F-sport, which is low enough but I want to lower it a little bit more. I can get these at the dealer and the website said it can drop my ride by around an inch. Do I need anything else install to it on top of these springs?

Personally I wouldn't get F-Sport springs, the drop is very mild and barely noticeable. Go with something with a bigger drop such as H&R Springs or Eibach Pro Kit Springs.

Anybody have any pictures?

Dont bother with springs, just get coils.

I'm not looking for a crazy drop. I live in the bay area and there's a lot of hills and bumps. I'm just looking for a slight 1 inch drop or so.

Still could go with the coils and just don't adjust it to be too low. Haha. I live in San Fran and yea hill suck :( Heres a couple of quick pics that I could find of mine.

The great thing about coils is the adjustability. You can go adjust it whenever you want to go higher or lower

Nice ride! Haha, those aren't the F-sport springs though right?

FSport sucks...drops like half an inch (or 0.7 or something)

Nope, H&R Springs on OEM Shocks.

Yeah, I just wanted around an inch since my front is already lower than stock because of the F-sport front lip thing. I kinda just wanted the rear end to look a little lower.

If you want small drop, htech is so much better than fsport

the lip doesn't do much....

Hold on. I'm a little confused. You're looking at F-sport springs and you have an IS350 F-sport? Doesn't your car already have F-sport springs on it? You should be able to look at the color of the springs. If it's black then you have the OEM springs. If it's blue then you have the F-sport.

Buy H&R or Eibach if you want it lower than the F-sport.

I thought the Fsport package doesnt add any Fsport parts? :uh:

Hoac 09-23-12 07:37 PM

f sport package comes with the sport springs. its like .4" lower in the back from OEM.
