Went to test drive a IS350 yesterday with a friend who is looking to buy one...I WANT ONE now. Such a big difference in power.
Didnt do too much to the car this weekend. I contacted a machine shop and tried doing the axle spacer fix for the axle to push them out more. Relatively simple install,. For my first time, it didnt take long at all. Wobble went away at the current height and the vibration was very slight. dropped the car another half inch to 24.5 and the vibration at a stop sign was still there, no wobble from when I test drove it after. Can any other AWD owners chime in? Anyone know typical cost to get the boots replaced just in case mine rip?
Other than that, I have some tailight overlay on the way and still waiting on tires and TPMS to be delivered so I can throw the wheels on. From there I will adjust the coilovers accordingly.Still need to get an alignment, hoping to do that as well as program my TPMS at the same time. Im also thinking about a front lip. Not sure which one as there are a few I am leaning towards. Ill most likely wait until the wheels are on before I purchase one.
Quick crappy cell phone pic after test drive at 24.5 inches. Rears are still at 25 inches, (I have the center cap, just took it off while I was breaking my axle nut loose. FYI Makes it much easier when car is on ground to break those loose.)
Let me know what you guys think. Suggestions are welcomed.
