Re: Knocking/Creaking noise at front

Looking at the video you posted, i'd honestly suggest fitting new bushes.

TRD do replacement bushes and you only have to press them in. Saves on buying a new arm!

Re: is200 and altezza visual difference

Pretty much identical.

The interior on the Altezza is cloth, but so is a standard spec IS200. Most are that modified not they have different parts from different cars so it can be hard to tell!

5W30 is a thinner oil than 5w40. I was meant to write 5w30 as that is what is recommended! :oops:

More than likely, but it will depend on what offset and tyres you'll be using.

Re: Don's Altezza RS200

I got a bit fed up with how stiff the HSD's were on a daily drive. So i sold them on and purchased some TRD shocks and springs. http://i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff484/donatos118/My%20Cars/Toyota%20Altezza%20RS200/943DBDF0-16B8-4DB3-B689-E36BFE5F767F_zpsfaslld6b.jpg http://i1238.photobucket.com/al...
