Well...

Got the swifts installed tonight. Not too impressed with the results. I took the coilovers out completely, cleaned them, adjusted them to 5mm of preload all around, and they still ride the same as before.

I did notice it absorbs smaller bumps a little better, but on bigger bumps (~3/4" or bigger) it still makes a slamming noise. Also, the ride is still pretty bouncy, even with damping at 10 from full soft all around.

Any input on what I can do to help with the ride? Or is this about as good as it gets? I'm kind of bummed because I spent my money on the springs and am really having minimal positive results. Oh well, maybe I just had my hopes too high.

What about lessening the preload?

KLZCYA: same suggestion if it's a warranty issue, contact ISC directly through the email address on their site

Gregonfire: Unfortunately, that sounds like exactly the results I was expecting to hear.
I still think the loud slamming clunk sounds like the issue I had, and that was a problem with the valving inside the shocks. Which means it can't absorb the large bumps fast enough, and the car ends up riding more on the springs than the shocks, hence the bounce.
No adjustment in ride height our pre-load could solve either of those problems for me, but the new shafts fixed both issues completely

It's a shame you're not closer, it's be so much easier to show you the difference than try to explain it

Yeah that's what I figured as well. If ISC won't give them to me, I'm going to have to wait at least another couple months before I can have the extra $$ to purchase all-new shafts.

could probably resell the springs you took off and recoup enough for new shafts

Here are some pictures of my setup finally complete.

ISC coilovers(obviously), dropped 2inch in front 1.5 in rear, RPF1s 17x8 and some nice hankooks!

Definitely some kinks to be worked out, but figured I would post these pictures I took today in the meantime.

From AMF Motorsports, Suspension Specialty shop

"We've also sorted out the tool situation, and took one of the shocks
apart and were pleasantly surprised with the quality and engineering
we found inside. They will be very easy to revalve for us as they
utilize the same 12mm I.D. shims as –hlins"

And great work coming through with the dyno plots!
Also, I'm trying to figure out if you are using linear or progressive shocks here. They sorta look linear but Im not sure since the charts stop at 6in/sec. Are street cars typically not going to see speeds higher than 6in/s? Everyone says their slow speed response is great because their body roll is eliminated... Am I getting the jist of that?

Same shims as ohlins? More awesomeness!

I'm excited for these things. If they work as well as I expect them to, I'll probably change my supra over to these from my current eibach/tokico illumina2 setup!

Anyone in here with these installed on a gc8?

I need to know what my initial setting should be to get a 3/4" gap from my tire to the fender lip with a 25" (225/45/17) tire. I have a feeling that I have mismatched rear hubs because when BOTH rears are at the same total length and preload, my driver side is tucking tire and my pass side is about 1/2" gap. I have to add almost a FULL inch of thread on the driver side to get it to be even fender gap side to side. Ie: left/rear has 6" total body from top of lower locking ring to top edge of spring perch/bottom of insulator. The right/rear has 5" total with the same measurement.

Im thinking someone may have replaced one of my rear hubs with the wrong one attempting to correct a bad wheel bearing but idk which hub is wrong since idk what a gc/gm/gf shock body length measures to with our coil overs

I have had my ISC N1's on for a little over a year now. Recently I started to hear a dull metal on metal rubbing noise when turning. Mine came with thrust bearings preinstalled. Do the thrust bearings need to be lubed? Any suggestions?

Just got off the phone with ISC.

They were very helpful and are getting me all squared away with new shafts. I just want to give a huge thanks to those guys for taking care of me and the rest of their customers. Will post a review after I get the new shafts installed. Thanks again ISC.

Hey everyone. I should be getting my coils this Friday and I'm a noob when it comes to coils. I was wondering if its possible to adjust the camber in the rear because If possible I don't want much camber so I don't rear out my tires. I'm not going the hellaflush route. Ideally I want about a finger gap all around. Any info would help thanks!

Unless you ordered your coilovers specifically with rear camber plates, the only way to adjust the camber is with camber bolts. Or you can order the rear camber plates.
