Looking good! I would say it needs some air/coil suspension or just H&R springs. Of course it's your car. Besides that it's very clean. I like it.

I I already have Eibach springs, I thought they will lower the car and make it stiffer. Well...Eibach lied to me and only made it stiffer, not lower. I'm not planning to put more ridiculous money into suspension...I'd rather get a new car

H&R springs was what I had. Decent drop and good spring rates. I hear you though.

I love those rims. I saw them last year in this same thread and was curious on how they look on the Rx. If it's not too much trouble, can you post another picture from the side. Thanks in advance.

Hey Dragosdor:
Everything looks great! Are you running the Eibach Pro Kit on stock/OEM struts? If not, what brand are you using?

I have the Pro Kit on my RX400H AWD, with KYB Excel G struts. Vehicle rode fine for a while, but after only 5 months and 3K miles, it has degraded and drives like a box of rocks now. I'm wondering if the pro kit and KYB struts just can't handle the weight of the RX.

Since KYB and Monroe are the only 2 options (other than JDM), I might go for OEM Lexus struts, but those are pretty darn pricey!

I did not replace the oem struts yet. Car only has 50k miles. So far ride is good, just a tad firmer than oem springs.

Thanks for the response. I'm leaning towards shelling out the cash for OEM struts. Mine had 87k miles when I replaced them with KYB.
