    Also if you go super low, you run into issues with the fucas hitting strut tower, the serialnine rcas make it ride awesome at my height but make the uca problem worse.

    They have uca kits to get rid of that issue aswell

    19x9.5 +15 and 19x10.5 +15 required extensive pulling and rolling of front fenders and removing all the lip in the back and rolling some more too. that was with 225/35 and 245/35 rubber.

    If I did it again I would go with a more positive offset, significantly more. was a PITA to driver and I crunched the fenders and cut the tires a few times anyways

    from upgarage. total to my door was $1300 but half of that was shipping. Although they got to me in 2 days. I used zenmarket but will be looking for cheaper shipper next time.

    So I lowered the rear 0.5" and the front 1". Rear needs to go down another .5 but the drivers side coil is stuck in the sleeve. Can I use propane torch to heat and expand outer sleeve or will that damage strut internals?

    But the real problem.. it's now undriveable.. The front bounces and bangs even at 5kmh. Feels like i have no suspension in the front. I suspect tops of UCA/balljoint is hitting the inner wheel well. I've seen other ls400 people cut out the top of well to allow the balljoint to enter the engine bay.

    Almost high centered getting into garage. Turning radius is super bad. Front rubbing everywhere. Need fender roller!!



    Rear is flush, front needs a 5mm spacer.


    Almost high centered... unspeakable noises

    Do you have budget for some serial9 arms? That's how I'm going to fit big wheels and be low... You could probably get away with just front upper arms with those wheels.

    https://serialnine.com/products/ucf1...er-control-arm

    $530 USD for a pair.

    Lexus wants over $600 for one UCA with the one time use balljoint, and the parts stores aren't that cheap either.

    Why not just keep it high enough to drive comfortably?

    I'm going to investigate and see what the cause of the banging is. If it is the UCA hitting the top then I'll try this as a low cost approach.

    This but neater

    If the top isn't hitting and it's just the suspension geometry out of whack then I might have to raise it .5mm in the front or something.

    Serial9 stuff is nice but it's hard justifying a $600 part on a $1300 car. I can get new moog UCA's from rockauto at $160 each. Overall though I want the car to drive comfy. Not looking to drift this, just want a nice looking smooth cruising reliable summer daily.

    I am with Clay on this one, if you don't want to spend the money on the proper parts because it was a $1300 car. Then why don't you do the most cost effective solution and raise it? At least then you can drive it lol

    Yeah, I'll see how it goes, have an alignment scheduled for next week. might end up just raising it.

    and another another note, I want to make one of these
