Looking For Stronger Gs 400 Trunklid Springs

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a set of rear trucklid springs for a GS400 with a rear spoiler. My GS has a spoiler, but has the factory springs. The trunklid had to held up or it will drop. I thought about taking the springs to work and heating and reshaping them, but I am not sure that the steel will take that very well. Any help would be much appriciated.

Thanks

Nick

So I take it moving the springs to the higher tension position did not help?

So they are adjustable? I did not know that, I will take a look and see if they can be retensioned.

Thanks for the info.

Although Lexus do have higher tension rods, you can try to set the current ones to highest before buying the new ones. This might help:

That worked like a champ. One of the springs was not even locked into place, it was just floping around. Thanks for the info guys.

Glad it worked out for you. A free solution is usually the best solution. ;)
