Just curious, I read some threads back from 2005. Someone here said the manual stock spring rate and height are different to those of e-shift. Is that real? What are the differences? Same shocks different springs?

BTW, I'm new here. Greets to all IS300 owners.:)

not sure if there's any truth to that rumor.

I did the "scour"ing for you.

-Overall height raised 0.6" (from 54.9" in 2001 to 55.5")

-Minimum running ground clearance increased from 4.9" for 2001 to 5.3"

-Spring rate increased for 5-speed manual

Your welcome :)

this deserves some reppage. I was curious about it too. Funny how a guy with less than 50 posts knows how to use the search function better than alot of ppl on this site. Oh well. Rep when i can because im out for 24.

nice... thanks a lot

i wonder if Lexus made change to the spring's length or the shocks.. anyone know about this? cuz I want to have spring replacement and I have a 01. If the shocks of 01 is shorter than 02+, then my car will drop more than I thought.

Thank you so much... !!:)
