Again thats 110% your opinion terrasmak, and its not bargain crap its actually a nice setup that hasnt caused me headaches. Crap is when it leaks, rusts etc in under a year. And yet again your attacking me for my opinion? Glad the rest of the world is not like most of you guys we all would be a pretty miserable because everyone would have the same setup. Again I'd rather have sick wheels than suspension that cost $8k because I'm NOT racing doing autox drifting etc etc I'm just showing (even though morphis has been doing it with this suspension with no issues). As for all the bargain crap statement I guess ARK, SPC, Work, Pioneer, JWT, and EBC are all just china crap to? All your doing is showing your ignorance by not being able to except other opinions and attacking them on a online forum so what ever.

Time for update still no issues to date with about 5k miles on them. I ended up modifying the front coils to go lower by cutting some threads off the lower mounting fork where it screws into the body adjuster that screws onto the shock body and screwing the adjuster in further. Also took out the rear spring adjustment collar and cut down the spring mount till there was about a 1/4"-1/2" left. Also went to 2 clicks from full stiff on all 4 shocks and they are still fairly forgiving but definitely did tighten them up. Now modifying them to run Universal aero sport bags (remove the springs from coil over strut and replace with these bags) on the front and removing the rear spring and replacing them with bag rider 350z rear cup brackets and air lift d2500 bags.

Here is a picture of how it is sitting now (my wheel specs are now 18x9.5 -3 up front and 18x10.5 -10 rear with my 15mm spacers). Pictures and how to go bag over coil article coming soon...

Love that red top... an 06+ bumper would really set the car off.

All I have to say is WOW these are an amazing coil over for the price ($950 intro price with free shipping through AJW Performance in the vendor section). They only come in the OEM style but are a mono tube design with 32 way adjustable dampening and come in two different valving/spring options. They come in Street/Sport with 12k front springs and 9.9K rear springs and Racing/Drift with 14k front springs and 9.9k rear springs. I went ahead and bought the street/sport. During install only had two things worth noting they do NOT come with the rear strut bottom mounting nut and they do NOT have the mounting locations for abs/brake lines on front coils but no biggie though just zip tied the lines up front and went down and bought new bolts and nuts for mounting the rear shocks. Another thing worth noting is they do NOT come with extenders for the dampening adjustment in the rear but do use a 3mm allen key adjuster so Iím sure some other brands extenders will work. As for drop I'm not sure how much it dropped but it is on the ground, I also took out the rear spring mount rubber cone in the rear because it didnít get as low as I wanted with it in. As for ride and comfort they are AMAZING, again Iím completely slammed and have a stock ride no bouncy rice ride or harsh race car ride. My dampers are all set at 16 clicks from soft. Another nice thing about these coils is they are rebuildable and the rebuilds are done up in Massachusetts for $65 per side (they also have a 1 year warranty)!! So far I have had no abnormal noises but I will let you guys know if any show up. Feel free to PM me if you guys have any questions.

Finally here is a picture of them on my ZR (without rear spring mount cone) and a picture of what you receive in the box.
Hi just purchased the ISC but im having problems with the ride it bounces alot and stiff i got it set at max soft. But i used the spring rubber cone. You mentioned you did not use yours. Isn't that metal on metal contact and caused unwanted noise from the rear? Btw i drive a 370z
I hear some loud thudding sound from the rear when running into uneven roads not even driving fast. Please help.

I don't trust replacing the rear shock nuts it doesn't seem ok to do. I have a g37 coupe and there's a lot of play when it's on it's about an eighth of an inch too wide. Where did you get the hardware to replace it and have it run properly with no problems?

Just need to know, what's the minimum drop for the ISC coilovers?

Want to run these as a daily, and don't want too much of a drop, maybe .5-1" lower.

seems they say most can achieve 3" of drop
so 1 " should be no problem

though i never used these

so I wanted to give my opinion on these coilovers. bought these used from a member here. after owning stance and bc br I would say these are on par with stance in terms of quality. these are much better than bc. they are heavier and springs are beefier. the metals seem better. my only gripe is the clicker design for damper adjustment. two of my clickers were broken on arrival and I'll have to purchase two new ones. could be possible and not isc fault. I do like the fact that replacement cartridge can be had cheaper than BC. will update once I do some road testing.
