Default First IS-C on Air

Ok, so i found out from fox marketing and DJKhanvict that the IS-C and the 4door 2IS have the same mounting locations when it comes to suspension. With that said, an Air Runner kit will bolt right in.

Im still waiting for the kit to come in but i chopped some pics on what it would look like (I couldnt wait). plus, the new shoes i will be test fitting sometime this week (Free from a friend). Please excuse the photoshopping, im not that great.

Do you plan on getting an aftermarket body kit, as well? That should be a must with a drop that aggressive.

I dont plan on any kits as of yet, from what i think the bumpers are different than the 4door. i think alot of whats out there wont fit.

Correct on the suspension mounting points...

I worked on an IS-C (SEMA bound), about 6 weeks ago...

We are getting some Fresh Coils dialed in for that ride!!!

Whats cool is the rear access doors in the trunk, for the OE suspension.
You have ZERO carpet to remove if your doing a basic spring or coil swap!!

Congrats on the New Ride..
