Torqued the suspension again to specifications after the install last week. The ride is exponentially smoother than stock and nose dive is now non-existent. Only issue...265s are looking rather small. Might be time to bump up to 285!

i guess "one of the last" isn't synonymous with "a few" even though you've listed 3 left out of the dozen or so they offer.

That pretty much sums up about 1/4 of the forum, but there's some good stuff too. Also, if you go to the settings page, you can enter user names to ignore. It's helpful.

New Automatic Light Control Sensor For Camry Corola Lexus LS430 89121-50020 | eBay

I carefully pried off the black plug on the front of the dash near the windshield. Thereís a small electrical plug attached. Take it off and plug in the real sensor. I tested it before snapping it into the dash. With headlights on and the dimmer switch *not* clicked in the full bright position, by covering the sensor then shining a flashlight on it, I could demonstrate the light dimming action. Then I seated it fully into the dash.
I received my part today and bought it for $8.29 on Ebay. Works great and love getting back bright dashlighting in the daytime.

So I ordered a light control sensor from eBay for under $13, including shipping. I made sure it was from a US distribution center so it would ship quickly. Itís a Chinese knockoff, but it has the same part number as the Toyota OEM. 89121-50020. If you look on Toyota websites itís listed for around $120. Thatís nuts; itís a simple photo sensor.

Then I seated it fully into the dash.
Works well, I like it.
Should all of our 5th gens have this wire? I pulled my plug I had in there, and there was no wire connected to it. perhaps it had fell down at some point? It looks like I would have to pull the radio or something similar to get that far back. Assuming there is no wire, is this a cheap harness that can be bought and simply plugged in?

Lift and tires

Installed toytec spacer lift and 285/70/17 tires. Was hoping for a more aggressive look but at least its a step in the right direction.

Step up to a 295/70/17 but you will also need new wheels. 285 is not a good idea on stock pro wheels, 295 is not even an option.
