rear struts are leaky and the H&R sport suspension is only a 1" over all drop, and will reduce some of the body roll, not looking to slam it or autocross it, the Gfresh and i just don't like the way it rolls.
this is what it looks like with the tokicos and h&r springs.

Personally I think the idea of an older LS400 sleeper is pretty cool. Kinda like an original LS-F, M5ish, AMG S55 kinda thing.

(IF you buy an "F" badge from Lexus and put it on this you will be my hero)

i don't know if you could really call it a sleeper, like yeah its pretty quick for a brick, but not deserving of an F badge.
it does scream for full exhaust though...they sound bad as fuck with straight pipes. rolleyes.gif

The "f" badge comment was more of a joke, but I still think it would be kinda cool. Although very close in spirit to the dorks who put M badges on 318s and AMG badges on C230s.

As for the exhaust, if it ehances the V8 sound great, if it makes the sound tinny and harsh, leave it alone.
