I have a 2003 Lexus IS. I was looking into gettting some lowering springs with a 1" drop. I was just wondering if it is fine to put these springs on my stock shocks with 60k miles already?

i am not sure if this causes a problem or not in the future. but i have had my springs for about 4 months now with the stock shocks. btw i have a 1.3/1.6'' drop. i have no complaints.

i just dropped my car 2 months ago which has 90K miles with H&R springs using the stock shocks and the ride comfort is awesome. No problem with it .

ive had H&R springs on my car for about a year and they have sagged a lot. my car is lop sided to the left now due to the fact that i drive a lot by myself. it fucking sucks.

Im about to enter the same bout. Im bout to install Tein s tech and wondering how long should I wait before my shocks are shot. My mileage is around yours Lexus300T. I guess put the springs on and let it ride. I hope I save enough money to buy me new shocks before then lol

Honestly, Your best bet would be to save up for some aftermarket struts and get them put on with the springs at the same time.

Anything around 1 inch will be fine for a bit. Kits that give you over 1.5 inch drop will affect it after a while.
