That key part just pulls out, bet it would strip first time trying to use it if you had the key, has no leverage compared to the regular jack tool.
you can get a 200 series tool kit and jack off ebay for $100
Those were there when I bought it, I’ll try to see what they are when I get a chance, they’re really bright.
Tire shop said I needed a upper ball joint so have the related parts for doing all four coming.
Is this Stance?
All new front sway bar end links, bushings and bolts.
Bolts for the large bushing on passenger side were very rusted and a pain to remove all the rest took 10 mins.
Fixed a clunk.
And after doing the front just bought every related bolt for the back.
Pulled the under drivers side dash all...
Cause of the none working oil pressure gauge.
Cut, soldered, covered with heat shrink tubing and covered with a new protective sleeve.
Routed it better so it’s held away from the serpentine belt, and dash all works!!
Headlights or interior?
Plastics all scrubbed in sink to remove spilled soda and god knows what else.
Painted supports with stainless steel spray paint and made a pigtail for rear USB port off the original rear AV wires.

Installed new belt tensioner, idler, and belt.
About this time I...

First up discovered a exhaust manifold crack on the drivers side, couldn’t hear it with the windows up (that Lexus sound proofing) good 6 hour first project.
Steering wheel was the typical cracked disgusting mess so replaced that with a ebay...
I’d never been to Virginia before it’s a pretty place.
Headlight bulbs have been replaced with some LEDs
Drove till about 3am then slept in the back at a rest stop.

Trip was mostly uneventful...
Proud recently new owner of a 2000 LX470 with 247,000ish miles, figured I’d make a “build” thread of all the repairs/mods.
