Give Your SF a Slick Dropped Stance: Marketplace Find

By -
Lowered Lexus GS F Side

RSR springs and custom wheel spacers lower the Lexus GS-F and widen the stance just enough.

The early 4th generation Lexus GS F came from the factory with an aggressive stance, but a small suspension drop and slightly wider tires go a long way in making the high performance GS even sportier. The problem is that buying lowering springs, wider wheels and wider tires can quickly get very expensive, but in flipping through the Club Lexus Marketplace, we found a $350 package that will give your Lexus that sportier stance.

Springs and Spacers

This marketplace post was made by “narekat23”, who had these items on his early 4th generation GS F, but when he turned it in at the end of his lease period, he pulled the aftermarket upgrades off and put them up for sale on the website.

Dropped Lexus GS F Passenger Front

Hey Everyone! I recently turned in my lease on my GS350 F sport rear wheel drive. I have these RSR Superdown springs and custom made spacers for available for $350 for all. Please let me know if your interested. The car looked amazing with both installed.

The OP also included a spread of pictures of the items themselves, along with several shots of his GS F with the drop springs and spacers installed.

Product Details

According to the RSR website, these springs will work on any rear-drive 4th generation GS (not just the F) and depending on the year and model, they should drop the sporty sedan by 1.4- to 2.0-inches. That sounds like a big drop, but as you can see in the pictures here of the OP’s car and on the RSR website, the “SuperDown” springs tastefully lower the GS F.

As for the wheel spacers, they are custom made, extending the front wheels out by 15 millimeters while the rear wheels are pushed out 20 millimeters. These provide the look of a wider stance without the cost of the aftermarket wheels and tires, allowing owners to get the more aggressive look with the stock rollers.

In looking around online, the RSR SuperDown springs cost around $310 while 20-millimeter wheel spacers cost around $100 to $150 a pair. In other words, if you were to buy the springs and the spacers new, you would likely pay at least $550, but in the Club Lexus Marketplace, you can score these items for just $350.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
