thanks sid. all u.s. versions come equipped with the yamaha chassis/body lateral dampers you're referring to. i'd like to hear some feedback about what the differences you feel are with and without the yamaha body dampers after you get them.

That's very interesting for me to hear because in Italy you can only order those if you order the top version with the top package, so it's a 500 euro option only on the 41,000 euro version (car starts at 29,500 euro here). I thought it should be possible to have them installed afterwards but salesman didn't know. Front one looks easy to install, but I'm curious about the rear.

Me too! You're absolutely right, the front bar is easy to install, but about rear it seems that battery must be dismounted =) so, it's about 100500 bolts there and ~80kg. anyway i'm gona do that.

I actually thought the opposite. The front looks like a tight fit. You probably have to remove the trim where the front wipers sit to access the pre-drilled holes where the lateral dampers attach. The rear on the other hand looks unabstructed. The predrilled holes are clearly visable.

Hmm... could you please post a photo with the rear holes? Because i can't find them, thats why i decided that battery should be dismounted... =\

SID once they arrive please post pics and let us know how the install went. It appears that no Canadian models have the dampers installed, so I am also considering ordering these if/when my CT ever arrives. As someone else said, I'd also be curious what difference you find in the handling of the car before/after installation.

Thanks

ok, my bars has been sent via USPS :)
meanwhile i have made a research of how to install the rear damper and my conclusion that it's mounted outside the car - car should be lifted and there is a plastic cover on 6 screws covering part of the rear suspension...

Hi SID! im excited for you, because my CT also do not have this damper included. im also researching for the installation of these dampers. it would really be allot of help if we could see some photos of where the rear dampers are mounted.

by the way SID, may I ask if you recieve the front & rear damper if its convenient for you. can you weigh both dampers for me please? including the box. because shipping it here in Philippines is very costly. i will really appreciate it if you can give me the exact weight of both items so that i can estimate the cost of the shipment. Thanks so much!

No problems, Wong_bernz, 100% i will post images as soon as recieve them :) (expecting to recieve in 1-2 weeks)

can you weigh both dampers for me please?
Ok, will do that. First time when they was unsuccessfully shipped via FedEx, the tracking info was : 6.8 lbs/3.1 kg
But i'm not sure that this information is true (too light, think it's should be not less than 6kg)...

Thank you! :) About rear a can say that it's not so easy as front. I have plans to install both of them in this weekend, after that i will provide complete report with images ;)

By the way, Wong_bernz, just for information - around 700$ for dampers and +80$ shipping charges.

Thanks, copy SID! Sorry for the late reply, got busy recently. I'm excited to buy the dampers already. I'm thinking of also buying the cruise control, but the Lexus service adviser here in the Philippines doesn't know for sure if my CT is compatible with cruise control w/o PCS. :( can you help me confirm that? thanks again!

I have made installation of the front bar only... Well, it wasn't so easy as i expected. Still can't find mount points of rear bar :( I have to ask my usa lexus supplier for information about that...

Well, now i'm driving only with the front bar and don't feel any "serious" difference. Now i'm not sure that this bars are so necessary :confused:

Don't worry, order it ;) I'm sure you will be satisfied.
