Do your underbody braces make the car turn in tighter or something? Not sure what exactly these do.
TOM'S front lower chassis brace helps reinforce the front and mid portion of the chassis. The results, greatly improves the car steering response and handling capability.
Material: Steel with durable powder coating paint.
TOM'S rear lower chassis brace helps reinforce the mid and rear portion of the chassis. The IS300 being a RWD vehicle, rear produce unwanted flex under acceleration and cornering. The brace greatly improves the rigidity of the chassis for better handling.
Material: Steel with durable powder coating paint.
That's from L-tunedparts.com

welcome to THE SBRC or "Structural Bracing & Reinforcement Club" :wink:

I am member #1 i just started it... :lol:

Isn't it great..with yer coilovers it must feel sick.. .that is my final step.... besides Toms Front suspension rods.... you should get the 3 rear toms rods too those offer a nice benefit....& I really like to feel confident & comforted that the chassis will inevitably live longer & hold up better to the abuse or rather everyday driving on the shitty roads in our towns commuting daily, much less the hard carving happening up on the much smoother roads off the hills & canyons....
I run the TRD braces & Cusco CF rr & A-51 front SB's



braces & bracing IS GOOD :D

I have heard that the Toms Front suspension rods do not fit very well?!

Any comments/suggestions?
