SXE10 Coil Spring Set

I've already done the searching but didn't get a clear answer. Do anybody know if SXE10 coil spring kit would be compatible with US Spec is300. Help appreciated! THANKS!

it'll most likely be a little stiffer than stock. It should be perfectly fine.

Just picked up a used TRD sportivo set. Hopefully I would be able to install it soon. Here some pictures of it.

Wouldn't the heavier American engine throw the dynamics of the JDM suspension way off?

From my perspective, I don't think so. It drive GREAT! It's a little softer than stock and the turning is amazing compared to stock. Overall I think that the ride is amazing and smooth and the corning had really improved.

If you want better cornering look into sways. Sways for handling, shocks for ride comfort.
