Well, I got them installed but the rears are SQUEAKY! I think the top mount is moving around a bit, hopefully they'll settle in. Did anyone else have this issue?

Could you write out your order for parts. Specifically the part numbers from summit. I think I have the right parts and I just want to make sure before i order them..

Hi guys.
I Vadim from Russia to the Urals going to the Lexus SC 300-97 of engines 2JZ-GE. My SC 300-97 wheels at 17x8/9".
My goal - to travel quickly and more aggressively on public roads. Roads in Russia - this is not an American ring, and not even the American road. Coilover spring at the - before - 14k gf / mm and backwards - 10 kgf / mm are not suitable for Russian roads. After the installation of such springs - knock your teeth, jumping machine, makes reshuffling overtaking. This is bad.
Carefully read by electronic translators your theme and the theme gixxer_drew: http://www.supraforums.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=446817.
You have a bright golden head and hands. I welcome your ability to do such a complex E ngeenireng work.
I have bad English and perhaps not all, I understood from the translation of your theme, which made me machine (electronic translator).
I ask you to answer my questions:
1) Why did you apply to the SC 300 racks of Supra TT? they are shorter than stock racks for SC 300.
2) stock springs SC 300 have force: Front - 6.57 kgf / mm; Rear - 3.24 kgf / mm. What efforts have springs that you put on the rack Bilstein - Front? and Rear?
3) What (which device?, A castle?) Holds a black sleeve on the yellow rack fixings for a new spring?
4) Use your new design rack (Bilstein + new black sleeve + new spring) made the suspension on your Lexus SC 300 as:
Tein Comfort Sport: Front-10 kgf/mm, Rear-6 kgf/mm. ?
Tein Super Street: Front-14 kgf/mm, Rear-8 kgf/mm. ?
Jic-magic FLT-TA R: Front-20 kgf/mm, Rear-12 kgf/mm. ?
Thank you very much for your attention to my questions.
Good luck.
Vadim

Found my issue, the rear springs are rubbing slightly on the sleeve at the top end. I've only put maybe 5 miles on them and it seems to be going away quickly. It'll probably wear down the threads a bit and clearance itself, so I'm not worried. It shouldn't affect the strength of the sleeve whatsoever and I don't plan on setting the car to 4x4 any time soon, so the threads won't be missed.

R . P. Ordered the 10" at 300lbs and the 8" at 500lbs. The guy at speedway said the longer spring needs to be softer because of more spring to flex. I THINK !!! I am a Fishing Guide and not a mechanic , so wait for confirmation on it...Sumo

Carerra were chrome and Hyper Coils were Blue. I like the Chrome color. They are about the same price.

How are you going to keep them from rusting fast?
Anyone know if theres a weight difference?
I would assume chrome would be heavier

Here is a look at the stock mounting location vs. the lowest possible setting on the sleeve. I don't plan on dropping more than 1.5" or so, so this is more than enough. The 7" sleeves are probably a better option if dropping 3"+.

So whats the actual drop from stock to the lowest setting here?
BTW, thanks for the info, great setup!
