18 year old Casey Jones and 21 year old Alex Bernard were both given life imprisonment, serving a minimum of 34 and 31 respectively.
Two other members of the group will be sentenced in June.
All four were found guilty of the murders of 21-year-old Aaron Carriere and 20 year old Josiah Manful.
The court heard how in the early hours of 1 March 2014 Aaron and Josiah were ambushed and boxed in as they drove along Montague Road, E11.
Four vehicles with seven passengers travelled in convoy along the Harrow Road. They passed the car containing Josiah and Aaron driving in the opposite direction with Aaron in the passenger seat and were then boxed in by the cars.
The occupants of the vehicles got out and surrounded the car containing Aaron and Josiah and began a frenzied and brutal attack.
Following the attack, Josiah was able to get out of the vehicle and staggered a short distance before collapsing. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
