Little or nothing to choose from, both lower by -30, same compression. Tein are made by Tokico in Japan, Eibach are made by Eibach in Germany.

I think the majority of this club have the Eibach springs .... myself included.

Tein are rarer ... and more so for coilovers. :)

I used to have the Eibach springs.

Great price and springs and don't really affect the ride quality at all :D

I notice you have a sport, Bulldog. Are these not already 15mm lower?

When you guys say you get -30mm is this only on the S and SE. Will Bulldog only get -15mm? Sorry for poking my nose in, just a little curious?

I could be wrong, but I don't think the TEIN springs will work properly on the is200 as they were designed to be used on the Atezza which is lighter at the front.

We have never tried them so I can't give you the benefit of any experience so I would advise that you get confirmation of suitability 1st.

Hope this helps :)

Anyone live near the factory? Do they have a factory shop? :whistling:

She that must be obeyed often take some convincing - almost as bad as my MD when it comes to cap ex :tsktsk:

You can get Eibachs for that price. I think I picked mine up even cheaper than that. :)

A question for you all.

I presume those of you who changed springs retained the OEM struts for the fronts ? And the OEM shocks for the rears ?

After having this work done, did you have to have a 4 wheel alignment check/setup done again ?

You will definantly need to have alignment done again, as it will alter the charecteristics of the suspension geometry. Every one recomends Doc Bones, who im sure will be along any minuite to either correct me or confirm my awnser.... :D

If you're fitting lowering springs then that's all you need. Just the springs over the standard shocks.

If you're going to fit after market shocks and springs then go for a coilover set.

You do need to get your geometry done after lowering the car.

Does lowering the car with just springs and keeping the OEM shocks have any problems in the long run?

DR Bones is in Watford. But you can go to Drury Lane to get them fitted plus geometry which is one of his trusted centres. PM Anees for details as he's used them quite alot. He might be able to tell you a decent place to pick the springs up oooopp north :) (Then again knowing Anees it was probably ebay :lol: )
