New caster arms, struts, tires, alignment, and got another key made (cost $56 all together for a new key). After all the suspension work, the car really does drive like brand new. I got a new is250 loaner while the car was at the dealer for the alignment and tires, and I can honestly say I think I prefer driving my GS more after having everything in the front suspension changed.

The caster arms and struts I had done by a friend for $80. The front struts cost about $120 together, the caster arms about $105 a piece. The dealer aligned the car for $80, and mounted two tires for $50. When I did ask them how much it would be to do the struts and caster arms there, I was quoted around $1500.

I replaced my evap hose clamps. Some were missing and some did not have the correct tension.

Also fixed my rattle. After weeks and weeks of trying to find my rattle that was intermittent, it ended up being a nut that was caught in near the rubber exhaust hangers, it was vibrating and rattling at idle.

What did I do to my GS?

New left front fender to fix the rust from a bad body job before I got my GS.... someone damaged the front fender and did a fair fix but neglected to undercoat where the welds were.... So it rusted from the underside through.... GRRRRRR
