Does anyone have any info about what is contained in the the F Sport "sport tuned suspension"?

It seems it does not contain the F Sport lowering springs, and sway bar kit. At least from what I can tell.

Suspension upgrades are the only packages that are a must have for me, but if I can have the F Sport upgrades installed after delivery, I wouldn't mind that. I'm unsure if there are additional changes in the F Sport package though.

I guess to answer my own question... I found the info on the Lexus website by comparing the base/premium models, F sport package specs, and F sport special edition specs.

F Sport package only contains "F Sport-tuned independent MacPherson struts". This is the only difference between the F Sport package and base model. Not sure what this entails exactly.

The F Sport special edition has the F Sport lowering springs, and Sway bar set.

So essentially, you would have to order the F Sport package, and install the F Sport lowering springs and F Sport sway bar set to have essentially the same ride as the Special Edition.

I'd love to know the differences between the stock and F Sport struts.

Do you care about ride height or just performance? I don't know that I've seen a good photo with the F-springs showing a huge drop. Road Magnet springs is a great option if you like a lower look and they perform very well.

in the 20 miles I've driven so far, it definitely feels different then a regular CT...

steering is much stiffer, handling is great...

I'm not really sure if I want to add the F-Sport Springs and Sways...hmmm

You wouldn't know until you have it. Definitely a must if u want better handling.

I see that there's some discussion (and mixed opinion) on this Forum regarding the merit of adding sway bars and/or lowering springs to one's CT200h F-Sport. I just bought my F-Sport and I love it. I'm now considering adding the F-Sport sway bars to the F-Sport package, and wonder if there is any further opinion of whether it's worth the cost. I saw one opinion in another area of the forum that said adding them won't have much effect due to the inability to shut off the stability and traction control features. Any further thoughts on that? I'm not a high-speed driver by any means, but in the absence of much horsepower, it's sure nice to feel like you can corner around anything.

Also, I wasn't planning on getting the springs, just the sway bars. Is one okay without the other? Is it dumb not to buy them in combination? Will the ride suffer for it?

Thanks much for any information.
