Strut Life

I take care of my friend's 03 ES300. Since I personally drive it only a few miles 2x per year, it is hard for me to distinguish between a normal Lexus soft ride and worn struts. The car has 140k...

You may be right although just because you can do it on a Camry does not mean you can do it on an ES300. In either case, the 03 ES with the plastic plenum is a totally different animal.
