Just want to thank everybody who gave me advice on how to get rid of my engine squeel or whirring noise on my 96 LX450. Relaced all belts with OEM parts (got rid of old ''notched'' belts) and truck runs as quiet as new!!!!!!!!!
Thanks alot again from your ''Canadian hoser'' friend !!!! Tim
p.s. - replaced all my shocks about a month ago - was wondering if I should repace my springs as well?- I've got 120,000 miles on my unit.

I personally didn't answer you question, but I just wanted to welcome you to the forums and say, "nice choice in vehicles" - I have the same model year - what color is yours?

If you prefer a firmer ride then replace them with OME. If you want a lift then replace them with longer springs & shocks (OME or Slee)

Your stock springs should last, Oh - say 350,000 miles. Really. If you need to mod for heavy offroad use that's another issue altogether, but light/mod offroading and daily driver use - 350,000 would be a good guess. I base this upon my brother in law's 290,000 '93 driving exactly like my 145,000 mile '93.
