hey im looking for a drop between 1.25 and 1.75. I'm trying to decide between these 2. I have 18 inch SSR GT3's and I want like a finger gap. Are there any other springs that are better for this height? Will the performance be a lot better? I already have TRD sways. Thank you for your help..

H&R, probably more like 2", but about 1-2 finger gap ($150 shipped anywhere overnight)

I know..I know..

Look at wrh3's drop with Tokico springs & shocks combo. Tokico says the drop is 1.25" but looks more like 1.75" after the springs settled. (thank wrh3 for the pic :wink: )

everyone talks about H&R....I love H&R and the look of the car after but im afraid of my rims rubbing and bottoming out a lot during daily driving...I live in the hills of somerset county, NJ so i need springs that wont always hit
And most of all i want good performance.....even witht he TRD sways i want my IS to handle better...all i like to do is take turns fast...i dont really speed or anything..

Tien S Techs from what i remember are supposed to give u a 1.6 drop in the front and 1.7 drop in the back. Tein are a really good choice. I think that if u can afford SSR GT3s u might as well get Tein Coilovers. That way you can adjust the right height to that of ur desire. U don't want the car too low with 18 in rims because it could rub.
