    xspeed, I was looking through some threads about stiff suspension and noted that you have commented on this thread. I also noted that you have a picture of your car in your signature. I like the way the car is lowered evenly.
    Can you tell me what lower kit, along with struts you used to get a even stance?
    Also, do the current struts you have give you a nice smooth ride? My SE is really stiff, nearly uncomfortably stiff.

    In 2012 you kindly posted a detailed DIY about how to replace instrument cluster lights in 1st Gen Avalon. I kept the link but now the links to the photos are dead. Any chance you can share those again? A zillion thanks (for the post, if not the pix) pj

    I've been following your posts on led conversion. I have a 97 camry which I was planning on converting to LEDs. I was wondering if you could tell me how you set it up? And I've read multiple posts about how these burn out. Have you experienced this with your setup?

    It's pretty hard not to have dead spots. You will have them here and there but I used the 15 LED type so that I can get the brightest light to overcome the dead spots. Brighter you go, the less

    Well, I'm sure the TRD 18"s are 18x7. The offsets are probably between +34-42. So I can't really say because I don't know the offsets. The tokicos doesn't really matter as they're just shocks. They don't lower the car in any way. That's what the springs are for. Since you're getting H-Techs, you won't have much problems with clearance. I have no problem with clearance and I didn't need any spacers. Right now, I'm running on 18x7 rims w/+38 offsets wrapped in 225/40R 18 tires. Hope this helps you out.

    xspeed I am curious if you have any clearance issues with your combination of tokico struts, tein springs and 18" wheels. I have already ordered h-tech springs and tokico struts and would like to run the 2007-11 camry trd 18" wheels but am unsure if the overall 26" diameter and 8" wide tire I have selected to pair with them will clear. The stock 14" setup runs just about 24" in diameter and my h-tech springs don't lower even close to what the s-tech do so in theory it will work but I was hoping you could add some insight from your own experience. Thanks very much for your help.
