I have 2013 LC suspension that has 30,000 mall crawling miles. They are yours for free + shipping.Just received these today from Norwalk Toyota.
My 200 has 175k with original struts and shocks. Just noticed a slight seepage on one of the rear shocks, so I decided to replace both shocks and struts with OEM.
This will be my wife’s daily driver for another few years. I will make it my daily driver after that and make some mods to the suspension.

SQRRRL-thanks so much for the offer. Wish I had talked to you before I ordered these shocks and struts. By the time I paid to ship these back and paid shipping for yours, it would probably be best to just stick with what I got. Thanks again for the kind offer. Much appreciated!I have 2013 LC suspension that has 30,000 mall crawling miles. They are yours for free + shipping.
Ugh. Sorry you are still troubleshooting those gremlins with your headlights flickering. Will let you know how mine turns out. I am still running factory bulbs in my 2010. Hopefully will get to swapping out in the next few weeks.I had three, two deson and lastly a $$ oem toyota alternators put into my truck two months ago. Each one made my head lights flicker, pulse, when my car was stopped but in drive. When in park it was fine. Still does it. Traced everything to no avail. I run opt7 leds with the drivers. Switch out with newer version opt7 leds and still same disco stobe.
Be interested to see if you experience any of the same. Smart maintenance on your part.
Find a really good detail shop in your area. They can compound and polish your paint to get it looking really good again. As for the painted plastics, you can try lightly polishing only. Compounds will ruin the plastics. As for the rust around the KDSS Valves, get some rust remover and a small wire brush to scrub. Then try opening just a 1/4 turn to loosen and re-tighten. Throw some grease around them and they will be good to go. Best to apply a little grease their with each oil change or at least once a year.Thanks for sharing all the steps you're taking to baseline your 2010 LC. I just bought a black 09 with similar miles (167k), and I appreciate your sharing all the detailed steps you've taken.
How's your black paint? I live in the DC area, but my LC grew up in the CA desert. While that's awesome overall (no rust anywhere except the housing around the KDSS valves), there are some spots that appear sun damaged. I'm wondering if those areas can be fixed with a professional detail or if I'll need to repaint. The plastic pieces are the worst. I'm certain some of those will need painted.
I did the exact same thing! 1000% improvement!Decided on OEM wiper blades after many helpful posts on this website. My rear wiper was OEM so I was able to replace just the rubber blade insert. However my front blades had been replaced by the previous owner with the Toyota Sight Line wipers. Ordered 2 new OEM wipers from Norwalk Toyota online. Next time I need to replace wipers I can replace the rubber blades in these OEM wipers for about 7-8 bucks a piece. Looking forward to seeing how they work in the rain.

Great thread!Got a new set of tires for my 2010. Went with a set of Falken Wildpeak 3ATW’s. Very impressed with how quiet they are for an AT tire with pretty aggressive treads. These tires are a significant savings over the Nitto Grapplers or KO2’s. Not as durable offroad, but this 200 is my wife’s daily driver for now. That is why I went with this tire.
I went with a 275/65/18. It is about 1/2 inch taller and a bit narrower (about 1/2 inch) than the stock tire 285/60/18.

Very pleased with these tires. Super quiet on highway. Would highly recommend. Great tire for the money.Great thread!
How do you like these tires in regular street driving? - I'm thinking of swapping my OEM Dunlop 285/60/18s (2017 LC) as we tow a boat quite a bit and frequently use pretty sketchy ramps, but 99% of my driving is highway/pavement. Really like what those look like and the reviews are pretty much all great. Is there a noticeable (big) difference in noise with those in highway driving as compared to regular street tires?
