Did you experience any head lamp leveling issues?
Have you had the car aligned since installation?
if so, are the front and rear camber results within the Lexus spec tolerance?
If you feel your lights are too low you can adjust them very easily. I did that on mine.

nice... in the 2nd pic, she looks dumped (almost). wheels would definitely complete it.

The rear is only a little out of spec, but it looks like you'll need an alignment kit unless you do not mind uneven tread wear. Not sure why the front right corner is so out of whack though.

Still kinda hard to tell if the tires are actually under the fender.

Why is the camber -0.7 on the driver's side but -2.1 on the passenger's side? I'd expect them to be much closer than that after the spring installation.

As for camber, negative camber up front will increase cornering grip (decrease understeer) but decrease straight line stability. Negative camber in the rear will increase cornering grip (increase understeer) but decrease straight line grip. I think the GS is a fairly neutral-handling car (for something of this weight class) so I wouldn't want to tweak the camber differences front to rear to too great an extent.

Looks good sitting lower with the RSR Springs! Can't wait to see what wheels you end up with and any other mods you may have in store!

Great looking F Sport. Did you happen to put any wheel spacers on the front or rear?
