Hello everyone...
I just wanted to share my progress so far. I lowered the car today using the JIC magic coilovers. I had them on my IS350 and loved them so knowing that the suspension components were similar for the F I decised to get a set for it. This is honestly the first time I have changes suspension and have it ride better than stock. Stock IS-F is a bit harsh and the adjustable JIC do nice at getting you the ride height you want and an even more comfortable ride. Very pleased.

It took me a while to get it adjusted to exactly what I wanted. I lowered the front 2" and the rear 1.5" from the stack height.

Wheels are TSW Croft (9" front and 10" rear) with Lexus OEM Center caps. 245|30 in front and 285|25 in rear.

I rolled the rear fenders becuase I new it was going to be close. No scrubbing (but barely)

Nice car but I can't understand why you would put those cheap wheels on a car like this?

TSW belong on civics, it's a huge downgrade from the stock wheels as far as I see.


Crazy.

Love how the rotors don't get dwarfed even by these huge wheels.

The rubber band tires will kill performance unfortunately....not my style but looking good.

That looks really good!! I wanted to see what these wheels would look like on an IS.

TSW is way underrated in quality in my opinion, people think you need to spend $500 plus per wheel in order to get a nice wheel..

pm a price on your stock wheel if you're going to sell them
