Default 2018 Lexus GS 350 F Sport

Hey guys. I need help to find a coiliver that is compatible for this gen. I just bought the car a couple weeks ago. Thanks!

Oh cool. Do you sell any coilovers? Can you explain to me what are spring rates? And what rates are good for the street and daily drive. I want a stiffer suspension than the stock suspension right now. It's too bouncy. But i always don't want it to be rock hard.

to my knowledge there is no aftermarket coilover system that is compatible with the adjustable fsport (normal, sport, sport+) settings, so keep that in mind when considering going full coilovers!

There is, the Tein flex avs Coilovers and the J5 coillovers are the only ones I know of that work with the AVS.

Josh, I'm on the fence about ordering those RSR Active Coilovers from you but another member on here that have those said the springs are very soft.
He is already rubbing when going over speed bumps or carrying a load of people with 19x10.5 in the rears. And he's not even slammed, just 1.5" drop in the rears.
I plan on running 20x10.5 in the rears, so I'll definitely rub.

Any ideas if we can order custom spring rates with the RSR Active Coilovers? Hard to find any reviews on these because nobody else runs them.
Don't care for BC because I'll lose AVS function. Anything else you can recommend?

Unfortunately not. But you can keep the car in sport mode. :P

I was unaware that coils existed that allow you to keep the AVS functionality! i was on undecided on springs with AVS vs. coils and this was one of the main factors... anyone else have feedback from the RSR/tein flex/j5 coils? thanks in advance.

J5 would be great if they responded, but they are over in korea and getting parts is a pain. I would stay away from J5, I think RSR is really good and second would be the Teins in my opinion.
