Cool RS*R Suspension for the 3IS

Hi everyone,

We have been chatting weekly if not daily to provide the new generation of RS*R suspensions for the 3IS. Coilovers and springs are coming and details will come shortly with coilovers coming first. I don't want to make promises but hopefully soon. I also have to mention VIP Auto Salon who has helped tremendously bringing them to the market from Japan and doing a lot of behind the scenes work.

RS*R already has coilovers and springs for the IS 300h in Japan but they decided not to post here since that model isn't available in the USA and the suspension tuning will be different compared to the IS 250/350.

We have used RS*R coilovers on our Vossen Project GS for over a year and are still in love with them. The GS while already a great handling car drive even sportier while keeping the nice Lexus like suspension. Everyone that has driven it commented on how well sorted the car is.

I also have RS*R springs on our GS F-sport and so far I am also blown away by the quality and customer service. For many of you RS*R needs no introduction as they are considered one of the finest suspension companies in Japan.

Attached are images they sent as they were first with this suspension for the 2014 IS 300h

Picture 1-Springs (not sure of drop)
Picture 2-Stock
Picture 3-Recommend Coilover Setting
Picture 4-Lowered Coilover Setting
Picture 5-Our GS F-sport ripping up the "Tail of the Dragon" on RS*R springs

Updates to come thanks!

hopefully some springs come around quickly...have a friends (not on the forums) who got delivery of his IS350 last night and is wanting to do wheels and a drop asap, showed him the first pic and he's eager to purchase (to say the least)

Look at the forum sponsors, need4speed were very quick to respond to my inquiries and even though I've decided to delay pulling the trigger until the precision series comes out I will probably hit them up again!

Judging by the pics upload by Vossen on their project car, it looks very similar to the drop on springs alone, can anyone confirm?

RS*R has been working overtime to drop full suspensions for all the cars. Yes you AWD boys and girls will get some love too soon With the GS we both were surprised how many AWD/F-sport AWD owners want a lower suspension...

Debuts to come very very soon
