Changing The Front Suspension Arm

Recommended Posts

My IS200 recently passed its MOT' with a couple of advisories:

I was advised that the bush had a fair amount of play, and would require replacement. Lexus do not sell the bush alone and as such I have had to purchase the suspension arm.

How easy is it to change the arm? Has anyone completed this task?

I was wondering if I could fit them without a pit or ramp, etc. In other words sitting on the floor of my garage with thew car jacked up?

I would say it is do-able, assuming everything comes undone. I would recommend getting a new adjuster nut and bolt for the inner end just in case the old one is seized into the bush. Make sure you mark up the adjuster so you can put it back at the same adjustment.

Also, You would need to get both wheels of the ground, as the anti-roll bar will need to be disconnected which can't be done while under stress.
