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

Hey BigMike, have you had problems with your Lexon front lip now that you are lowered on the Tein's?

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 :rolleyes:

I've had my tein springs for a while now and have decided to install it this weekend on my 2008 ISF since it's getting warm in NJ...only thing is I lost the bumper cutting guide. Can you guys provide me where to cut bumper at for the front and rears? Great help is appreciated!...what are your thoughts on installing just the fronts? The rear stock drop is perfect...would ride quality be even better with both rear and fronts or same if just the fronts were installed.

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.
