Just received my tein s tech springs in the mail but now I'm kind of skeptic about installing them due to camber issues with having 19 inch wheels. Anyone experienced any camber issues lowering your vehicle with 19 inch wheels?

Do we normally have to do wheel alignment after changing to lowered springs ?

Yes, best thing to do is a wheel alignment at least a few weeks after you drop the car. Once it settles.

I'm currently in the market for springs. I finally found a Lexus Certified Tech to do the install ( on the side for $300 bucks ) On this white Fsport, is that H tech or S tech? I'll assume its S Tech for the purpose of the thread. As well, can you touch on the ride quality with the stock wheels. I love the stock wheels, but hate the wheel gap up front. My goal is tighten handling, but not make it too bumpy. I've been reading, yet worry about pot holes and speed bumps. This is coming from a guy that was static on coils in a VW ( approx 3" clearance on my front lip )

Thanks

Pictured is the S-Tech.. Buy them you will be very very happy
$300 bucks for install for springs is too much IMO.. get him to go down to at least $250.

How are the spring rates? I just got off the phone with a local tuner shop and they said that Tein's are soft and tend to blow out shocks. Am I missing something or should I go RSR Down?

The weather is getting hot and I got the bug.

Intake and exhaust will come shortly thereafter.

I agree with this assessment. Although comfortable, they are definitely softer and a little floaty over bumps. I miss stiffness on stock springs. They also dropped the rear more than 1". I wish I would have shelled out a few more bucks and got rsr or tanabe.

So whats the RSR equivalent? From pics it looks like the super downs put the car waaaay down. I love the stance of the S tech, but really want the true performance gain of the spring. If not, its not worth it for " the look " IS350 Fsport is a luxury performance car. I dont want to half a$$ this, yet I clearly dont want coils since I like the dynamics aspects of the drive modes. Any assistance?
