I have got over 400K km on my 98 GS4 and I haven't done much more than ball joints and control arms. I did this about 150Kkm ago using all OEM Lexus parts and the car still drives nice and smooth. ...

I think the speedometer will be reading too low. When your speedometer is showing 60mph you will actually be going about 64mph.

I currently own a 98 GS400 with Nak and a 2012 ISF with ML.

So how do you know if you are getting the old version or the new version. Could it be that they are lower priced right now because retailers are getting rid of old stock of the previous version?

I put 285/30/19 on RCF wheels and they would rub if I hit a bump on the road. I have stock 2012 suspension.

RCF wheels are 10" wide and have 41 offset. ISF wheels are 9.5" and 50 offset.

I have been running TRD's for years and never really noticed any harshness. In fact I think the ride became better because of the sways.
