Dude your Solara look awesome!! I always thought white was a boring color (no offense) but you made it look amazing. Those wheels are really sexy looking. Is there any nose dive when braking with all your suspension mods?

All high quality parts on that list, and I really like that last photo of your gauges. What camera did you use and what kind of leds did you put in your dash to get an even distribution of light all around? Mine has hotspots and I hate it.

Thank you.

There is a little shake when I enter the corners. Thus, I thinks it's because I didn't cut the rubber shock stopper boot when I installed my springs alone with my shocks. In addition, I believe it's my end links too because they are just old. However, I am due for a suspension upgrade. Maybe Megan Coilovers, but for sure whitelines endlinks, upgrade bushings for my control arms(front and rear), and ultra racing braces(have been looking at them for awhile).

At the moment, I'm working on fitting the supra TT rotors on with my dual pistion caliper setup since no one wanted to buy them. In addition, I'm trying to get my car tune. Those brown supra injectors might be a good buy after all.

By the way, the photos were taken with a Canon Rebel XT silver body. I've had the camera forever, but I just didn't feel like taking photos.

The gauges are equipped with V-led LEDs. They have alright prices, but I like how they only charge 2 dollars for shipping.

I'll try to gather up some more photos of the car when I get a chance.

I got them from a guy that only used them for 5,000 miles. So I don't know if he got custom springs. He did say that he wanted to go VIP style, but it wasn't low enough for him.

Here's the spec from Ksport
Kontrol Pro Coilover System: (CTY030-KP) for a Lexus ES300 97-01
Spring Rates Front = 7.5/420
Spring Rates Rear = 5.1/286

Compared to the old setup of Tein and Tokico. I would say, they all way better. However, I did upgrade a few things while I was at it.
Whiteline front and rear adjustable endlinks
Whiteline Rear Trail Arm Bushings
I'll take a picture of the setup this weekend.

More to come.
