    80 Series Shock Options?

    You put stock shocks on with an OME lift? Was reading this to see consensus. Need shocks but have the 2.5 inch lift. The Tokico’s are readily available? Tom

    96 LX450 Turns Over Intermittently

    Got a rebuilt in USA Denso starter for around $169. All good now. Had a bear of a time breaking loose the two bolts between not having a lot of room to get leverage. Ended up using a cheater bar that allowed me to crack each bolt loose. Rest was a breeze. Did battery while there. Tom

    96 LX450 Turns Over Intermittently

    Ordered a Denso remanufactured starter. Bought new battery. The old one was 3.5 years old. Figured I’d do both of these now. Florida heat kills batteries any ways. Going to replace starter myself this weekend. Thanks Tom

    96 LX450 Turns Over Intermittently

    Went to start my LX and it just clicked. Turned off ignition. Repeated and then clicked again with all lights coming on. Scan gauge showed 12.8 bolts. Turned ignition again and started right up. Ran it for 20-30 minutes. Was showing 13.4 v on scan while running. Turned off and same thing. Hooked...

    Sound that disappears when remove foot from gas pedal

    Bought a new oem drive shaft for the rear. Came with new joints and balanced. Cheaper for me to pull and replace than to have a local shop pull, replace u joints, balance and reinstall. Cost $367. Problem solved. Cruiser is tighter than new. Would love to download sound clip so others could...

    Sound that disappears when remove foot from gas pedal

    No. Tried at work. Wanted to jump curb but held it back. Since noise is intermittent may have just been sample. Going to try again. Just can’t figure why letting foot off gas affects noise. If I am driving at 30 and let off gas everything is still should be spinning

    Sound that disappears when remove foot from gas pedal

    Started an earlier thread about noise that seems to come from underneath front of vehicle. Sound has become more prevalent. If the metal scraping sound occurs more often now, not affected by speed bumps or road imperfections. When sound starts, (only happens with vehicle moving) if I remove my...

    Random rattle noise on 96 LX450

    Did a quick check and could not budge the shields. Going to check further this weekend with motor completely cool. I just drove over 1/2 mile over a root infested road and no noise. Then in a flat section the hollow steel rattle sound came around for 2 seconds and stopped. I think it was when...
