Default Tein lowering spring ride quality?

Not looking to go all out on this car quite yet. Anyone have any experience on the Tein lowering spring ride quality? I know within reason that it is going to be a bit stiffer, but what about in comparison to the factory spring?

Anyone have any pics of this car on Tein springs with factory wheels? Post'em up!

I had good luck with Tein's on my old SC400...

gotta be careful with which ones to buy though, there are many fakes out there...

Tein is one of the most popular sets of springs for the IS over the years. Contact Kris at gotoracingonline.com and tell him you want the s-techs and he will take care of you.

How do they ride? Rougher? Smoother? Does it have the adjustable dampening? Sorry so many questions...

I've been riding on mine for a couple years now, just about perfect ride height, and very very nice ride for how well they perform, I'll be looking to upgrade to coilovers sometime in the future. But until then I am very very pleased

Can you post a picture of the ride height with the Tein lowering springs? Or better yet PM me?

Thanks!
