No. They will not fit in the front at all. They are not light by any stretch of the imagination.

I can see where someone might get the impression the roof is aluminum, but if you look at this diagram, it's pretty clear only the hood is aluminum. Same as the MkIV Supra.

Yes, corporate. It is inexcusable to say "we can't find the problem," refill the fluid, then tell you after the warranty is up, they found the problem.

Call Lexus. Tell them you noted the problem before your warranty expired and the dealership failed to properly diagnose the problem. They owe you the fix at no cost to you.

100% of front inside edge wear on the 2IS is a combination of LCA bushings and toe. Replacing the factory squishy rear bushing with polyurethane and setting toe to zero cures these ills remarkably...

Check the fluid level in the gearbox. If it is low (common issue) the transmission will flare and will not shift properly.

Is your car lowered? If it isn't, your problem is incorrect toe, not bad camber. Camber needs to exceed 2.5 degrees to influence tire wear. Few cars, except the very slammed ones, exceed this...

I would buy one in a heartbeat. There's no way you "fit" in an IS-F at 6'5" with a helmet on in a proper driving position. I am sure you compromising somewhere to fit - or you have a 40" inseam. I...
