  1. i have a 2003 lx and i have noticed lately that the rt rear carpet edge(very back passenger side) is wet after driving in rainy weather. its right along the edge where it touches the plastic trim across the back hatch sill. is anyone else having this problem?
  2. I drove the next generation Landcruiser today. Totally different feel than my 03 LX. Acceleration and stability were much improved. It felt more solid and less floaty than the old one. I was very impressed. Looks great too.
  3. i have a 2003 lx470 with 66k on it and am thinking about changing out the ahc and power steering fluids myself. i want to siphon out the reservoirs in the engine bay and add new fluid. i know this method won't totally replace the old fluid but it should take care of most of it. does anyone see any problems with this less than perfect plan?

  5. I just replaced ft and rear pads myself today on my 03 lx with 62,000k on the orig brakes. The scraper on the rt ft had made contact so that was how I knew it was time. This was the 1st time I've ever attempted a brake job and it wasn't too tough. total cost about $130 for all pads,$20 for 4" channel lock pliers and $3 for brake lube. It took me over 3hrs but won't take as long next time now that I think I know what I'm doing.
  6. The trans fluid dipstick on my 2003 lx470 says "atf fluid does not need to be replaced under normal driving conditions". Is this true?
  7. WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TIMING BELT BREAKS? ON MY 92 SC400 THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE NO VALVE DAMAGE DUE TO THE ENGINE DESIGN. YOU ARE JUST STRANDED. I WAITED TILL THE WATER PUMP LEAKED AT THE WEAP HOLE(INDICATING SEAL FAILURE) AND REPLACED EVERYTHING THEN.THAT WAS ON A 10 YEAR OLD CAR WITH 170K ON IT.
  8. how do you remove water spots from the sunroof glass?
  9. i recently had my 03 lx470 loaded with say 800 pounds in the cargo area on a drive from okla. to north carolina. about 3 times i noticed the ride height was on low while cruising down the interstate at 75mph. flipping the switch did nothing but cause the light to flash till i pulled over ,stopped and repeated the procedure. at this pont it would go to the normal position. after unloading the vehicle when i got home the problem has not resurfaced. has anyone had this problem before?
  10. duplicate please only post once in one appropriate forum
  11. johnny, could you update the picture of your car in your signature photo. it looks like a beauty but the picture looks like it was taken fom a block away.
  12. i replaced mine w silver colored kybs from the tire rack & it feels just like factory struts. the original ones on the front had 160,000 miles on this 92 model sc400. there was a lot of noise coming from the front over speed bumps that went away when i replaced them w the kybs. i guess they were really worn out. i read somewhere that shocks dont last more than 100,000 miles or should be replaced then.
  13. why did you have to change them"lots of times". do silverstars blow out alot. i have thought about getting some but if they are junk i dont want to waste time & money.
  14. the kybs i put on my sc400 were silver & they feel just like the original ones.not too rough & not too soft in my opinion.
  15. check out my 92 w chrome 17" gs 400 wheels( no modification needed)
