I do have a GS 430 and I want to do my suspension but I want to make the right move, any suggestions? I don't want to crack my pockets either.
To answer your questions:

1) I only changed springs (shocks are still oem)

2) Yes I have comfort/sport button (i.e. AVS). This switch has nothing to do with lowering, only adjusts the damping of the shocks. See these links for more details:

3) see my mod signature link for wheel/tire sizes

The car looks great bro! After reading this thread I was just wondering if you ever ended up switching out for the coilovers, if not, was there anymore settling/sagging on the springs? Any idea how low you ended up getting from the original stock height?

I self installed these springs a few months ago, great spring and very even lowering front to back. Took a week or two to settle. Really happy all round. 20x8.5 + 20x10 I heated+hammered my guards a little but suspect most will not have to. OEM Shocks.

I do drive my car to its limits and know how to get the power down. I very much feel that the active switch now has a bigger variate when you switch it between the modes. I was very worried about losing it and partly why I brought this spring - Very very happy with the result. I take the kids to school but also fun when the time is right.

Buy these springs. :-)

Whitebait, is your GS AWD? if so I have a few questions. I bought the same springs but read of people having problems when installed on AWD. Can I email you direct?

Hi, I'm 2wd. Could only be the front that is different?

Hey Whitebaiit. Can you please answer me this. Did you have to get a camber kit for your GS 430. Ive lowered my 06 GS 430 on Sustec NF210 tdf112s. Wheel alignment guy (NZ) tells me theres no adjustment for camber. All 4 tyres are wearing on the inside.

Hey, yeah I'm doing okay with wear. Little bit in the rear but fronts holding in well. I have had to get my rears swapped around to get full life. Not expecting to do this on the front.

Also had alignment guy say no camber but also that rears wear faster when pushing ya car as the front lifts up and pushes rear down!!

Maybe try a lower profile tyre to level it out?
