Default Lowering springs is 350 f sport 2013

Can anyone advise what springs they've used to lower the above car ?

Wanting something that lowers the front "around" 1 inch & 1/2 to 3/4" at the rear keeping the standard wheels.

Im chasing some that are ideally the same spring "rate" as what the car comes standard with, as the ride is perfect. I merely want to lower it for looks. I don't want an uncomfortable ride that's comes with some of the after market springs that are too stiff.

If you know what the spring rates are, even better. No one seems to know what the rate they come standard with ?

Not interested in tyre rub problems etc that stem from going to low.

Tein S-Techs. Ride felt like stock with the fsport wheels. You won't rub with stock wheels.

I agree with "IS350S2K". Tein S-Tech. Drop is 1.0/1.2. I don't rub on my stocks and it does feel like stock.

Thanks IS 350 chis, you have any pics ?, Tein they're the Japanese, or American made ones ?

Think the stock springs are the perfect spring rate & balance of performance & comfort !

Wow, perfect, exactly what im looking for, looks great, thanks !!!!

Tein S Techs hey ?, what did they cost & where did you buy them from ?

Did you notice any difference in comfort ?, they're not too stiff ?

Have you got any pics from further back, side on ?

Lexus say anything about voiding any factory warranty with doing it ?

- It's very close to stock, but of course bumpier when going over dips and small humps. I've had one large person sit in the back once and no rubbing, but haven't had two people back there yet.

Have you got any pics from further back, side on ?

-I'll try to snap a pic later on.

-I haven't been back to Lexus for them to say anything to me, but I think if anything went wrong, Lexus needs to prove that it is the springs are the cause of the problem.

You're better off buying teins from an approved vender. There are plenty in the vendor market place. You about cheap knockoffs and helping the forums.
