Suspension Changes 2011 - 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, After recently purchasing a ISF 2011 model, I was convinced Lexus had perfected the suspension issues previous models faced in particular the firm ride when driving "around town".

Unfortunately I recently read that more changes to the suspension were happening for the Australian and euro release of the ISF 2012 model. I find the 2011 model's ride to be OK as a daily driver and I wish it was just a tad softer when doing the speed limit....

This article briefly discusses the improvements the 2012 model will be receiving: http://www.carsguide.com.au/news-and-reviews/car-news/lexus_isf_updated_for_2012

Is it possible to retro-fit these changes into my 2012 model? Do you think I would get a smoother ride or would it be marginal???

These 2 recent US based reviews go on to say the 2011 suspension is just about right.... so I’m a little confused!!

Any suggestions would be much appreciated....!

Ps it’s a cracking car and so glad I didn’t go for the c63, rs5 or m3 all of which are overpriced in Australia....

I think its a matter of opinion.

I prefer stiff suspension in general and I really like my 08 ISF suspension setup........I just wish it had the mechanical LSD.
