I didnt really want to spend mega bucks on coilover to discover there uncomfortable plus there not in my budget, id say a full set of coilovers would set me back €500 or more??...These are a spare set I have and he told me there where the same as whats in it, but he thinks they might be off a IS200, but I think the standard altezza ones are lower.....theses are the rear and there roughly 1ft in hight

Mine is on coilovers and it's not uncomfortable at all. Actually mine is better than most cars i've been in with just lowering springs in them.

I dont think they're lower to be honest, mine was like driving around in a Monster Truck when I got it as well, definitely get the springs anyway and if you can push the boat a bit further go for the coilovers

I remember reading that the Altezza standard spring were 15mm lower that the is200 so just need to check height first...to be honest the money isnt there for coilovers...
