Default does anyone change the F-sport spring at Lexus dealer?

I got message from local Lexus dealer that they can upgrade my CT with new F-sport spring:
"Lexus offers F Sport lowering springs for your CT, which will be firmer and will lower the vehicle approximately 1. They sell for $299 for the set, plus labor at $882, which includes alignment."

Do you guys think if it worth it? anyone did it already?
Thanks for the options.

The bonus of doing it at the dealer is that the springs will follow your factory bumper to bumper warranty. If you have it installed elsewhere, the springs are only warranted for 1 year from purchase.

$882 with alignment is not bad but considering that the warranty is in tact and applied to the springs, It's worth its weight in gold.

That's alot of money for a spring install, to be honest that's really not a good deal considering they can be installed in a little over a hour.

I was quoted by my dealership $855 but that was installation of both f sport springs and the sway bar kit. That included alignment too.

it depends on the person. I personally would have the sway bar kit installed too because I originally wanted a an F Sport Special Edition and they were difficult to get at the time.. i have the regular f sport and would like to eventuallly upgrade it close to the SE.
