Best Shocks, Struts


pierce1

Recommended Posts

My shocks are shot, I am planning on replacing them, also the strut cushioning. I would like to have the same smooth ride of the originial factory shocks. Can anyone recommend what brand/type I should use. Also if I should replace any other suspension parts. My 92 ls 400 has just turned to 99,000 miles.

92Lex gave good advice. You want a "factory" like ride- stick with factory struts. The struts for my 90 LS (standard suspension) were $52.00 each for the rear and $49.00 each for the front from the Lexus dealer for my car. I never had the fronts changed, but the rears were done. Had a much smoother ride after installations.

Good luck.

Your shocks lasted 14 years, so stick with a winner like these other owners and use OEM. I save $40 on labor over dealer rate and use OEM parts by taking my 92 LS to Big O Tires here in Northern California. Hope this helps.
