Default HELP!! 2006 GS300 AWD lowering springs

Hey guys,

I am thinking of lowering my car, but not sure which one to go with. I am actually a bit confused because some springs dont work on AWD.

so far, I think Tanabe NF210 or HR sports works well with GS300 awd.

Can anyone confirm this ???

Thanks,

The Tanabe springs WILL work on AWD. I use the DF210 because i wanted to be lower.

Beware: Once you lower an AWD, it more than likely will vibrate during idle....good luck!

Thanks for your input.

What if I get a coilover set? Will it vibrate less? It's my first time lowering. Is it really that bad?

Coilovers are the same i believe since it has to do with the height of the car. The feel is subjective to how accepting you are of it. For example, my wife HATES it while i am willing to accept it.

Thanks for help guys,

I think I am more comfortable now with suspension and etc.

I think I will try springs first and see how it is. It's my first time lowering.

Thanks!
