Default Swift Spec R Spring on 17+ GS F

So i am looking at getting Swift Spec R springs for my 17 GS F and i wanted to know has anybody has them installed on 17+ MY GS F since it comes with F Adaptive Suspension? If so how is the overall performance and ride quality?

Please let me know.

Thanks,

It will not effect the adaptive suspension!

Best springs on the market!

I’m running then on a ‘17 GSF. Ride is smooth, pretty much stock feel or very close to it. No impact on adaptive suspension and drop evens out the car nicely without the rake you may normally see. Highly recommended.

Seen this car on a site recently , beautifully car brotha . Those rims in dark bronze is what I would love to do .
Iím running tanabe nf210 , I really like the ride . I only test drove the car before putting the springs on . So I wouldnít know how stock really feels like . But the ride now no complaints. And it sits nicely .!

That's the height Lexus should've shipped the GS F. Nicely done, prefect drop!

You guys aren't worried about potentially shocks getting blown?

as of now , they work perfect , I know in the future I will put Tomís full coil overs . No complaints on the ride that tanabe gives . It dropped it 1.8 in the front .8 in the back leveled the car and sets nice

That kit is by Novel as you can see it’s low to the ground maybe 2 1/2 inches from the ground

It’s actually not that bad. At the lowest point, it’s about 3.5-3.75” from the ground.
