  1. I was, but also about bushes for the 400 in general, it's all good lol Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. I've seen aftermarket arms with bushes in but always hear they wear out quickly (ie 2 years instead of the 20 or so oem ones last) For me I'd be happier buying new bushes and have the arms powder coated or painted and push the new bushes in myself, but haven't seen any oem bushes on their own. Was thinking about polybushes but I know they can make the ride quite a bit stiffer at the cost of not needing to change them again for a long time Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. How much did this cost if you don't mind us asking? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    LS430 coilovers

    The original air suspension is notorious for failing. I'd suggest bc coilovers, they're good enough. If you want air ride they do bag sleeves for bc coilovers (this is what I'm doing next) Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    LS430 coilovers

    They look like cheaper than cheap plastic ones. Why not pay the extra hundred or so quid and get bc ones. Got them on my 400 and wouldn't suggest anything else Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    This is max rear camber on stock setup :) Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Mk4 LS400

    To be fair the rear has been cambered to the max on its stock setup and I had to grind a smidge of the arch back as one side was running and one wasn't. The rear quarter liner that sits along the outside is still screwed in though so you wouldn't know without an expert eye :) the front now does fit under the wings it didn't before but I don't plan on having to do a wire tuck as j don't want to go any lower than this whilst static. I'd rather not disclose what I paid for these ones but I will say the only ones I've seen new are over 500 on eBay without postage! I did buy a second set of lights myself to make my own with but ended up getting these instead so I now have an extra box of shed ornaments [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Mk4 LS400

    Long time since an update but rest assured the car is still alive and Well!! Not a great deal has happened over the past few months, however I have ordered some parts which arrived and some are still on the way. I gained some led rear lights from Japan and a fellow LS400 owner sold me his old wheels. The spacers that came with it were too big originally however I have now got better sized spacers and got the ride height to just about where I'd like it, enjoy the pics :) Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  9. What things does it need, where are you located and pics ? All of these would allow people to help more Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. I have only put this on for this first time in 8 months as was planning on towing another car but didn't need to in the end. I'll be keeping the part it sticks into on the car though, out of all my friends mine's probably the ideal car to be doing the towing so will no doubt need it at some point lol Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  11. Does anyone have an original towbar for the mk4 LS400? Mine came with the car and is written on the original invoice but searching it on the internet just seems to bring up a lot of people asking for one. This how mine is attached to the car, it has a locking mechanism and ball bearings to keep it inplace. Wondering how rare this is? Thanks in advance Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. Don't forget there's more to braking than just discs and pads. Don't forget to take into account tyres, road conditions and brake fluid/cylinders. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. From the site I got them from Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  14. They came with a preset weight which I think is 12kgf on the fronts and 8kgf on the back. Would have to check and get back to you on that Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. I don't think there are any lowering springs available, I've not seen any when I've looked. Don't bother importing from the states for a sub brand. I have bc's on mine with 30 way adjustable damping, have got it set on 10 from the softest also on 18s and the ride is very comfortable. They are a bit more pricey but with coilovers you always hear buy cheap buy twice ! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
