Arrow 98 Gs 400

Picking this up tomorrow(Wednesday).Loved driving this little rocket during the test drive.Just a little nervous as the car has 158,000 miles on it.comes with all the service records from previous owner.He had alot done to it.Think theres anything to worry about with that kind of mileage?Read a couple of posts on how they last much longer.Car seems to run strong.

My previous 99 gs had 250k on it when i sold it, it was still very strong with
no problems, it would fly smoothly on the freeway
just u might get the "famous rear suspension squeak" every gs gets
around these miles the rear knuckle bushing goes out , nothing major

congrats on your lexus, have fun

is this your first lexus?

Bought my 98 with 229k and it needed a few front suspension bits and a timing belt. I also did the valve cover gaskets to fix the very slight oil drip. Past that its been pretty solid.
