I have TEINs installed on just the front. It PERFECTLY levels out the car and greatly enhances the appearance. The ride I feel at worst is the same, but most of the time I feel that it's better than stock. Only 2 problems with lowering the car. PROBLEM #1- is that it changes the camber of the wheels soo that the top of the tires are in towards the car more than they should be. I just wore through a new pair of Continental ExtremeContact DW front tires in 8 months with 6/32 tread left in the middle but completely worn through on the inside edge of both tires. The drivers side actually wore completely through and I had a flat on the side of the highway. I just bought 2 new front tires and I needed a solution. They don't make a camber kit for the ISF however, you can get you a set of SBC adjustable ball joints designed specifically for Lexus ISx vehicles, that allow you to adjust camber. You can pick up 2 of these for around $215 or less shipped. PROBLEM #2- it wears your front struts/shocks out much faster than the stock height bc it makes them travel much more. I am hearing both sides popping now and I will have to replace those now also. I hope all that helps.
