GS450h 2007 Shock Absorber Failed

Recommended Posts

Sorry for late reply, didn't see this, oups.

All my bits came from Nippon auto spares, great company, great prices, fast delivery and very helpful. Only bit that disapointed me was that i ordered track rod ends, not realising the ball joint wasnt part of it. They didnt mention this and i couldnt return them as nippon had to special order them for me. Guess it was my fault for not confirming before ordering though.

      Hi
      I've got a 2006 GS450h SE that's done about 100K. Got an advisory on one of the front shocks leaking. Lexus want £500 to put in a new one - but that'll be just the one shock and elsewhere here advice is to replace shocks in pairs - so £1000 for the front pair.
      I've tried to find alternative suppliers for the parts (which list at £315 from Lexus direct) - but seems very hard to find anyone in UK that supplies OEM or equivalent parts. There are several in the USA that offer apparently similar parts for much less (e.g. here), but model differences mean there was no GS450h offered in USA in 2006, so that part is for 2007 US spec GS450h SE.
      Alternatively, I've found a breaker in UK that offers pair from 2006 Lexus SE for £60.
      I'm sure I'm not first person to want to replace shocks on this car, but little about options in the forum threads.
      Anyone got any guidance on whether the 48520-80176 part would fit my GS450h SE, and / or knowledge of best options for sourcing replacement shock for the car in the UK?
      Thanks a lot for any help you can give!
