Its not as bad as it sounds, I did a front rotor and pad change (using OEM) I changed cause of previous warped rotors.

Also changed the passenger side Ball joint, everything is good no wheel shake but there is a very very slight grinding/vibration in my break pedal, I’m thinking they just need to be warn in?

anyone else experience anything like this?

Took it for an alignment, turns out Lower control arm bushing is shot, now I’ve just searched and no one makes a bushing for an IS300? wow weak..

so my options are a $1600 kit from L-TunedParts
or
New control arm from Lexus $215.50/each

slim pickings, very disappointed.

You can get the used decent ones in here for cheap.

Used bushings :/

how about some custom bushings, I own a machine shop, making some bushings is a joke.. just where do I get Poly? or maybe another substitute of urethane that will work?

where can I get those used ones?

Try looking in the FS section. Sometimes some members carry the open-box brand new items. Frequently check there...
