Hey, sorry I haven't been on in a while, been preoccupied with all the holidays and birthdays recently. I haven't even had time to do stuff I've been wanting to do (putting together the struts). You COULD use OEM struts + UAS bags and go that route. HOWEVER, your struts will go kaboom a lot quicker vs just using aftermarket struts . I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, if something has to be done, it has to be done 100% and done the right way, no matter how long it takes

You need to! I'm one or two months away (whenever tax money comes back) to finishing up the install, my factory shocks (currently at 80k+) is starting to feel iffy on me, and my tires have been getting chopped lately instead of cambered, i'm trying to sort this problem out with lexus before i swap out the struts, may be a deeper problem

I'm almost done dude, just gotta get the tank and the rest of the setup going and it's installation time Stay tuned as I haven't really touched the suspension much ever since.

Hmm... Good question, looking back at the database it was $1300 complete with modifications, bags, and valves. All that is left to do is to mate these coilovers with a nice set of compressors tanks etc.. If you like the price, PM me and I can forward you to the guy who took care of EVERYTHING from A-Z for me on the suspension.

unfortunately, no.... i'm a bit sad over it but it's whatever, everytime i start to save up for the additional bagged suspension something either family-wise or something else that breaks down on me comes up. HOPEFULLY, by the end of the year i'll have it finished... It's annoying having the coilovers sit in the box with no play from day 1.
