Lexus GS300 Sedan

in 1998 with 225 horsepower the hood, a 5-speed automatic rear wheel drive and 16 diameter wheels and tires, the GS300 is one of the world’s newest sport sedans. But as always the question is How can it be improved for more drivers?

Typically one of the first changes is to the vehicle’s original wheels and This allows the drivers to out their favorite wheel and tire type, and often in the installation of a Plus Size which combines lower tires with larger wheels. A correct Plus wheel and tire package has the same overall diameter as the wheels and tires and keeps the computer controlled, speed functions operating as designed.

The step is to lower the vehicle. important to note that a vehicle’s original springs always ends with results. Cutting off coils or stock springs with will adversely affect the rate and internal stresses and prevent them from the vehicle’s suspension correctly. engineered aftermarket sport are not only designed to fit the vehicle, but enhance its appearance and its performance all at the time.

Vehicle appearance is improved in two Sport springs will lower vehicles to give a more aggressive stance and the vehicle’s fender well gap distance between the top of the tire and the of the wheelwell). When the vehicle is from the side, the wheel and will appear to properly fit in the when the tire’s sidewall is greater than the vehicle’s well gap. But when the have less sidewall than the vehicle has fender gap, it may look out of proportion and create the illusion that the has been lifted. Sport help complete the vehicle’s by lowering the vehicle and reducing well gap.

Sport springs the vehicle’s ride height and higher spring rates are carefully tuned to the vehicle. not only assures sufficient capacity, but lowers the vehicle’s of gravity for added stability and the vehicle’s responsiveness by reducing movement. This allows the to function more effectively they are asked to perform at limit.

Sportline sets typically provide vehicle lowering (as low as Eibach engineers say you can realistically go on the street) of 1.5 to 2.0 and further increase the spring to improve handling and help the car from bottoming out over and rough pavement. The Sportline set’s goal is to make the car as low as

Since a Lexus isn’t a Sportline spring set candidate don’t really expect to see of them slammed to the ground, do Eibach only offers a spring set for our GS300 test

In order to get a better appreciation of how a and tire package, and a wheel, and spring package can improve an stock vehicle’s looks and we conducted a Real World Ride and Performance Track Drive using three GS300 test cars as follows:
