Lexus GX 470 Rear Suspension Conversion Kit

The passenger side air bag failed on our GX 470. The driver’s side airbag had cracks in it and the condition of the air compressor was unknown. After much research, decided to purchase the Strutmasters conversion kit. The quality of the components is excellent. I do have some install suggestions that would help:

1. After raising and supporting the vehicle, remove the spare tire which will allow more room to remove the old air bags and for installing the new coil springs.
2. When installing the lower coil spring plate/puck assembly, I super glued the flat washer and lock washer together, then super glued those two washers to the underside of the rear axle perch. This made it much easier to install the bolt and nut since the space below the spring perch is confined.
3. Kick panel removal – first remove the “dead pedal” next to the kick panel. It pops off with a flat blade screwdriver. Then remove the retaining nut holding the kick panel in place.

After the kit was installed, the ride is very good. The vehicle is slightly taller in the back. There have been no issues with any of the springs or shocks and no strange noises. Overall I would recommend the kit to anyone. It took me most of a day to install, taking my time. The worst part was cutting off the top nut on the old shocks.
