Checked out Clublexus and it seems some of its members have had some luck with F-Sport springs on the AWD GS350. Thanks for the heads-up! The search generally hasn't been going well, however; I continue to question if it's worth pursuing.

@ ZN6 - much love for the winter driving survival guide. Not sure exactly where in the original query you felt that I was asking for it, but it's nice to feel loved...homie.

For what it's worth, I'm a big believer in winter tires. In my 20 years of driving, I've never gone a winter without a set. My previous cars, both Civics lowered about 1.75 inches, have always been equipped with winter tires from November to February, and have never been stuck in snow (removed my front lip for winters!) so my Canadian Tire shovel has sat in my cars' trunks for decades without seeing action. And I attended school at SFU. And lived in the Tri-Cities. On a mountain. With Vancouver's relatively mild winters and the height adjustability of coilovers, I think I'll make it.

Yup, as previously stated, I only want to achieve a "semi" VIP look. I'm OK with being limited to one inch of lowering. That's OK, nobody needs to understand it, or like it. I wasn't looking for approval. OK, maybe I was. A little bit.

ISx50 owners on CL are saying they can see a difference in the rears with the f sport springs. fronts don’t look like they’ve changed much. GL.

I think if you posted pictures of an example of what you wanted, it might help people understand better. It's kind of hard to understand what "semi" VIP is, because that's basically a gray area that only you would know is too much or too little. This thread needs pictures.

Wasn't there a place in the lower mainland that made custom springs?
