Default new owner : couple questions

Whats up everyone, so. I just recently bought a 9 Ls, and this is the first lexus ive owned ( coming from a g35 sedan) had a couple questions.

1. Who makes front uca ( or camber arms) bee able to only find rear arms.

2. My abs light is on, previous owner said the driver side abs speed senor needs to be replaced, how hard is that job?

3. Im going to run my wheels I had on my G ( work vs kf 19x10.5/11.5 +8) any issues as far as that being to aggressive?

9 LS? Didn't know they made these during the age of the model T! Talk about being WAY ahead of their time!

I'm just joking of course, but the only one of those that I can answer off the top of my head, is that the ABS sensors are not terribly difficult to replace. basically just unbolt the old ones, unplug them, and then replace. If I am not mistaken i think there is a way to pull ABS diagnostic codes as well so you can verify that..... At least I THINK you can, Somebody correct me if i am wrong...

I think its supposed to be 1999 LS400.

as for the wheels, I think they will fit with some minor fender rolling. don't quote be on it as I own a UCF10 not a UCF20.

welcome, and i hope you find our forum very informative. don't forget to check out the FAQ for common issues. keep in mind timing belt is due every 90k miles.

to answer your questions:
1. only japan companies make adjustable UCA, such as t-demand. if you want to add camber, it's best to use a camber roll center adjuster (RCA). again japan companies sell them, but there is one CA company that makes them (or i hope still makes them). there are independents out there making a few sets too, but there are very few and far between.
check out my thread for more info: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls40...sters-rca.html

2. an abs sensor is as simple as removing a few 10mm bolts and wiring. it shouldn't be more complicated than that. take off the wheel and take a peek.

3. that is a very aggressive sizing for our LS, unless you plan to do a major pull 20-30mm. keep in mind your LS (95-00) have larger front brake calipers, similar to akebono calipers on the G, so hopefully the VS-KFs have the right disc pad to clear the calipers. if not of course you can just space them out but that adds more clearance problems.

check out the wheel thread forum for sizing, or ask here again for another set of wheels that your are considering:
