I would get them from Sewell Lexus in Dallas. got mine for 208 and shipping was cheap. You have to register here and then on their site for the additional discounts.
Did you just do the rears? How many miles did you have?

Stiles...check out the Firestone Coil Rite, no mods to the OEM or any replacement required, just this stuff goes around the coil, And you never get to suffer anymore bottoming.http://www.firestoneindustrial.com/riderite/

The Platform for GX has the similar setup to the 4Runner( without Air Susp ) and LX470. & Land Cruisers. The Kit is 4124 which will fit GX. They do have Air Kits to accomdate them.

I just purchased a 2007 GX in November that had 90k on it. Both rear shocks were replaced at 70k and the dealer replaced the front R shock as part of the 'make ready' for the sale. So, I figured I would spring for the last one (up front on the Left side) and make it new all around. The ride is great! The dealer did tell me that I did not need to replace that last front shock since it wasn't leaking but since I was able to get it done at dealer cost (part of the agreement when I bought the truck) I figured, why not. I had the timing belt and water pump replaced as well and put a new set of tires on it too. Might as well start off on the right foot. Mike

Default Rear suspension makes awful noise frequently

Hello, first time commenting. I am in a unique situation. I am stationed overseas in the middle east with the government and I brought my 2007 GX470 with me. A couple of months ago the rear suspension air compressor started coming on more frequently. Really loud noise. Today I took it into a local mechanic shop and he thinks it is the shock absorber that needs to be replaced. I need to order any parts needed from the states. Has anyone else had to fix this and what did it take? Thanks for the help...
