Hey welcome


Look into the STOP/DROP and ROLL section

or search for all kinds of dropped IS pics

Listen to IMPRIMIS, he gave you the answer. Just look in the stop, drop, and roll section of this site. People have asked the same question at least 1.3 million times, you'll find your answers.

nice pics fellas but ive only lowered hondas and acuras before and all i got was cheap coilovers from ebay and tha ride sucked and i dont wanna lower a lexus and have a rough ride. i just want a smooth ride with a nice drop. i just dont kno what i need. i heard about Tein-s but i checked em out and all i saw were springs..... that cant be all i need.... is it?

That's a nice tire/drop combo IMO, are those 18 x 8.0?

U can put some H & R springs which give u about a 1.5 drop n rides like stock or if u want something lower go with the S techs from Tein which lower about 1.8.
