  7. hi all I have just got back my lexus gs 300 sport from Toyota it went in with a knocking sound and it turnt out to be my front tyre out of shape and also a seized rear caliper also they said diff oil needed changing and brake fluid so upon my drive with the man who done it I was happy no sounds and feels new then as I drove home at low speed of 10mph /15 the knocking appears he did say rear bearings were rubbing so my question is do these when they get hot knock!
  8. Are brilliant thankyou I had it done by a garage that are on the alignment page as well
  9. Hi all well I would use the door pillar pressure but it's not for the sport version neither is the handbook I can only say that the sport version are the correct wheels as I ve looked at photos of other gs 's I believe that they are borbet wheels so I can only assume that the tyres and wheels are correct but another issue I have is wear on the inner rear I have had the hunter laser for camber and toe and front track so they all should be correct unless there is another way of setting them up
  10. I asked the garage what the pressure should be and that's what they said 44 all round another garage said 33 all round then when I took it to this well know nationwide garage they said 44 all round so bit stuck to what I should be putting in I will try 33 all round today thankyou for your replies
