Hi. My boot may as well have no dampers fitted, the boot slams with a vengeance unless you control it's decent until the final few inches, then drop it.
I have had a dig around and I can't see any part numbers on either of the struts. There is a warning label with some unhelpful English but the rest Japanese.
Ebay have plenty, but all from cars of a similar age to mine (2008) which may or may not work.
I found http://www.sgs-engineering.com/car-boot-tailgate/lexus/is
The problem is they only have an IS300 as the model, not an IS250. The picture looks the same but I don't know if they are identical or not.
Does anyone know either the part number for an IS250 boot strut or know if the IS300 simply has a larger engine in the same body type?
Any opinion would be welcome ...
For a while now - and I suspect others do too sometimes - my RX makes a rumble sound, from the front?
I hear it when driving at slower speeds,straight, e.g., at 20 mph, but the road does not have to be particularly bumpy.
I suspect, based on reading and research, that it could be shock/top mount, related?
I am wondering... should I take it to my trusted independent garage, or should I take it to my equally trusted, local Lexus dealer.
It was bought from Lexus up North, about 9 months ago, and is still in its first year of Lexus warranty. So I'd rather keeps the costs down if possible...
Does anyone have a view?
