Sometimes if you don’t catch that air bag leak early, you wind up burning out he compressor from it constantly running..

It was my turn. I'd been expecting it.

Just replaced both rear shocks on my '08 GX w/99Kmi. Not an inexpensive endeavor at just under ~$550/ea + ~$100 installation labor.

Briefly toyed with the idea of Bilsteins and FJ springs or an Old Man Emu set-up, but the speed and convenience of an OEM solution won out. Maybe next time?!

Front struts still allegedly look good, but I'll replace them soon enough along with upper shock mounts per @RCsGX (post 54 on https://www.clublexus.com/forums/gx-...eliable-4.html)

Height sensors and air bags still allegedly look good, too. I'll keep an eye and ear on their "up's and down's."

Happy motoring.

No idea of quality but there are now 3rd party adjustable shock options for $170/each.
