Ill check. I did my inner right side tie rod yesterday and it seems quiet now. But I did take off the caliper bracket on that side... Maybe that is it.

Thanks!

Mine does the same, it never did it until I put on the left front caster arm bushing (Daizen). So my guess that is my issues. Same exact description, slow speed into out of parking spots, driveway,...

No, look at Dr Haas charts (If that page has them, the old page did). Most all weight oils are within a small amount of viscosity of each other. Down in the low single digits. But at high temps,...

I wouldn't call the GS old at 60k. 360k maybe. 60k, not a chance.

My GS400 has 237500 miles and is perfectly fine with 0W20. I would keep 0W20.

Old engines were (old meaning GM, Ford,...

What sort of difference? Mainly what Dr. Haas is talking about is the viscosity. Thinner gets into the bearings faster and builds up pressure where it needs faster, thicker oil will take more time...

I would keep the thinnest you can in still. Likely operating temps aren't much different than stateside. If all you can get is 5W40 that should be good. 0W40 would be better. Still probably only...

You're fine. It makes sense. Toyota did the VVTI engines in 2000 but Lexus got them in 98.

More or less any 98-05 GS is the same assuming same engine. The v8 went from 4L to 4.3L but the GS300...
