SS Pro kit is great, probably one of the best mods I've done to be honest. You can acheive your desired ride height while rolling, and keep more air in the bags. Handling is better, ride is better, and alignment is spot on. I don't get bad tire wear when driving lower than stock.

I wish mine was a 31 after MC, but I'm pretty happy with this car. I can't complain, picked it up for cheap and was able to afford all the mods I wanted to do.

Thank you! It was a big plunge for me to order these wheels in GLD, originally I was going with IGS. I'm glad it came out looking good.

Thanks! They're the same as the Varianza's. 9.5JJ, 10.5JJ. I wanted stepped lip to minimize the space in the center of the wheel since I'm not running a BBK. Work only does step rim in half sizes, so I would have had to go 10.5, 11.5 for next size up, and they would have rubbed on the bags. LS430's don't have very much room! I was surprised actually, seeing as I had a 12.5J on my first gen JP Celsior.

C8, there are a couple vendors on here that can get them, there also might be a set up for sale in the LS For Sale section (there is, lol)...

I didn't know they only did half sizes on the step lips. I should be ordering a set this month and I'm looking at getting the same sizes. What offsets did you get?

11.5's would have been huge on the LS430. It's interesting that they would rub since I've seen older LS400's/Celsiors like yours run 11"s and 12"s with some fender work.

My new BBK should be in next week...they'll compliment the open face of the HS203's nicely. Anyways I got BRU finish.

The BBK should look sick with the Works, especially with the BRU finish. I'd love to see some pics once it's done.

I would definitely do a BBK, but I don't want to dump money like that into the car until my 2GS is finished. I just bought the Endless BBK for my 2GS. I will probably go with a Brembo / AP / Endless kit for my LS.

No thanks, if I'm going to buy a BBK, I want something that I know is super high quality...forged calipers with stainless pistons and quality rotors/pads.

Not saying there's anything wrong with running Futura....I saw a kit for sale and tried to research it, absolutely no information anywhere on their stuff. I can only assume it's from the same place where Ksport and D2 are made...
