I'm looking at some Tanabe Sustec Pro S-OC Coilovers for the lexus i was wondering if anyone had ever used them or knows anyone that has had them. There only $773.00 seems like a pretty good price for a well known brand if i cant find any info on them ill probably stray back to these bc racing ive been looking at there just over a grand and i can order higher spring rates and there fully adjustable from the spring to offer better ride quality at lower ride heights let me know what you think and if you have any prior experience thanks in advance!

if you are wanted to be dumped its not goin to good on the track. When lowering your car it changes the geometry of the suspension mostly effecting camber and toe. As for the fender rubbing issue if you go with 2 stiff of a spring rate you will feel every bump in the road and wont even use the dampener. Wheel choose has alot to do with rubbing too. Most of the time you will need some type of fender mod. to fit a good size wheel. Both coilover you are lookin at are enrty level coils and would be good for street use and light track use. If you are lookin for something that will hold up to constant track abuse i would look at a higher lever coilover

im not say to run a super low offset wheel and spend a million dollars on coilovers. Im just sayin get what best fits what you are goin to do with the car. Also, when you lower your car it naturally creates camber and toe. So the lower you go the worse your camber and toe will be without having arms to fix the problem

i plan to have many adjustable links to solve all that as well as new bushings to give it that new car response again

yeah, why are you set on Tein as the brand out of curiosity? They tend to be sort of expensive, for a lower performance oriented product (for their price ranges).

Adjustable arms/links, with proper coilovers and springrates with a good fender roller should get you real set for autox and looking good.

I like tein because it's the only coilover I've had and I have yet to ride in a car that had the same handling and rebound characteristics
