I had them installed a few weeks back. There's a bunch of threads on these though. I'll take some pictures and post them. The car sits a lot nicer on the wheels now. Not too low. The rear wheel is slightly in the wheel well and the front is just below it. The rides a little different. It feels a touch more bouncy. I've read that other guys like the ride better with them installed over factory springs. I can go either way. I honestly did it more for appearance. Overall I'm very happy with them.

These springs actually ride better than stock!!! not as bouncy as the oem. These pictures are from my car the day after it was lowered, they are settled now and both the front and back are perfectly level.

I know this thread is a few weeks old but I too have Tein installed on my F. I really like the way it looks as it drops the car enough to get rid of the gap in the front and rear. Imo, ride is improved and not as rough as with the stock springs. The install was simple and took no longer than an hour, max. I'd recommend Tein over other spring choices out there. Friends have switched from Eibach to Tein after riding in the F and feeling the difference/seeing the difference in drop heights. Good luck and let us know what you think

Hey guys is there any "Spring Slap"? I installed F-Sport springs on my IS350 and it had horrible spring slap. I had to purchase spring rubbers from Tein and install them almost around the entire spring to get it to quit. I am reluctant to install springs now
Thanks
Andy

I've noticed a little more rubbing but nothing to the extreme. I like to take most steep inclines/declines at an angle so it's not too bad. I did crack the lip the other day though
