Hi, I may have to have the rear shocks replaced on my 2000 GS430. After a bit of research I think these are the required replacements. I understand that KYB might be the lexus part. 

Can any of you good folks confirm:

1. They're good parts to use.

2. That the one in the screenshot is the correct part.

Thanks folks.

Ian. KYB are indeed the manufacturer Toyota/Lexus use. I cannot confirm the part numbers, but no doubt someone else will. To be honest on some Lexus models KYB shocks are not known for reliability especially the shaft seal being prone to leaking even at low mileage (20,000), and just over one year old out of guarantee. There seems little in the way of alternatives however.

Thanks for that. Any idea if there are better shocks to use (that don't cost a fortune!).

Wow, at that price I'd not care if they only lasted 20k. Heck of a lot cheaper than the 290 each I put on my car yesterday! It's almost 1/5 the price, so that's 100k worst case scenario per one pair for the 450h, and nice new suspension through the life lol

Sorry can't help with part numbers, but, all mice checked out on mylparts.com so perhaps that can help confirm or correct.

It looks as though price depends on wg=here you buy. I've done a bit more research and it looks as though it is the correct part number, Thing is, it's 192.90 from these folks: http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/rear-shock-absorber/lexus-gs-jzs160-uzs161-uzs160-430-283hp_v15577_g900002.html

      Hi there,
      By accident I become an owner of GS430. Salvaged this fine piece of Japanese engineering from hands of mad youngster who clearly did not have an idea how to maintained it to appropriate standard but wanted to have a rice machine 
       
      So to name few mods:
       
      - no cats + blowing exhaust
      - Front grille made out of fiberglass + filler + B&Q steel mesh
      - ls400 brakes with no RCA + angle grinder mod to tie rod ends 
      - RX8 wheels with +30mm spacers
      - random lug nuts
      - polybushed front axle 
      - leaks from both rocker cover gaskets
      - LPG that does not work
      - hazy, yellowed headlights
      - weed car scent 
       
      Drove it in this appalling condition and felt in love. Very erratic handling, loud as hell but..... there is plenty of power! Decision has been made - give it 2nd life and restore the original look.
       
      Purchased so far:
      - Fat 5-spoke LS430 wheels
      - various exhaust bits
      - rocker cover gaskets
      - 0w30 engine oil + filter + ATF T-IV + pink coolant
       
      Hope I will find here help with sourcing various bits and bobs as well as advice in changing car's appearance. Cheers!

      Fault: "VSC" (Vehicle Stability Control) and "VSC off" warning lights stay on


      Car: 2nd Gen Lexus GS430 (UK - right-hand drive vehicle) - 2004 model

      How did the fault arise?
      Car ran out of fuel just short of a petrol station. I put it in neutral and manually pushed it, just a bit. After filling up and switching on, the warning lights came on, and ever since then, these warning lights have stayed on. They were never there prior to this pushing - 100% certain.

      What have I tried to do since?
      In the central console (between the front seats) there is a button to switch VSC off. That has no effect at all.
      I have tried disconnecting the Battery for 30 minutes. Each time on reconnection, the warning lights come back on almost immediately.
      I have looked for the OBD-II connector, because I read that shorting out pins 4 and 14 of this connector might clear the fault. This connector is supposed to be near the boot-release (trunk-release), but I cannot find it. I have peered underneath and looked for any panel, and used Google Images, to no avail.

      HELP!

      My recently acquired GS430 is losing around 1litre of coolant every 200 miles.
      No obvious sign of an external leak.
      Engine Oil & Cap look healthy. Recent new rad fitted by Lexus.
      Block test was negative.
      Can the exhaust be tested for traces of coolant with a Gas Analyser?
