My fenders are rolled and slightly pulled in the rear running 245/35/18.
Fronts are rolled running 215/40/18.

For track, I run 215/45/17.

Got a quick question for you guys; Just saw a discussion thread about rear toe brace that you can weld in? What is this dynamic toe issue addressed? Does the toe change while drifting? I'm more curious if this is something along the lines of active rear wheel steering that Nissan once had, can someone provide insight?

I haven't read that thread yet, but will look into it. Toe in the rear has never been an issue for me and I have the car pretty low, granted I have a kit on it. The IS300 never had any rear steer like those found in 240sx's, Z32s, and FC3S'.

Hmmm well the TRD thing I am thinking of, they adjusted the pickup point for the toe rod in the rear, this may very well be what they are referring too. We need FIGs in here!

got a list of the tons of issues i can shortcut to fix? i'd rather not discover them later, the car i'm picking up has greddy s coils and some other rear suspension goodies, i'll know later this week.

How are you guys solving the alignment issue, spc kit, figs mega arms? Camber and toe is extremely foreign to me.. Excuse the noobish-ness. I've never messed around with the alignment when it comes to drifting. When I get a chance I wanna put my car up. No track pics cause I've actually never tracked my IS.

My car has a very conservative drop, about 1.5" and the SPC kit is not enough for the rear. The adjustabel balljoint did an okay job on the front but the rear is another story. The rear is still at a negative 2 on camber so figs arms are going to be my next suspension purchase. The toe was way out of wack as well. I bought the Megan toe arms and it fixed that issue.

Very nice. I am glad to see this thread still alive and going. I am actually in the process of talking with Stance USA and if I can get at least 10-15 committed buyers they will make us some solid subframe bushings. Yes I know there are other companies out there, but most of which are JDM and take hella days to get. If people are interested please PM me and I can start a list. Also I am dropped more then 1.5 inches and I can get the rear camber back to -1 with stock arms.
