Fucking French Canadians.

*spits*
Benny
yup. pretty much my stance.

also limo tint for the rear windows and 20% for the front coming in may.

Dude, it's a land barge and was engineered as such. Why fuck around with the suspension ?
moe
^ I was gonna say the same thing.

Maybe the old stuff was wasted? I dig the wooden steering wheel. I really want one of those. tongue.gif
Benny
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.
clarkma5
can't argue with that

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
Bjorn
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.

Kip_666
ha, those plates crack me up.

And that sound... last thing I was expecting. It looks quite good otherwise, how many miles has it run?
Synesthesia
Wow that sounds intense! Your car has to be seriously fast to sound like that otherwise it's pretty lame...
Benny
it has 233thousand KM's

and technically i ordered the struts and springs today canadian.gif but their coming dance.gif
and a k&n replacement at somepoint, its on back order on summit.
dukenukem

Benny

dukenukem

Benny

Dreams do come true Benny happy2.gif
Benny
hoooray!

but yeah if you care the suspension should be installed in about a week, and then ill get it washed up and take some pictures while I'm at the car wash, because I'm sure it will get filthy once i get it home, me and the girlfriend live on a dirt road from HELL.
Benny

Wait, they spent 1000$+ on you?


.....are you fucking the mom, too?
Benny
It's not my car, its the gfs but I use it from time to time and have full say in the work that gets done becuase they dont know much about cars. and her mom spent the money and i didn't have to sell my body. The driving feel of the Car has been completely changed. The turn is is so fast now, it has an almost german feel to it now where as it felt a bit buick-y before but on the dirt road the ride isnt to harsh. but the tires and rim size are holding it back from an even more responsive feel. as for pictures i will get them up tomorrow sometime when its clean.

"why didnt you just get coilovers, yo? they are mad tight ballin"

So, that leads to the second question..... WOULD you fuck the mom?
Benny

Thats how much quality struts cost for a 05+ sti sad.gif
I can get very good coilovers for $1500 X.gif

So when are you slapping some turbos on that beotch?
Benny
nevar. i foresee perhaps a custom cat-back exhaust and 18" wheels in the future.
Benny
Well the weather sucks, so i didn't take it out of the garage or wash it or put any effort into these photos whatsoever.

clarkma5
Benny, resize your pics...criminy.

Did it for you. In the future do it yourself, pictures that big are unacceptable.
Benny
