Thanks for the nice comments. All the 460s I see on this thread are nice too.

I got the LEDs off of Ebay. I looked for the longest I could find since the LS has about 15" of air duct space. These are for Hummers and are the longest I found with 9 LEDs (12"). The Benz's trip out. They don't know what it is when I fly by them. HAHA!

This is the Ebay title:
Audi Style LED Daytime Running Light DRL Daylight Kit Fog Day Lamp Hummer

The seller:
xenon-hid-worlds

Only $40 for the LEDs. Very Cheap for the double takes I get. I cut out the two verticle supports, fed the wires, plugged them together, sqeezed them into position and glued them in. it is a bit tricky because the wire they share is just long enough.

That's what these message boards are all about, share the knowledge!!!!

The question about the lowering.

I have the Prestigious Society Air Suspension Controller and now I have major camber issues up front. Expected so I am on CL to see the best way to resolve as much of it as possible. A lot of good stuff to read here. Please PM me if you have resolved this issue on yours. I have an 'L' model if that makes a difference.

Thanks.......Brian

We have an effort going on right now to get an adjustable camber solution and some vendors are looking to help...your best option is to ride at normal height as much as possible but who does that when they can ride low..esp on air with controller! You can also go to a speed shop that specializes in custom alignments where they play with toe to help offset neg camber. My Tanabe thread talks about some of this also

I dont know why but I am not holding my breath on the camber arms. We tried the same thing on the 3GS forum ( way more modified 3GS) and we still got no love

I thought I heard that there was an effort for the 3GS's and a vendor produced a limited run of kits?

That would be great news. I have had my 4LS for about a year and a half and that must have happened before I traded my 3GS. I think we tried to get some vendors serious but I think they didnt feel like the car was worth making parts for at the time. The bottom line is that the cheaper these cars get then the more likely they are to be modded. There are a lot more modifed 07 LS460s than there would be modified 2011 or 2012

from my experience with my previous vehicle, infiniti fx45 is that they will make a limited run on a part with enough people in on the group buy, as far as they making them readily available after that will have to see how much the interest is. I can honestly say that it is up to the vendor and if they feel confident that they can sell all they make on the limited run in which I believe they will sell. I will buy two if I have to, I can't afford to eat through tires like that, unless I cheap out and get them nakang or other cheaper tires which I will not, right now I have the michelin pilot ps2 mounted just waiting on spring.

If they come out with a kit I will drop my car 100%. There would no reason not to. If tanabe made a short run of them they would sell a decent number of springs and sets of camber arms. They could even bundle them a s a package.

I am all over these camber arms if they can produce them

I'm waiting on my 22s Vossen VVS083, they're on back ordered for the LS460 5x120.
I really need them ASAP, Mike if it possible can you ask them to hurry the process? Thank you

I have a 2008 LS460. I'm thinking of getting the Vossen CV1 wheels, but I don't want to go too big on them like the 22". I live in Toronto and the roads are horrible here. I want to have the quietness and the smooth ride like my current stock 18". I'm looking at the 19". How do they look on stock springs?Ride quality?

I think for someone to tell the difference in ride quality on a smooth surface between an 18 and 19" would be almost an academic exercise . You would probably need sensitive equipment.
