They are adjustable, you can pick your height by adjusting with a spanner wrench.

I'd also like to hear some feedback on Tein Comfort Sport specifically for the IS-F.

Handling?

Ride Quality?

Worthwhile aftermarket mod?

Thanks.

I recently had the tein Comfort Coilover installed on my F, I had it done at the same time as I had the Sikky Headers installed. I was able to lower my car and have all the weight counter balanced, The ride is smooth as silk and it handles extremely well. I would definitely recommend the Tein Comfort Coilovers. When you install the coilovers you consistantly have the ride you want which does have 16 adjustments, therefore going into sport mode does not make the ride rougher, it stays to how you have them set. You can purchase the parts to electronicly change your setting from in the car, but mine are set in the middle and it feels great just cruising around town, sport driving, and alot more stable at 160 mph.

Well this is what i think i need. Here's my story.
I bought my chrome 20'' rims and wheels 3 years ago and i had no height or rubbing problem. Last summer i rode on the stock wheels. This summer i decided to paint my chrome rims and put it back on. What i notice is that my rear tires rub now on certain bumps and front have gap between fender and tire. Sat every winter...Think my rear stock suspension sag??

I've ran Tein comfort sports on my F for almost a year now. All I can say is it's definitely stiffer then stock when setted to the stiffest. It handles very well and noticably less body roll. For normal street driving I have all 4 corners at 7 clicks away from stiffest and it still handles well. Like what others think these aren't the same floaty feel Tein CS's like how it feels on the is250 and is350. I don't feel any floatyness at all with mine. Spring rates for the F's applications are 12k/10k which are alot stiffer then the is250/is350 cs's spring rates of 7k/7k. I also have the EDFC unit so I can control the settings inside the car instead of getting out and ripping out panels in the rear to set the rebound/compression which I find a hassle especially in a luxury car. What I really like about the EDFC is when I'm on a super bumpy road all it takes is 1 push of a button to go to softer setting. With the EDFC u can have 3 different memory settings. I made my 3 race/street/comfort

Have them on my car for around 4 months now.....
No regrets..... much better than stock in terms of both comfort and handling...
adjustments are very easy....
the backs were a bit hard to install as you have to take the boot lining out to get to it....

So I guess the next question would be pricing? Were there any exceptionally good deals? Where did you get them from? And finally, about how long do they take to install?

08 ISF- Pearl White, 35/50% tint, Sikky Headers, smoked tail lights, 245/35/19 & 275/30/19 Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta . Much more coming soon! (Any recommendations for intake?)

Just hit up a couple of the forum sponsors and you'll find the best deals shipped. You won't find anything below 1800 though with EDFC as there is no profit margin for them. GL.
