    Hello all, I'm fairly new to this forum and I've done some research but never found the solution to my problem. So my problem is that my driver side rear brake clip keeps falling off.

  8. Stop, Drop and Roll
    Hello everyone! I am fairly new to this forum as well as IS300 ownership. I have a 2005 and I am in need of better brakes. I am looking to get Calipers, Rotors, Pads, and new brake lines.
