Default RSR Super Down Ride & DD Experience

Hey all. I have a 2015 IS250 RWD F-Sport that I am planing on dropping with RSR Super Downs or Downs, not 100% sure yet. I like the stock 18's, so I won't be changing them out. Right now, I'm looking at the Super Downs, 20mm spacers all around and the SPC Rear Camber kit.

I'm looking for owners who are on the Super Downs to provide their opinion of the ride quality vs stock and the issues they've encountered so far (ie, scraping, noises, parking problems, speed bumps, etc). Also, if you can comment on your tire wear so far and if you are using a camber kit, that would also be helpful.

I love the look of the Super Downs over the Downs and I live in S. FL, so the roads are good and I've researched plenty on CL here, but I've never lowered any of my cars in the past, so I want to be sure I do my due diligence before pulling the trigger, as I really love how the car handles and rides right now.

Rsr super downs imo, are the best drop springs could give you. They ride super nice like stock. You will have to learn to angle on every driveway & avoid imperfections in the road. Tire wear is normal, camber was around 3 & toe was corrected. I've had several different spring setups in all different cars & the rsr springs trump all. Good luck!

Thanks Matt, I appreciate the info. I ordered the Super Downs and a rear camber kit and I'll report back my experience.

I had Downs first, then switched them out for Super Downs. I had Super Down's on my AWD since July 2014. The ride is deff bumpier than stock. Camber wear on the tires is expected. The drop is perfect! Cannot be careless when hitting driveways and potholes because you deff scrap. But having them since July, I think my OEM struts are getting shot since they start squeaking once its bumpy in a quiet area.
