Just swap head units. He's got an OEM that I want and I have an Alpine that he wants. Both trucks are 2018s and had/have the Entune Premium Audio with nav.

Hi all,

New to the forum and the LC/LX world. Just picked up a 2003 LX470 from the south. Unfortunately, looks like I have a hefty LC tax to pay as I live in the People's Republic of Maryland and their inspection process has flagged a couple of things I need to address before I can get state inspection to pass. In particular, the power steering rack has a minor leak and seeping so that needs to be replaced. Also, seems both front wheel bearings are loose so need to be replaced/repacked. and finally the left CV axel boot is leaking.

Any recommendations on where I can get this work done? I live in Montgomery County but open to going to Northern VA to get this stuff done right.

Thanks!

Welcome! :flipoff2:
Our go to Toyota mechanic is @OTRAMM, though he is in Bealton, VA (near Warrenton). He knows Toyotas and does great work. There may be a good mech in your area, but I'll let the MD crew chime in on that. @Betteron2wheels, @dbug ?

I don't know if you fixed it yet but check out Hanagan's Tire in Gaithersburg, MD; I always use them for mounting tires but they do everything. I've also used them for brake work. You can source your own parts and have them install it for you.
This is the only other place I would take my truck if I can't do it, or can't get it to OTRAMM.
Where did you get your inspection at?

Good luck!

I have used Hanagan's before for tires - good to know they know cruisers as well. Got the inspection done at Rockville Auto Clinic.
