I am very aware of that. I am looking to see if anyone has actually tried it and what the pattern is like.

I would prefer photos of the difference.

Never heard a rack and pinion creak. Ball Joints creak.

Don't mess with creaking ball joints, they lead to wrecked fenders when they break.

I love my GS400, never drove a GS300 or GS430. But I wouldn't be as happy with less power, I just like the power of the V8.

Are you looking for a kit or looking for a supercharger you can make work? A friend of mine might have a TVS2300. Might be a bit big for a LS400, but is a fantastic blower.
