Default Gs300 awd coilover question

Hello everyone,

My apologies if I am reposting this question. I've been on clublexus forums looking for the answer but unfortunately, I can't find the answer I'm looking for....I was wondering if anyone encountered the same situation I have, and I was wondering if anyone can help me..

I own a 2006 Lexus GS 300 AWD that currently have Teins Lowering Springs on a stock shocks. I wanted to upgrade to coilovers and a local Tein Dealer suggested that I should get the Teins Comfort Sport...

After researching Teins Comfort Sport, I realized that Teins CF lower portion (the assembly that connects the control arm) of both Front (Driver and Passenger Side) are totally different from my stock...It seems like I am missing an "AWD Bracket"....

My questions are:

1. If Teins CF are compatible with 06 GS300 AWD, is there an "AWD Bracket" that I need to purchase separately?

2. If Not, Is there any coilovers (any Brand) that are made for 06 GS300 AWD?


Thanks for your time and Help

Regards,

They do not make them for AWD. I cant recall the name but if you look in the vendor section there are coils for your AWD. You may even find a used set if you want under the 3gs or 2gen ISx50 section. Hope this helps out.

mike is right, i can't believe the tein dealer is making such a terrible mistake... they do NOT have coilover setup for the awd at all. playing from memory, i think BG has coilovers for the 3gs (could be wrong on name), the only one i can recall

Correct, The Teins will not fit and the only company currently making a set of coilvoers for the AWD GS and IS is BC Racing.

We actually have a few sets in stock if you're interested, feel free to PM us
