  1. I have recently changed mine on a 2009 RX450h with 82,000. After buying the car I was disappointed by the bouncing over bumps and pot holes. I replaced the shocks with standard shocks from Lexus parts direct, £55.20 each + £50 to fit by my local garage. I think the ride is a bit better but not great. Fine on flattish roads, if the car is loaded up it also rides very well. On poor local roads, I still notice the bouncing, but not quite as bad as it was. https://www.lexuspartsdirect.co.uk/parts/lexus-rx/lexus-rx-phase-iii-2009-2015/lexus-rx-2009-2015-steering-suspension/lexus-rx-phase-3-rear-shock-absorber-for-3-5l-petrol-hybrid/
  2. Hi, I had the 10 year old shocks replaced and the ride is improved. When going over pot holes, bumps, speed bumps, the rebound is quicker and the car less bouncy, so it was worth doing. enjoying the car very much. Dave
  3. Thanks, I purchased a couple of rear shocks from Lexus Parts Direct, my usual garage will fit them on Tuesday for £55, total cost about £160. Here's hoping for a smoother ride.
  4. Hello, I just bought a 2009 450f SE with 82000 miles, it's in very good shape all round and drives very well. This weekend I put 250 miles on it on a long journey. However I noticed that it was very bouncy when going over uneven surfaces, which was disappointing. I had a look at the shocks and they are the conventional type (non-air) thankfully. I plan to start with replacing the rear shocks. Is there a preferred brand ? should I get them from Lexus of another maker? I am hoping to make the ride as good as it can be and don't mind paying a bit more for better shocks. thanks, looking forward to enjoying my first Lexus. Dave
