You will be real happy with Tanabe's - they are comfortable like OEM - never heard of anybody complaining they were harsh

Current condition.

Although, I've been thinking about some LS430 17's from 03-05' --- I would love the LS430 18's but you never can find them and they are so expensive.

What a great looking OEM setup - classy. I would hold out for the 18" 430's as they really make a nice difference.

Update: Since my last pictures, I've installed my UAS Air bags
Suspension: JIC FLT-A1 Coilovers with UAS Air bags, and eyeballed alignment
The rears are actually a bit lower now than it was in the pics, the rear lips are literally touching the fender lip now...

Hahah thanks Im glad you know it says Scraper instead of Scrapper. I cant even count how many times people have asked me "Whats Scrapper?" or "Why does your plate say Scrap three R?"

I blame the public school system...

are your fenders pulled a little or just rolled? Also can you provide wheels specs: sizing and offsets. PM me if you dont want to post them on here?

The rear fenders are rolled with a VERY slight pull. I need to pull them out more for sure though... The only reason I cant tuck the rear lip is because its literally sitting on the fender. I need to pull it at least another 1/4 to 1/2in.

Wheel specs are:
19x9.5 +16, S-low disk, 225/35/19
19x10 +10, S-low disk, 235/35/19

I'm not sure if you can run these S-low disk's on anything newer than the 92's because I believe thats when they upgraded brake/caliper size. I had no problems clearing S-low disk wheels in the front though since mine still have the smaller brakes, so that gave me a little bit extra room for a deeper lip

Im sitting on 18" X 8.5 with 245/45/18 tires. Anything bigger is too easy to bend.
