Default My New Project - 1991 Lexus LS 400 Pictures

Bored and car-less sense the car is still in the shop. I am replacing my cam gears, cam seals, timing belt, water pump, spark plugs, fuel pump relay, fuel filter, intake filter, oil change and more to come. Hopefully I will have the car this Saturday but it's looking like the car will be in another week.

I am about to purchase lowering springs and 20s next month. The 22s aren't worth it.

I wasn't too sure where to post this thread.

x2, save money where you can. Everything else seems like maintenance, but the gears are pretty good. Good luck with the project.

Thank the Lord you're getting rid of those wheels. That poor car.
Do some researching in this forum before you buy springs. You just might end up with coilovers.

You need a drop... Right now it looks like you could change your oil without jacking the car up!

LOL... I just may or atleast see how close 20inch rims will fill the wheel well. I just don't want to end up with a big gap.

I meant the pulley part. One of the teeth had cracked. I bought the car as is and was in terrible condition but I am waiting on Lexus to order the part. I am hoping the car will be out the shop by next week.
