Default SJGS. Slow LS430 Project Built W/ UAS Install

FINALLY AN UPDATE.




Hey Club Lexus.
Just picked up a 2005 LS430 about 3 weeks ago.
Always wanted this platform now i finally got my hand on one so
Im fairly excited to see how its gonna turn out.
Had some left over UAS stuff from my last built off my GS so decided
to do my Suspension before anything else.

Here is my previous built. Decided to part it out and keep it as a daily.

Got some Ksports from a guy on VIPSTYLECARS
Kinda fabbed it up with the UAS bags.

Noticed the Top Mount didnt fit the UAS bag Cylinder.. So decided to shave the top hats a bit.

What i did was drill Countersunk holes to mount the bags directly onto the Ksport Top Mount.
Im kinda upset cause I forgot to take pictures of the top. But heres a picture of the same thing.

Final Product with everything Ready. Bottom Piece I used was from UAS. It was actually Meant for Belstein Shocks for 98-00 LS400 But it Fits perfectly.

Messed around with the Valves, tank and compressors

Fabbed the wood to mount everything, with DUCT tape of course,
Screwed everything together and layered it with hardwood floors on top.
