Selling my 97 LX450 - Not Locked
I'm the second owner. Bought it about 7 years ago in Texas with 115k miles. Carfax was clean and showed one prior owner and had been in Texas it's whole life. Partial service history through Carfax and Lexus showed regular maintenance...
I did a lot of reading on here about towing and never found a really good thread about what these rigs can comfortably tow.
I read posts that said to never tow with one because it can't get out of it's own way, to people who towed 10k ++ lbs.
I'm sharing my experiences to help anyone searching...
In-Laws where here for the Holidays and used my LX.
No issues reported. When I take the truck for a drive after they left there is a horrible grinding noise when applying the brakes.
Take the wheels off and found the friction material had separated from the backing on the RF inner pad...
It's been more than a year since I bought new tires, never had this issue with mount & balance before.
Bought new tires online and had them shipped to my house.
Took tires and wheels to local tire store where I was told it is $60 for a mount & balance for used tires, $120 for new tires.
My Y-pipe is pretty deteriorated and I seem to be getting a lot more heat of the cats this summer.
Good time to replace the Y-pipe, cats, and maybe full exhaust.
Recent exhaust threads showed the Magnaflow downpipe looking much better than the Bosal.
The issue is the Magnaflow is about $80...
Holding on to it - Thanks for the interest.
Selling my 97 LX450.

Need to replace my radiator and am going to take advantage of
the clearance and do some other maintenance items at the same
time. Truck is a daily driver with 150k miles. Cooling parts are all original except phh.
Here's what I'm planning, anything I'm missing?
Radiator - Koyo
I've had the OME 861/862 springs with Bilstein 4600 shocks on my truck since 2/11, about 15k miles.
Over the last month the ride has degraded, becoming very "bouncy." The truck will continue to rock and bounce after hitting a bump. Feels like the shocks aren't controlling the ride any more...
I know a lot of people on here are running these, so I figured I'd check to see if the price I found is reasonable.
Best price I've found is Discount Tire Direct $993 shipped.
I'll apply the Tread Lightly $100 rebate to that.
The local shops want $1300-$1400 mounted and balanced. :eek:
The visors in my truck are still tight, but, the left visor outer bracket, the piece closest to the door with 2 screws holding it in is broken.
Hoping someone has this piece off their old sagging visor.
Recently purchased a 97 LX450, no lockers, 118 k miles. Found it at a dealer in Houston. One owner, good service history through Lexus, clean Carfax, etc. Had a family member check it out. He found a few things wrong that the dealer fixed. Deal was done, family brought it up to Montana for...
First off, I'm a < :banana: guy on electrical issues.
My new to me 97 LX450 has an electrical problem. The dome lights, vanity lights, door lights, glove box light, clock and remote unlock are not working. The 10A "DOME" fuse is blown. Replaced the fuse and it...

Just purchased an '88 FJ62.
Truck is all stock with 242k miles, I'm the 3rd owner. Seems to be in good shape. Runs well and is straight with some slight surface rust in a couple spots. Came with a stack of maintenance records. :)
I am a little concerned about the auto trans at this mileage...
