Replacing Rear Springs

Recommended Posts

Has anyone removed the rear springs on a 99 or 00 RX300? I'm looking to change my springs all the way around and was wondering how complex the rear removal and installation process was.

Thanks -

Robin

i had a couple friends with tools do my springs (front and back)...they finished it in about 1.5hrs, i think...wasn't too difficult with all the air tools and heavy duty jacks...i did need an alignment done after, tho...not sure if that helps...

Any particular reason that you're replacing springs so soon? I was under impression that springs should last for many, many years. Did anyone diagnose your springs as "bad," or do you feel that your level of ride smoothness has decreased?

Well, the car was in an accident and the repair shop did a shoddy job of fixing the car. Needless to say, I *think* the front right spring needs to be replaced, but of course, that will require changing at least both sides. Also, Lexus wants 150.00 apiece for the springs, so I figured for 200 bucks on Ebay, I could replace all 4, lower the ride height just a tad, and get some improvement in the lean/roll...

they are Eibach ProSprings...

The car has a 105K on it, and it does in fact, lean forward quite a bit when braking... my confidence in it not rolling some day is not so high with that much lean just with moderate braking...
