    Also, any rubbing? I have 255/35/20 so about 0.4 inch higher sidewall - would this cause issues? Thanks!

    They were just released in Japan and first shipments should arrive to the US in a couple weeks.

    I actually got my set a couple weeks ago but have only managed to get the rears on so far. My mechanic friend and I were having issues with the fronts and I was waiting on a knuckle spreader tool before we felt comfortable trying again. Should have the fronts on some time this week hopefully.

    I would love to see more feedback on these springs. IMO the Swift springs lower the car way too much, and the Eibachs seems to have people saying that they’re too bouncy and that stock rides better. Hopefully these are better than those two

    Me too. I think this is the direction I want to go... this drop combined with 255/35/20 and the drop really gets partially negated but we still get that full-feeling wheel well. Love that filling feeling (look).

    I will be sure to provide a review. I went with these based on ride quality. I wanted a ride that would be as close to stock as possible while being a little lowered. We will see!
