I had also had the PCV Valve replaced. And the A/C has been just verygood ( knock on wood).
I'm thinking to do the same. How about the cam shaft seal? Is that the parts number 13528?

I am planning for this project and i was speaking to a few friends one night and they told me about this vendor on ebay that they have purchased from before and that they recommend for items like the belt, water pump and etc.

What you guys think:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lexus-GX470-...#ht_2397wt_905

It seems like a great price!!

all depends on what brand those parts are, etc. i know they list the parts and names, but i dont know them so well.

my 2006 is at 80k and have not yet done timing belt/pump .....

Cam seals looked fine so did nothing since I understand the VVTI engines are a bit more work than the non-VVTIs.

$980 out the door at a dealer (typical pricing more along the lines of $1700) and also got a new Tundra loaner. It's a beast of a truck, but glad to be back in my mom-mobile.
So this was at a Toyota dealer? I am trying to get this done ASAP and a shop, non dealer, says your price is great. But dunno if I could get this in Cali.

I know ROK's post was in late-April, and stiles_s made the assumption base on ROK's location being 'NW', it might of been in Seattle though it might of been somewhere in Oregon too. Since he got a Tundra as a loaner, I'm assuming it was a Toyota dealer.

Lexus of Seattle, here, is currently running a promo for the exact work that ROK listed, for $895 which is normally $1,295. With our 9.5% sales tax up here, you're pretty much square at $980. I'm at 93K so I'm about to bring it in to have it done.

You might have to check around Toyota and Lexus dealers around your area to see if they're doing any promotions.

Cheers,
Kermee

My friend owns a large reputable shop that does accident repair work. Been in business over 40yrs. His mechanics will do the job for $400 labor and I got this kit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/190545600729...84.m1497.l2649

we both sat down. looked over the parts and prices etc. etc. to see if I was able to get the best prices and was getting all the parts I needed.

Default Having mine done as I write...

$1045 for timing belt, water pump, tensioners, coolant, drive belt, spark plugs, and wash at the local Lexus dealer. I was 1st quoted $1800, but I decided to call and ask how much parts would be. After I got that, I asked how much for installation and it was $750 less with spark plugs and drive belt added on. Pretty sweet...

purchased this parts at sewell and had local motorsport specializing Lexus cars (vendor sponsor here ) installed $500 out the door less than 2 months ago before I took a trip to las vegas (from northern california here), just have to used original parts coz warranty still in effect. My local lexus stealership quoted me for $2300 for parts and labor.

Mine did the timing belt, coolant, water pump, etc. for $895 + tax. $850 is definitely a good price... They probably 'shaved' 1/2 hour of labor somewhere if it's being done at a Lexus service center.

Default Lexus of Seattle - just had it done

I just had my timing belt done at Lexus of Seattle for the $895 special. Very happy with the service and the loaner. Had an all-wheel is-250 for the day. i inquired at Lexus of Bellevue and they were not dealing. They wanted $1295 and the service manager was not believing the price. the price was advertised on tthe Lexus of Seattle website. You would think the competing service manager who know about it.

I inquired about new shocks and they said not to replace the shocks as they will go out to 170,000 +miles. Good news but kind of hard to imagine.
