    Home made lx470 AHC over ride

    So I finally bought a 2005 LX470, really wanted a land cruiser but they are a lot more expensive. Anyway, I didn't want the AHC suspension but now that I have the LX I want a way to keep in in High if I want to. Researched and all I found was a Slee over ride switch which they no longer make. I...

    The ABCs of AHC - How to Measure, Flush, and Adjust all in one place

    I initially put this in the Definitive list of AHC maintenance items thread, but at almost 800 posts long and growing, it's going to get buried and the thread itself is very unwieldy. In an attempt to make as focused a summary as possible, I present "The ABCs of AHC." It's intended as a...

    Check 4-Wheel AHC System - Displayed Once, Now Cleared

    I fired up the truck in 30F weather and the "Check 4-Wheel AHC System" warning displayed. The warning has not re-appeared after multiple subsequent starts. I'm hesitant to ask this question as there may be too many possibilities, but is there a "common" thing I should check? At this point...

    2004 LX470 front right suspension stuck on low

    Turned right into a parking lot today and the front right suspension got stuck in the low position. Other 3 corners look to be in high mode. I parked and tried to lower/raise the suspension, but doesn’t move (light just blinks). The VSC is also stuck in the off position. Anyone have any ideas...

    Hey! So I just picked up my (new to me) '99 LX470 with 167,000 miles a few days ago. When I did the test drive everything on the AHC seemed to work fine, but i'm starting to notice some irregularities with it and after much reading I'm thinking it has to do with the pump but not totally sure...
