You need to look in the phone book for a metal fabrication shop. Give them the specs and they will make the spacers for you. A lot of shops have a minimum rate 50-75 bucks is what they would probably charge

Once you have them made pop off the front axles and install them, can all be done in one day.

But I read you have to make sure the spacers are properly centered and maybe even glued. to the axle.

not glued but they do need to be temporarily held centered on the axle prior to reinstalling the axle through the hub. once the axle is reinstalled, the pressure keeps it centered.

air has seemed to be the way to go for most as all the people ive heard about on air had no issues.

reliability imo is not an issue. i was on bags before (not in my lexus, different car) and i used to daily drive it for years about 80 miles round trip with no problems. just have to make sure you do the proper maintenance on the system every once and a while

I drove it for years like that with no issues, but it did bother me ALOT.....tried absolutely everything including changing out axles, balancing driveshaft, axles spacers, multiple alignments, hubs and even transmission and engine mounts.

When i finally decided to trade in the vehicle and returned in stock.......the ride was heavenly....it had been so long that i forgot what the Lexus was supposed to feel like......

I've changed back to stock suspension twice now. I totally know what you mean.

Glad u mentioned all that. Pretty much answered all my curious questions I had. I'm just gonna ride low till I trade it in.

No wheel gap is more than enough wobble and vibration. I saw his car featured on vossen. I would say we have the same ride height.
