The infamous Sakataj... you've beat me (and alot of people) at a few classifieds purchases... nice to see the vehicle where they have been going. Thanks for sharing your ride, nice to have a car to the name.

whats wrong with a massage while driving lol...i know what you mean though man.


Tony,(TMF) so after hours my mechanic lets me use his shop and do my own work their so i removed the OEM front lower bar and installed my TRD bar. i DIDNT know that the side portions of the lower bar were reused. i also bought the 6 bolts that hold the OEM one up from the local lexus dealership but what i didnt know was that 2 of the bolts need to be about a 1/2 longer as the bars thicker.....i ended up spending 20 mins searching through the misc bolt box at my mechanics shop and found 2 that would work perfectly.

not great pics since i was using my cell phone but better than nothing

My god that's amazing.. I will be joining you next year.

But of course different colors. Keep it up bro.

And I definitely want to know how great of a difference in handling you feel man considering I am planning on doing all of these upgrades either the first half of next year or mid-summer. However long it takes me to stack up the money to purchase all the parts, shouldn't take me but a couple months to get them all, but you know how life nicks you in the *** when you don't want it to!

Joining you in all those upgrades! Strut bar, undercarriage bar, FIGS Mega Arms, TDR Sways, FIGS outer tie rods, FIGS Front Sway End Links, and of course his UCA's when he gets done with them. My suspension is gonna go through a MAJOR overhaul next year.

So to OP, why keep dropping money into your GS when you can save it towards the LS ? I know it's your money and you can do as you please, but I'm just curious. Would you sell your car as is ? Or are you gonna do a part out ?

because i can...nah its really cause up until finding this LS http://www.clublexus.com/forums/lexu...-warranty.html
i havent really been motivated to really sell it and i already had the parts so why not install them. i WILL not do a partout IF/when i sell the car or i dont intend to atleast. BUT as of today im working out some plans and i may end up keeping the car if i cant aquire what im working out

I missed my chance to see Brian's car in person when he came to ATL for a concert. Tony called me last min to see if I wanted to meet up with him and Brian for lunch, but by the time I got free, Brian had to head out. If it wasn't for that, I would have thought Brian really didn't have a GS either, lol

I know, right Thomas? I love the color, and it does look like it could really glow in the dark Brian.

Hey Brian, now you need mirrors to show off the undercarriage. That's the best looking set of under braces I've seen in a long time bro!!
