Completed Coilover Install
3 Attachment(s)
So it has been about 2 months since I purchased My BC Coils from a friend of mine, and didnt have the time to put them in. I thought of taking it to a shop but they were quoting me about $400 to install:eek2: So I decided to take a day off work and finally do it myself. Here are the results! My car is an 08 IS250 AWD. Currently, I am 24.7" ground to fender, and my vibrations are very minimal. For anyone with an AWD, If you set your dampers to a harder setting, it actually reduces the vibration / wobble. Anything below 24.5" and it starts to get pretty ****ty.

BEFORE: Terrible wheel gap.

Cool man, nice work.

I always a believer in doing most car related stuff myself. In the event that stuff doesn't work to my liking, or gets messed up, I can always be the one to blame and not to mention you kind of know what to look for when going back under.

OEM ISP wheels FTW! I'd put the caps back on, but thats just me. Looks great either way!
