Default Dropped my IS-F with JIC Coilovers for the IS-F

Hi,
I just installed some JIC Coilovers for the IS-F on Nov. 14, 2008. As you can see from the pictures that the drop is very nice and it feels way better than stock, because the stock ride is very harsh. I will play with the dampening more when the coils settle in for the car. I picked these bad boys from VIP Status from Clark! Big Props to him!!! If there are any questions, about the coilovers please PM me.

Thank you and enjoy!

P.S. The pictures were taken by TRex06 with my Canon 40D with 16-35 2.8L lens. heh...I really need to learn how to use my camera...sigh...

How much was the set? How is the ride quality and camber? Will your tires wear faster than normal?

If there is any questions about the price, please PM me because I don't want to break any rules about it. As for noise on the car from the suspension, I have had a few of my fellow clublexus friends drive the car and they were all impressed with how smooth the car went through imperfections on the road. Since I am still new to coilovers, I will have my CL buds answer your questions...lol

There is no top mount noise. Even my HKS Hipermax III, I have no top mount noise.

I personally had the opportunity to try the suspension out, and it is UNBELIEVABLE. The ride is soooooo smooth, it's smoother then the factory IS-F suspension.

This has the pocky seal of approval.
