Default GS450H Lowered properly

Hello Norcal Fam,

Wanted to share a great experience at a local shop. Big Ups to Andrew and his crew at Sonic MS! They helped me install some Gs450h rated springs direct from Japan. Tanabe NF210 part# GWS191NK.

For those that aren't in the gs loop, GS450h designed springs are not sold in USA. I had to go straight to the source..."overnight parts from Japan!" Sonic MS installed the springs with no fuss and did a fantastic job. It took them 3 hours to get the job done and the results are great! Everyone at the shop was knowledgeable and the shop space was kept in good order. I would highly recommend reaching out to them for your needs.

Don't be afraid to spot me!

They have not settled yet. Here is the more detailed post on the springs.

I look at my thread title and it is misleading. I should of said "GS450h lowered properly with proper rated springs."

Then again I dedicated another whole thread for it. No one in USA sells gs450h rated springs. So I went the JDM route. With shipping it ran a little under 300.

Hey, how much did they quote you for installation by chance? I have a shop quoting me 540 total with alignment.

It's been quite some time since I had this done... I remember a figure of $320...but that could of been my exhaust install. I wouldn't bother with an alignment right after as the springs do need to settle first. So if you do get an alignment done you will need to do it again in a couple months.

Contact SonicMs...They are very fair.
