    Quick question about AHC ride with extra weight

    My 98 LX 470 recently hit a 178K and I am seeing the early signs of another major haul for suspension. The front struts are beginning to sweat. If history repeats, the front accumulators will soon go and then the back struts and accumulators will follow. The last time the system went bad was...

    One more AHC trouble thread

    Guys, I've done a lot of searching, but still can't understand where the failure is. LC 2004, with VGRS and AHC. Couple of weeks ago I realised, that the car drives very rough. That's not my daily driver, so maybe the issue progressed longer ago and I just didn't pay attention to it. Anyway, it...
