Lexus Independent Garage in Surrey West London

Recommended Posts

Dear Lexus owners,

Do you know an independent Lexus specialist in Surrey or West London for front suspension work (  front wishbone bushes starting to perish ) Lexus Twickenham quoted £1,600 for replacement and the two new arms are around £300. I think a good local Independent garage would be able to do it for much less I hope. This recommendation work come as an advisory on the last MOT. There is no noise or any problems with the front suspension, but if the rubber is cracked it needs to get replaced. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance

I did the replacement on my previous 400h myself after looking into the workshop manual and finding that Lexus say remove the engine and transmission as the very first step. It was not easy and required the engine jacking up once the mounting was loosened and also the subframe dropping to the last few threads on the bolts to get enough clearance to remove the engine mount. Not an easy job.

I wouldn't rush into this job if I were you ,a bush can look perished on the exposed rubber part if there is no movement in the bush  it is as they say a advisory the rubber internally is ok I had a Ford Focus and for 5 years running your suspension wishbone rubber mounts are perishing but no movement etc .its a ploy most of the time to get you to do work that's not needed for a long time . Would they replace them if it was under warranty I think you would fine we will monitor it on the service sir .

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
