Hello, I'm looking to swap the springs on my CT200h from the factory F-sport springs to the standard springs. The reason being is that my wife is driving the car more now and is looking for a bit better ride. I'm comfortable doing the work myself as I've completed this task on many other cars. My question is what all is required from a parts perspective. Can I just swap the springs or will I be needing new mounts/spacers for the springs to set in? Thanks in advance.

All you should need is the new springs. You will definitely want to rent a set of spring compressors though.

Are the factory f sport springs lower than the non f sport?

The fsport springs sit about an 1" lower than the standard springs. It makes for nice handling but without being able to defeat the esc you can never reach the limits anyways.

I have a full set of tools including spring compressors so I will be completing the job safely. I know with other cars there have been some different pieces required to swap springs, not just a simple swap. It sounds like this should be pretty straight forward however.

Did you already purchase the non f sport springs?
