welcome and congrats on the move to the right side :P we have the same colour combo...
those are def lowering springs... and yea the brakes are mushy on our cars... we use the same brakes as the IS300, but are moving much more curb weight... a good upgrade are the LS400 multi piston calipers... look up the sticky...

Welcome to CL, and nice ride.
+1 it's got lowering springs and looks good at this height. Same on the brakes, but they are powerful despite the feel. There's nothing like a V8, I love my GS4.
The knowledge base here is amazing and there's some nice goodies available for these cars - check out Figs Engineering.
dang. i just noticed all you cats chiming in. Thanks for the Welcome mat. I search and study everything i can in this forum. Before i bought the car and moreso after. Had to sell my BMW to make Christmas and Birthdays for my December kids happen. But, I am glad i got them covered and still ended up with a GS in the long run. Rear Wheel Drive and V8's is pretty much all that is in my garage. The brakes do feel mushy but i feel like i got a warped rotor or something. Imma take the wheels off tomorrow and see what the deal is.
I felt like the car was lowered. I would like the front down like 1 more inch without paying a ton to accomplish it. Seems nothing is EVER low enough for me. Not a fan of the "IS" wheels on her either. But spending $1000's on her immediately isnt really in my budget.
