Guy and Gals,

After many failed attempts searching for my answers wth the search function I ask simply "if you have lowered your is220d could somebody please tell me with which springs and where to purchase them from?"

The answer is probably there and i just cant find it...lol :crybaby:

My car now sits on 18's but defo need s a 1" drop to sort out the arch gap.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I have found one set of springs on the net called H&R Lowering springs but there from germany and I would like if poss to purchase them from the UK.

Thanks

Tango, your a star, apologies for my forum stupidness. Thanks again.

Just so you know the 7.5J wheels dont look too skinny on the back (if you recall you posted the sizes for me and I went and ignored you!!!)

I tried to get 8J but they didnt do them and i couldnt afford any wheels in split sizes!!!

Also one last question? obviously the threads you posted for me seem to detail a is250? I assume the geometry settings/springs are the same for the is220d when lowering?

Thanks again

Exactly the same set-up. the European EiBach Pro-Set drops the car 30 mm all round with Eibach Pro set No. 10-82-009-05-22. If you read the WIM http://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/forum/ind...owtopic=660link you know my car has the American Spec springs so has 5 mm less drop at the rear, but 5.65 mm additional drop on the front, and they're also stiffer and progressive.

I have the EiBach camber adjusters fitted to the front as the drop took the camber settings out of specification and the OEM set up only has adjustable toe settings. I don't know if the 30 mm drop will result in too much negative camber, as don't know your offsets but suggest you have it checked after fitting the springs.

will have it checked once fitted, the H & R springs I have seen from germany drop the car 35mm all the way round which may just be too much so will prob go for the european eibach. thanks again tango

H&R springs are good quality, so you should find that the ride quality is just as good as the looks. I used a set on my Vauxhall Omega as they were half the price of replacement springs from the dealership and I'd been looking for an excuse to lower the car and never had any cause to be upset with them. I know quite a few Porsche owners use them too...

yes found the ride quality exactly the same as the standard springs which is good and it has lowered the car nicely.

Sprins from H & R now fitted and look amazing, dropped about 35-40mm...piccies to follow when weather picks up

I suggest you will need camber adjusters if the front has dropped over 30mm as the negative camber will be outside of the geometry tolerances, and the second generation IS only has toe adjustment. Although the contact patch with the road has only moved slightly and the road holding is still OK, you'll get inner tyre wear.

Thanks for the info tango, where would i purchase those from as i intend to get the geometry set up again properly using your measurments to avoid tyre wear.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
