Also just in case some of you don't know BavAuto has some of their own springs that will lower the car about 1 1/2in. and they don't ride rough either. I got some last summer and they feel great and plus my car look a hell of lot better lower just slightly!

Hey just wanted to say that I had a "blast" taking of my oil pan and having it welded this saturday, and thanx for all the advice that made this process easier. For future advice to anone having to take it off.....make sure you have a "star" socket set. Aside from the mm sockets. Just an fyi! Also, if anyone does decide to "slice" their springs for a slamm, 3 is a drastic dropp, if you have the stock 14' rims & tires, with 15's or 16's (which I now have) I don't scrape anymore at all, and get over speed bumps without a problem, just another fyi!
Peace and chicken grease....what's up with lexus clownin' on our "ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINES"?!
