  1. are you going to do it yourself?? if so be careful of the little clips.... fragile ! the door PDF shows you all that is in the door on the first page... all other pages show ALL you can do while your there.. PLUS HOW TO GET INTO THE DOOR. Door.pdf
  2. I am/was a professional (now 83) but it is not hard, just pay attention to what you take off and the order of pieces replace all that moves while your there. ALSO TO DERRICK... TAKE IT BACK DOWN and locate the problem... dont mess things up..
  3. sounds good, I replaced my front lower CA's with some cheap ones off ebay, they are working good.. FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARM FOR 1995-2000 LEXUS LS400 SUSPENSION PAIR FAST SHIPPING
  4. have you finished your front end yet? I love mine now
  5. Micah, I had already replaced my lower ball joints a few months ago, my next project will be sway bar end links, and sway bar bushings. just to complete it..
  6. and that is a good guess, run down and get one
  7. first thing to do is CLEAN and tighten your battery cables make sure you have good contacts, go to Autozone (or such) and have your battery & altinetor tested.. get back on here and tell us the results.... and we will try to help you without GUESSING.
  8. Sorry I cant help you, but welcome to the club, I am a keep it like Lexus built it, and just enjoy the best car ever built but this club it eat up with guys who are right down your line, and I think they look cool..... to look at, not to ride in.
  9. change of plans, these feel so good, I just sent the bushings back to Amazon for credit.... I kept my original oem arms and they "look" ok
  10. North Carolina must be ahead of the rest of us...
  11. Hi BillyDPowell,

    Do you still have the link to the service manual for replacing headlight assembly. I am putting in new assembly for 1999 ls400 and am stuck about how to remove motor and then how to put everything in new headlight. Thanks for any help

  12. thanks Craig, I gave them direction, but they sounded like they wanted coverage for every possible thing that could go wrong, so I gave up..
  13. HAY BODE... just to set you straight NO the solenoid is NOT right on top of the starter... it is right UNDERNEATH.. didnt you look at my photos??? both of ours are 99 ls400's plus when you try to take those two bolts out behind the block..... well I dont want to scare you... AND But, it could also be dead spots on the coil or bad contacts, brushes, I think they still call them that. NEVER saw that failure... on a LS400 I am out of here, make your choice and good luck
  14. OK, had the arms installed last friday and got it aligned today, and it handles/rides like new with NO sounds, popping, cluncks ... just silence..love it.. on thursday I will have the new bushings pressed into my original arms, and if these china arms give me any trouble I will put the OEM's back on..
  15. that was 2010, times/prices have changed, have you noticed??
