Default F-Sport Springs Installed on GS450h

Ok I finally got my springs installed, they took the shop about 4-5 hours. The ride is a lot smoother and pillow soft. The rear is a little low but it seems to line up, I'm gonna need to wait for them to really settle in but I'll post the pics up of what they look like before and after.

Nice. I heard that the springs do not apply to GS's with AVS? That's why I've been putting it off for my 450h. Does yours have it?

Did you buy the F-Sport shocks too? Do you still have the different suspension modes (air) available?

Yes it does, but it will look better once I put the rims on.

No, I kept the original suspension so I still have the ability to use sport mode and comfort mode.

I purchased them at the dealership, I get a discount from parts. I paid $220 I believe they go for $299 without tax. Sometimes people sell them on the classified you could look there if need be.

nice... the back does look lower although it does line up in the last pic. mind if i ask why you weren't going to do it?
i'm waiting on F-Sport springs ETA Dec. for my GS F-Sport, and just wondering why you were hesitant at the end.

Reason was that I have a 450h and since we have a battery in the trunk it weighs more so I was worried about it bottoming out or the shocks going quickly because of the extra weight we carry.
