Shocks

Can anyone recommend shock absorbers for the altezza? The IS300's is shorter. Is there an equivalent in the US?

Thanks!

Tein really work great, specially the street version. Same as the IS they fit right in.

The lexus is300 suspension is the same as the Altezza. There are a lot of options available. Depends on your budget and taste.

Wrong.

Go Tien Coils just so you could have the adjustable ride height.

Just in case the Roads are as bad in your country as in the Bahamas.

I think you'll find the Altezza has slightly shorter shocks than the IS300. I know they sit lower than the IS200.
All depends on you budget. KYB would be a good start, then Koni or Bilstein would be the next step up. Can't go wrong with TRD either. Full blown coilovers would be they way to go if you have the cash.
