Arrow I just received my Tanabe TNF112 lowering spring

I just received my Tanabe TNF112 lowering spring

Just to make sure the ones labeled "NF" go in front and the one labeled "NR" go in the back ? And they go up with the text in the right direction (readable)





I will try to get them installed tomorrow, but that will be hard as I'm leaving town in the afternoon

Where did you order them, and how is installing them for you (and how much for install)?

I got them from Carson Toyota and I'm looking for a local installer (I'm in San Diego), I haven't found one yet so I do not know the price yet.
BTW if someone know a shop in San Diego that does a great job at this...

I have them installed tomorrow, I have been quoted $450 for the job, including wheel alignment.

Smile I got it done !

I finally get them installed... what a pain ! It took them 2 days to complete the job ! Keep in mind I have the Hybrid with the electronic adaptive suspension... It seems that to reach the rear top mount of the shock you have to get trough the trunk (?). Another problem is with the alignment, they couldnít get the right side back in spec, the left side with okay, but the right side seem to be 0.5degree to negative (-1.6 instead of -1.1). Beside all that Iím delighted with the result, it looks much better, much more aggressive, the 18Ē wheel fit perfectly the wheel arch; itís a beauty...

Wow that looks really good!

Too bad there's still nothing for the AWD's

That is one of the most incredible looking cars I've seen w/ stock rims. The stance is perfect! How's the ride quality, handling, etc?

The TNF112 are given for 1.1" in the front and 0.8" in the back for the GS350. Keep in mind that my car the 450h is about 400lbs heavier, so I believe we are looking at a little more than that.
The ride is very comfortable, it's not bumpy or jumpy, and honestly I can't tell the difference with the OEM spring from behind the wheels. When engaging the sport mode on the suspension, the ride feels more rigid and more planted (just like with the OEM...)

These springs will work on the AWD editions. Quite a few AWD CL members use them.

Thanks!

Thought it might be listed on L-Tuned that's all.
