Default If you have lowering springs would you help me?

I need some help from the Club Lexus community. I have a 2001 GS430 and am looking to buy some lowering springs. There is a lot of helpful pictures on this forum but I would like some actual numbers. If you have a GS430 with either the Eibach, Swift, or the H&R lowering springs and have just 2 mins you can help me greatly.

I would even accept a GS400 and last choice a gs300. I need the measurement from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender in the front and rear. I ask this because it eliminates the tire, wheel, and camber combinations from the equation.

Please post the model and the dimensions. Getting a consensus would be very helpful to me so if the same combo is already posted still post to confirm actual numbers. If you also know someone that is still active on here and they may not see this can you please let me know so I can PM them directly.

For example my car
2001 GS430 Stock Springs F=15.5" R=14.5"

Local car
2000 GS400 Eibach Springs F=14.125" R=14"
I post this because Eibach advertises 1.2" and 1.2"

try searching within this thread. I couldn't find any with those springs you listed and with stock wheels but should be resourceful.

I have looked at all 18 pages more than once, but there are only pictures and some even are posting pictures of other peoples cars not really knowing the true setup. For example there is a supposed DF210 sprung car that clearly is sitting way to low in the back to be a DF sprung car and was not posted by the owner of the car.

Other forums that I frequent post the distance from center of wheel to fender because this eliminates the different wheel and tire combo that everyone runs and shows the true height of the spring setup.

Perfect. Thanks. I saw your car in another thread and liked how it sits. That's what I'm shooting for. I just couldn't make a comparison because i didn't see the tire size.

here's pics of my car. 98GS400 with factory chrome 18' staggered rims. Only dropped the front so far. Eibach springs with 1' drop with bilstein struts. 1st 2 pics are before & other 2 is after. This way you'll have a general idea how it'll look
