    Hey everyone, was wondering if anyone has found lowering springs or knows of a company developing springs for the 21 IS in AWD. Every option I've seen out there states "RWD Only," however, looking at the Lexus part numbers between the OE springs both AWD and RWD are the same. Any advice? Thanks!

    Welp as the title states, my 2002 is300s caster is very low. So for context, I got an alignment done to my car after installing some adjustable rear arms and toe arms to correct those values since the car is lowered a bit. Everything came out amazing with toe and camber across the whole car and...

  7. Basic Help & Repair
    I have an auto 05 is300 and a couple months back I hit a curb on my driver side wheel and ever since then my passenger side has been making a rotational noise no matter what speed I am going. It sounds like a repetitive thumping that gets faster as I accelerate. I have tried getting an alignment...

    What’s up fellas I’ve got a 03 is300 and I threw some coliovers on last night and the bolt that meets the coil over and the lower control arm has fucked up threads. I can’t seem to find a replacement bolt anywhere just wondering if y’all have had the same issue or know a place to find one...

    I have a noise coming from the front of the car that I think I can best describe as sounding like a rusty gate closing. I managed to get a video today and you can hear the noise very clearly: (You'll need to un-mute the video to hear the noise: The noise only occurs when I'm...
  10. Stop, Drop and Roll
    My car's been making a groaning/creaking/clunking noise in the front when when the suspension loads or unloads (braking, turning, etc.), so I jacked it up to do the ol' tug test for ball joints and tie rod ends. There was no play, but I noticed something odd when I was looking around: the upper...

    Having some suspension issues on the left front of my 01 is300. Read a few thing stating it might either be the lower control arms or the struts. Anyone have an thoughts or information regarding this. It would be much appreciated. Thanks
  13. Stop, Drop and Roll
    Recently bought this 2004 with these wheels and suspension already installed. Can't afford to chew through tires at the moment and need adjustable control arms. I have a few questions though. I was looking at Megan Racing and I guess the type IIs are only for drops of 2+ inches. With my current...

    So last night I replaced the front shocks with KYB shocks, and both also got the KYB front shock mounts. Everything went seemingly well (after a frustrating 5-6 hours) but as soon as i went out for a drive and came off my driveway onto the street, I noticed a clunk. I cautiously drove around the...
