Sport Vs Standard Suspension

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm from Portugal, and I have two Lexus IS200, one Sport and the other the standard version.

Can any tell me what are the differences between the standard suspension and the sporty one?

I notice that the standard IS is more distante to the ground in about less than 1" (2cm).

They have only diferent coils or the shocks are diferent too?

Thank you.

Sorry about my english! :blush:

The sport springs are -15mm less than S and SE model..

-10mm on the older sport models

the older sport was not lowered......

the shocks are the same basically, just slightly different in internal rod length, not that you would notice

Something has to be different because in the Standard one the behaves like a boat! :duh:

If I put some lowered springs it will be more likely the Sport one?

On the German language Euro LOC Forum they keep telling the Anti Roll Bars are stiffer on the Sport model - Somewhere between non-Sport and TTE ARBs. Same story with the springs. Then there's the different shock absorber part numbers - didn't know that they're just shorter (as mentioned above) I always thought they were a tad harder too.

But specs on the IS200 Sport model have varied from country to country.
