Sorry guys, I thought I had post an update already... but somehow it did not showed...

Anyway, it has been over a week since they replaced the bushings on my sway bars... Thous far it is still quiet just like the OEM ones, but again the weather has been in the 70s...

Like they have stated in the e-mail they have sent me it is a "pre-release" bushings, therefore no official TSIB number b/c it is being written up at this time.

So maybe the part number showed on my invoice (430211) is a reference numbers only for Sewell, they have promised to e-mail me once the official TSIB is released... So I can notify you all...

The only reason I started this new thread, mainly b/c 1) I was too freaking excited; 2) I wanted you to know Lexus has not forgotten about us; and 3) wanted be sure you get your replacement before they become backorder!!!


My bad, sorry to release the info prematurely!!!

No problem. I really appreciate the fact that you shared the info with us. Even if its another few months before we get any news at least you let us know that its in the mail and that Lexus hasn't forgotten us. Thanks again buddy!!

^ ok, slight off topic....hey I8ABMR, that gif picture you posted is very familiar. if memory serves me right, jackie chan did an action movie involving a mitsu evo back in the 80s or 90s forget the name of the movie). the stunt driver that did that move in your pic is firmly ingrained in my psyche (and one of the things that got me into modding cars) lol! ah, memories of the good old days!

Geez what a drag....my IS250's F-Sport sway bars creak and squeal so much, I can't stand it. It's a little better now that it's warm...but in the mornings going down the driveway honestly sounds like a little rat is under my car making noise.

We're talking about the front F-Sport GS Sway bars, not the IS (size of sway bars are different). We're only aware of a GS fix that may be comming soon.

If you have squealing, I suggest you report it to you dealer, and see what they can do for you.
