Default 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.

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.

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

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.
