Mazpeedingrods coilovers aren't lowering my fronts enough

Hey guys, wondering if anyone can help

I recently put is300 coilovers on my toyota altezza and got the rears to sit flush (not maxed out), but the front still has a bit over an inch between the tire and fender and they are maxed out. What i did was raise the preload the allow me to shorten the overall length of the coil and max it out, but it didn't lower as much as i wanted. Is that where i went wrong? anyone know what i should do to get it to lower more?

Any info helps, thanks

Different coil over, Shorter knuckle, RCA's, control arms. There is several options.

Careful & Consistent

Okay I have a Celica that I used to run Maxpeedingrods coilovers on (I was a broke high school kid and basically bought the cheapest CO's i could find) and they gave out after a year. I live in a cold climate and I guess one freeze thaw cycle was not good for them, beside the fact they rode very poorly. I would definitely recommend a different set of CO's. Right now on my celica I run DGR Coilovers which are honestly great, super comfy ride and lots of dampening and good adjustability. On my IS the last owner installed Tein SS coilovers and I kid you not they are absolutely amazing. Online I seen the average price they went for and theyre up there but if no one told me i'd never be able to tell its on coilovers, they are so smooth. I just reccomend paying extra and getting a reputable brand of coilovers, itll make your experience a million times better.
