Hey, I just bought a Lexus IS300 with E-shift, and I am looking to lower it but I would like to know which spring/shock combo you would recommend for ride quality and looks??? And where would be the best place to get them?? I live in Alberta, Canada so I would probably have to order them. Thanks, Justin

lots of diff combos out there....
i suggest you do a search 1st in this forum before you get flamed
search on key words (ie., l-tuned, trd, h&r, tein, coilovers, koni, tokico, eibach, bilstein, s-tech, hotchkis, jic, etc.......)
a lot depends on how low you want to go, what about bodykit, 18s or 19s, etc......
good luck

I just don't know where to start, I just want it lowered and the biggest rims I can get without having to roll fenders and all that jazz.

how much of a drop are you looking for and what's your budget?

do you want a spring/shock combo or coilovers?, do you need ride height adjustability

i think 19's will be the biggest you can go while being lowered and without having to modify your fender, just make sure to get the right width and offset

I want spring and shock, NO coilcovers, I don't really have too much of a budget, I would like to go atleast 1" - 2" drop at least. I was thinking about tein or eibach but I don't know the best match for shocks.

i think the tein springs give a very good drop, pair that up with some koni yellows or bilstein shocks and you're set

do you need adjustable shocks?

if you are going with tein or eibach you might as well stick with the stock shocks until they are wasted.. they should last a while if your car is still pretty new
