With all due respect (b/c I know you all have been after this for a while), I wouldn't call this a solution from all the reading I've done (mainly on this forum).

Even if a 40% reduction is achievable, this is still a rather huge let down for me. I love the Lex cuz of the butter-smooth ride and back when I found out I could get my hands on a 300+ hp AWD Lex, I KNEW it would be my next car. Only problem at the time was the ugly wheel gap but I always figured lowering it would take care of that.

As it nears time to make my next purchase, I've been keeping my eye on the market and I hate to even wonder if I should consider something else..

I also want to add that I appreciate everyone who has researched this and shared information in hopes to resolve this problem!

I know. I want a quality solution really bad. I'm still irritated about this whole issue.

i know this is irrelevant to the spacers. but i have a good idea.
since the wobble is caused by axles angle when lowered.
wouldnt RCA lowering block help before lowering with coilover? so the angle of the axle isnt as extreme?

nobody wants to go forth with it. i did everything i could to come up with a solution and these spacers drastically dropped my vibrations and wobbles. with oem wheels i felt none and with my 20s i only felt a little and im pretty sure it was the crappy tires i had on them.

Since this is the only thread.. has anyone installed this on a AWD IS? Just wanted to check that the specs for the rings are the same. Also if you could provide pics of this installed that'd be great to paint a clearer picture of where it goes/how it works. Thanks!

theres a thread in the 2IS forum, not sure if any members have tried it though.

its a pretty simple install. remove the axle nut and slide the axle out from the knuckle. once its out, you slip the ring on the end of the axle (make sure its centered) and slide it back through the knuckle and re-install the nut. before you put the tire back on, look through the center of the knuckle (where the axle end is) and turn the rotor. just double check and make sure its center and not rubbing on the speed sensor. wouldnt hurt to remove the speed sensor when installing the ring considering its only held in by 1 bolt.

if its not centered you'll damage the sensor and be out $200 (per sensor). trust me i messed both sides up when i first did the install lol.
