Interchangeable Parts

Recommended Posts

I have a 91 LS400 and was wondering if anyone knew what parts might be interchangeable between that and later models.

Right now, I have read that the rear seat middle arm rest is interchangeable with a version that was released in Europe. Also, that some wheels will work as well -- that is all I know from reading this and other sites.

thanks in advance for your input

I thought, and this is the result. :rolleyes:

not to sound dumb chips, but what exactly is a Lexus fitter? and also what is MK1 and MK2?

I saw you are in the UK so it's probably just a dialect difference, but it is an interesting topic.

Yes it is, or I sure think so.

It will certainly benefit us who have the first generation models.

As to that UK post? I think a fitter is a mechanic, can't say for sure though. :D

another 'find used part' site:

also: most salvage yards have Hollander Interchange books and should know what is what !!

Ah good old Brandywine shows up for a search near me. BTW, why did you mention this on an interchangeable thread? :blink:

I've also been asking around for interchangeable parts as well. I've been looking for a rear-seat armrest that has the built-in cupholders for my 1990 LS400. Lexus included this feature starting in 1994 or 1995? Anyway, am still pursuing this option if anyone can further help me along. Thanks.

That will be 1995.

Thanks, 93LSOwner. That's exactly what I'm looking for. Now if you or someone can only determine whether the dimensions are compatiple, as well as all the attaching hardware. I guess the available color should also be important.......mine is the run-o-the-mill brown leather. Thanks again.

I don't know the answer to that one, but you are Welcome.

Good news -- to say the least.

I would like to know also, as you can imagine -- nive pic.

I thought it was a fold out type, but that will do as well :D

Im currently looking for a lower control arm on the passenger side of my 96 ls400. It's not an easy car to find. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out if at all what years are interchangeable for parts

Billy answered in your original thread. 95-00 control arms fit your car.
