OK, could you get some pictures of them already installed in an IS300?
This would be very useful.

Sorry, I checked too late.
Looks good.

Which difference of wheel angle is possible with this in opposite to the OEM angle?

Could you offer also for rear end something like control arm and stuff?

Thanks Supraghost he was really loving it. It took a wheel to wheel impact with a slight bend and kept on ticking. We had 0 issues from media day to top 16.

Still interested here....

How much does it increase the steering angle? This would be an important issue for me.

We are measuring up to 70 degrees on leading wheel angle (gripping wheel) But there are many considerations like wheel, tire and static toe settings that all factor into this.
Here is FD pro Driver Mats Baribeau at Road Atlanta. The JZX90 chassis is using the same kit as the IS300 except a different upper.


And one from Long beach



Here is a customer car with its maiden outing. Still being dialed in on alignment etc.

Is the caster angle the same as stock?

No, depending on fitment we can move both upper and lower arms for varying caster. We ideally sit around 5.5 degrees for a nice contact patch at full lock. This is a completely new geometry over stock.
