I say do it (perfect wknd project)...you'll more than likely get a spring/coilover setup once released anyways and have no use for the stock springs once those come in. what's a coil or two

If you're kidding or not, don't think I'd do it on the IS, but I did saw them off with a grinder to my '91 MR2's springs years back and had no problems other than a stiffer ride. It dropped about 1.5" and looked awesome. If you do proceed, can you post some pics along the way?

Have you considered using coil spring clamps instead of cutting in the interim? 10-15$ but mixed reviews...

If I have time this weekend I'll bring it to work and cut them there . The worst that can happen is that the shock will get damaged . I will get Coilovers so I will tackle this tomorrow. I will post lots of pics

I took the car to work had it on the lift and I was ready to start doing all the work but at the very last minute I said Hell no I'm not going to do all this work now and do it again in 2 months . I'm lazy people.

There will be two coilover systems...this is a pic of the black i which gives you and extremely low look but with a still great ride. This is an IS 300h but they are coming quickly for the 250/350 here....

The sport i will be here too, that is the system on the Vossen Project GS and Hyundai Genesis ....

Sign me up for some!

Does the white IS in the pic have a body kit? The bumpers and sides are different. Also has no exhaust pipes.
