Hey IS 300 owners. I went to the TRD shop and looked at the catalog and saw lots of suspension parts. Sorry no turbo. Those parts are for the Altezza and IS 200. I want to know whether using those parts will fit onto the IS 300. I was thinking of getting the front and rear lower suspension brace. Side note: I don't want to critisize TRD's craftsmanship but the welding looks really crude when compared to how mountain bikes are welded together.

The coil over shock set costs well over 2000 USD.

I think that anything that is non-engine, non-tranny, non-mission will work interchangably with the IS300 and the IS200/Altezza. Most body enhancements, suspension, interior, etc., should fit fine since the IS300 is different from the IS200/Altezza only in engine related parts... I think... someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The IS200 is not sold in USA, and as such it has different bumpers (since they don't have the same low speed crash requirements).

So - be careful about body kits which might have some trouble with the US spec (IS300) bumpers.

I would also said that the suspension setting is a little bit different to counter the heavier front end of the IS300. I highly doubt they changed the entire geometry, probably just the shock/spring setting and the size of the sway bars. I am pretty sure you could get an Altezza TRD suspension kit and put on the car, but I don't think it will be as good as the one that is specifically design for the IS300.
