    Harjeet, you can get them from princess auto and from Canadian tire. Also, I think Cosco used to have them, online order only, but you pick them up at the store. The Cosco ones have a mini jack function, which is pretty sweet.

    Josh, you need to play safe! I cant believe this has happened three times already and your still here to tell the story!

    Holy baller status batman! I like how this going, except for the broken control arms, kinda seems like a bad design from factory, with the amount of force that they're subject to, especially with the stiffer suspension. Hopefully the Kazama units are a bit stronger.

    The factory castor link attachment location really leaves a lot hanging out there. Time to get some fabbed out of chromo or something else that will bend and not snap!

    So arms didn't come in time. Lucky for me my buddy's JZX is parked for the winter so I stole his





    Had lots of fun, went through lots of fuel and no issues.
    Arms came in



    They look pretty beef. Posted the car up for sale, if it sells, it sells. If not, I'll be dumping more money into it in the spring. Hopefully paint the fenders and kit and possibly the car.

    So I guess this is due for an update.
    I ended up finding a stock turbo on kijiji and sent it to cherry turbos to upgrade it to a steel wheel.



    Also picked up a tomei turbo elbow



    Picked up some ssr Vienna courages



    Ended up finally repairing, and painting the BN sports kit







    Also installed a tomei 2 way that I found on yahoo japan. Found a sweet dream on new ikeya rear arms.



    Got super lucky and found a mint drivers green fender on yahoo for 4,000 yen. So I ditched the orange fenders.

    Did a few drifts









    Ended up trading my BC ER series coilovers for some stance coilovers because I wanted to go lower

    Nice update Josh. I'm glad to see you still have the car.

    How are you liking the Kazama LCA's? I see they're +25mm which is a nice length for extra negative camber, btw degree are you at? Are you on aftermarket UCA's? I bought some JZX100/110 UCA's off a guy in Toronto a couple months back, tried to get balljoints but couldn't find any around for the IS300. I'll have to pick up some from Figs, along with other **** I need. I was talking to a buddy about front camber and steering lock on these cars, he's saying we should be extending the LCA not shortening the UCA for more negative camber. I'll see you're of the same mindset.

    Keep up the good work on this car man, I hope to see it out at the track this year.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Thanks man! I’m trying to sell it right now to be honest I have a land Cruiser that I’m piecing together and it’s taking up all my time and money at the moment. If it doesn’t sell I’ll just keep it though.
    Control arms have been good no complaints! I’m only running -3.5 camber in the front. I’d like to change that to -4.5-5.0.
    I’m running Cusco upper control arms and they’re currently maxed on negative. I shortened my upright spindles because they hit the body when you go low. My mistake was I didn’t weld them perfectly straight so I’ll have to do it again.
    For upper ball joints, IS300 ones work! You might have to buy the complete upper control arm though if they don’t sell just the ball joint.

    Ya I have shortened spindles too, but Mitchy welded them perfectly (-25mm). I can't even tell they've been welded, which I wanted. Nobody sells the ball joints separately so I do have to buy them direct from Figs. I already have the stock ones on the car and the JZX100's, so I might have to get two sets of ball joints and Figs bushings to see what I like for negative camber and tire clearance.

    That Landcruiser in the pics is pretty sick, I love the old ones like that! Early 80's I assume...what's the plans for it? My wife and I are driving a 06' 4runner LTD which is a pretty nice truck. I've done front 5th gen brakes/poly swaybar bushings/265.65.18 AT tires, haven't really been offroad tho lol.

    Thanks! It’s an 85! I bought it from New Brunswick and regretted it lol body is really rough, I bought another one locally that’s from Florida. So it’s really clean. I’m in the middle of swapping the drivetrain over. Plans are to finish it, enjoy it for a bit and possibly sell it to help fund some other stuff.
    Haha that’s super cool! I’d want to off road this thing a few times once I’m done.
