Have any you guys had a problem with the Rack&Pinion?
I went to the car service around my house(Knoxville, TN). They told me mine is leaking and needs to be changed.
I'm having a hard time deciding to change or not because it cost like 1500$
Do any of you have recommendations or any other place I should have service?
Reading the Wiki, and looking at CarComplaints.com and Edmunds, KBB, Cars.com reading extensively on owner experiences with the 09 and earlier LS460 it seems the smarter move is to buy the 2010-2012 iteration. Is that true? The changes seemed more than mere cosmetic with the 2010 refresh - paint changed, electronics [some], lighting, etc.
And are the notorious "control arm" bushings, parts, etc still in play from 2010 ownward? I do not want to be chasing driveability issues ad infinitum....
your wisdom is greatly appreciated!
Gang I'm not sure this is the best forum for such a topic; 2008 or 2009 GX470, as of now what is the recommended path for converting to a hard metal suspension system, all 4 ? This will get mild offroad use on trips to remote areas, but 95% typical town & highway use, with quite a bit of rough 2-lane paved backroads.
If I need to inquire elsewhere, links appreciated!
I have a 1994 Ls400 with an odd suspension squeak. The squeak only happens when braking. Definitely not a brake squeak. The squeak sounds more like a chatter and gets louder depending on how fast I'm braking. But this squeak does not happen when in reverse. I've replaced the UCA on the driver's side because the ball joint boot was torn. Both front struts are brand new, and just today I took the sway bar bushings off and greased them. Sway bar endlinks don't have play, and the rest of the ball joints don't have play. Still the same noise. Any suggestions on what it could be?
I have purchased a 2004 ES330. I have installed 225/50-17's on Lexus 7" wheels and am looking to tighten the ride (cut down the body roll, lean, nose-diving, etc). I am looking at installing BC BR coilovers but am having trouble finding information on options for installing stiffer front and rear stabilizer bars. Does anyone have information on this?
