    Oil change hacks?

    i need these valves... just changed oil in both my 470 and 460 this weekend. 470 was pretty smooth, but for some reason i got oil everywhere when draining the 460. needless to say, the family had a good laugh.

    hey hey! what's your thought on tranny oil cost? the link i sent was for amsoil signature series... that's $60 per gallon. the valvoline equivalent is about half the cost.... any suggestions?

    Lexus GX470 CV Axles

    Yes OEM is always option #1... That's said, I replaced mine with Cardone 665235HD from Rock Auto. My friend did the same... So far so good.

    Opinions needed- GX470 as family carrying daily driver, too old?

    welcome nick! honestly, i think ebbs15 covered the bases well... but i'll give my perspective below. just for reference, my wife drives a 2015 GX460 (which we've owned since day 1, and have only put about 25K miles on), and i purchased a 2006 GX470 with 154k miles on it back in nov '18. my...

    2011 Stock Suspension Options

    Hey all... So I have two GX's in my household, and my brother in-law just picked up a used 2011 GX basic with 160k miles on it. His Suspension is expectedly tired and fatigued... At this point, he's not looking for a lift, so he's thinking of just refreshing the shocks. The options are OEM or...

    Looks like I will be selling the 470.

    there's no way the 460 forum will be as good as us! they're all elitists (j/k!) sorry, i dont have a clue what to recommend for pricing... maybe just keep it? so basically, my wife drives a 460 and i drive a 470... my son will be driving in about 5 years, so my intention is to inherit my...

    non-nav GX needs radio upgrade

    i'm assuming this would work for you... but i did a full nav to non-nav conversion and then installed an android auto headunit from china. coupled with a carplay dongle, i'm pretty happy with it. a little glitchy at times, but miles better than the old stock unit.

    Full-Lock Grinding/Rumble... any ideas?

    it's crazy... i told him to just take a closer look to see if he can visually see much leaking, and if not just keep an eye on it.

    Full-Lock Grinding/Rumble... any ideas?

    thanks for the input guys! so, the GX went in for inspection today... they didn't find anything wrong with the CV axles, but they also didn't have a diagnosis for the grinding. what they DID note is that the timing cover is leaking and it will take $2500 to fix it. now, i don't doubt that it...
