No cel's and I don't think a single bad injector would cause this much vibration.
No problem. Sending you a PM

When I still had that IM, I just removed the bolts holding that 2-1 splitter from the plenum. I could then lift it up high enough to get to those 2 plugs with a socket and extension. I'd still have the TB attached to it, and even my IC piping. Was able to just make enough room to get a ratchet in there. Not too fun though.

The stock ride was amazing. It's hard to leave it stock though. I would probably get chrome Supra TT wheels and a nice exhaust.

It's possible to get a smooth ride if you lowered it on the right spring/strut combo or coilovers and have good meaty tires. My SC rides pretty rough since it was slammed and needs new bushings.

Mine rubs now since I traded my old wheels for 19 inch wheels with massive tires. Before that it rarely rubbed.

A good set of tires will help a lot. For a while I had my OEM LS430 18 inch wheels on my SC with the factory Michellins and it road pretty smooth despite being slammed. I plan on putting them back on until i get new wheels and top of the line tires.

Installed my new Whiteline front and rear sway bars.

Also had the mid pipe and resonators removed and replaced with 2 1/2" straight pipe from the cats to the muffler flange

Thanks for the compliment, The turbo is a crappy T70 from CXracing, so is the intercooler, but the intercooler is not crappy, I was happy with the quality of the intercooler.

So after finding out that my OEM 16" wheels aren't compatible with the LS400 brakes, decided I'll just start with some new tires - Goodyear 225/55/16 SL Eagle Sport A/S. @89.95 per tire. Seems like a pretty legit deal on a set of Goodyear with a 50k warranty.

Also getting an alignment (inspection) to see how bad my LCA bushings are. I do feel the "clunk" so I'm not sure if they will be able to do an alignment or not. If not, then I guess I've got some more work before I get tires.

I also get the clunk now, I'm not sure if its the ball joint or the bushings but I'm just going to replace the whole control arm it sounds like..
