Suspension Upgrade...

Recommended Posts

I want to replace my suspension to give my 2003 GS300 a lowered profile. I was thinking of an adjustable Tein Damping kit or maybe other brands that provide adjustable suspension for this car. But I want some feedback from people who have already done this. I want to know:

1) how is the ride after this? Stiff? Bouncy?

2) to what degree is the bounciness? Unbearable? Ricer-like? Still smooth?

3) what kind of suspension upgrades can I do to create a smooth ride? Adjustable damping? airbags?

Also, my 2003 GS300 is approaching the 85,000 mile mark. Do I need to replace my shocks?

ANything from anyone who can give me great advice will be great

I have Tein SS coils, Daizen sways, Tein strut bars, Daizen steering rack bushings, Front RCAs, New tie rods and ball joints, L-Tuned steering ECU, and 19s. And i still ride smooth a stock without the boat feeling. The ride is stiffer, but i prefer it that way.

Check out www.clublexus.com . There is tons of info about suspension.

Well, I'm looking into getting an adjustable kit. I would love some feedback as what are the best ones for the best price for the best ride possible. I'm aware of the proportionality between price and quality in products.

Wow, nice parts. Can I have more info on those ball joints? Price? Brand? Website? Anything?

OEM ball joints and tie rods from Sewell Lexus in TX. They are a sponsor on ClubLexus and offer 10 or 15% discount (can't remember). IIRC the ball joints where $127 shipped to my door, but don't hold me to that price.
