as far as knuckles go, Heatmaker has IS knuckles in the works. just a waiting game at this point.

|Primernovaben||Oh yeah. I've talked to the minty fresh guy, the risky devil guy and a few others on knuckle setups and it seems like everyone is in testing stages lol. Just waiting for someone to have a tested and proven setup to pull the trigger. I mean there is a figs kit for sale locally... Wonder if he would trade for a t56 :D|

|BOXCAR||Anybody running super high spring rates in front like chaser specs? i was looking into 22k for front and 14k for rear. any input? Just want to be lower without killing aero.|

|Piggity||Just installed some new steering arms on the weekend. I have so much more angle now, I think these are about an inch shorter than stock with less ackerman.|

Cusco aren't slimmer, they bang sooner when low. SerialNine will have the most clearance but I don't know about the minimum amount of negative camber you can run with them
I would just try to get some Moon Face low angle ball joints and poly bushings for stock upper arms. You'll have a little more clearance with the LA ball joints on top of cut knuckles
My suggestion on the sway bar location is to get everything else where you want it and find out. If you've got clunking once done, unbolt the sway bar and see if it's still there. Then you know lol
IS is bad about the end links clunking when lowered either way

What's up all.
Transmission: 5-speed, car came with an ACT stage 2 clutch + resurfaced OEM flywheel
Suspension: Stance GR+ coilovers, Battle Version rear toe links, SPC front adjustable ball joints
Differential: stock torsen
Engine Mods: intake and exhaust, clutch damper delete
Alignment: don't remember, but the toe was completely off by the end of the event above
Will be putting a Kaaz 2 way into auto diff housing, FIGS steering rack/#1 + #2 /differential bushings, Hotchkis sways, SerialNine RCA's, Battle Version rear traction arms, and Driftworks front and rear upper control arms (amongst other things) for the upcoming season.
Currently have little to no upper arm clearance up front, which will only get worse adding beefier front uppers. Planning on getting the knuckle cut, if that doesn't resolve the issue then I may be looking into a thinner upper arm option like Cusco/SerialNine.
Also, is it worth investing in the FIGS sway relocation? Hadn't really heard of it previously and now I'm curious.

car is pretty much stock with coilovers and drifts amazing

First a question, after a drift on wet surface I always suffer from understeer and a lot, any advise on how to get rid of that?
CAR: Lexus IS200 Sport (September 2000, European car)
TRANSMISSION: 6 speed manual
DIFFERENTIAL: Stock Torsen LSD
ENGINE MODS: stock 1G-FE
FRONT (L and R)
camber: -1°41' and -1°23'
toe: 0°04' and -0°02'
REAR (L and R)
camber: -0°36' and -0°22'
toe: -0°16' and -0°21'
camber maxed out on the front and on the back closest to 0° with stock setup on the 2000 Sport version (10mm lower than the normal version I was told)
[only picture I could find of me skidding the car]
