Since you've owned both, can you comment on the drive-ability differences between the Lexus and the Honda? How are you finding the stiffer seats, stiffer suspension, stiffer steering and road noise?

Rear sag is more due to sagging springs than blown struts. Replace the spring, but make sure you go OEM Lexus (Camry springs are different) to regain stock ride height and comfort.
