We, too have a 2015 CPO that was pulling to the right. The tires had uneven wear, as it looked like the previous owner never rotated the tires at all. I finally purchased a new set of tires and the problem was still there. It took three trips to the shop (NTB) but it's finally fixed. They stated that a slight caster adjustment made the difference (no formal way to adjust, just tweaking a few bolts, etc.). Now it tracks straight.

For those who have the issue fixed by the dealer.... Can you post up some information on what they did or provide the service write up for it? Mine pulls to the right and is not steady... It wanders every where and can't be driven with one hand. Yes, it's wrong to do and you're supposed to have 2 hands on the wheel...

I don't have a GX, I have an RC F, but I've been searching all of the different forums for alignment issues. I hit a large pothole going about 45 - 50 MPH, which I couldn't avoid, unfortunately. At the first dealership I went to, the technician rode with me and said that the alignment is within specs. He swapped the tires side to side (can't do front to back since the wheels are staggered). Vehicle still pulled to the right. He then said that due to the crown of the road and the width of the tires (wider = more sensitive to following crown), this was natural behavior. He mentioned he could correct the geometry, but it would cause premature tire wear. I said no thanks.

I wanted a second opinion from another Lexus dealer in the area. So, I explained to the service advisor my experience at the first dealership. I wanted them to check all suspension components and let me know what they found. It's been two days so far. I was updated today that the tech said nothing was wrong with suspension, but they would have to align with a cradle shift to fix the pulling. The camber is off and this is the only way to fix it. I'm picking up my car tomorrow, so we'll see.

I had similar situation on my GSF sports when I couldn't avoid hitting the pot hole, I repaired/balanced the wheel. But still the steering wheel was shaking and the car was pulling toward the right side. Dealer as usual couldn't find anything long story short I went to a frame/alignment specialist shop and they were able to fix it 300$ later my car was as straight as a arrow. I see your in TX also if ur in Dallas I can refer you to the shop.

I think we are the pot hole haven of the nation... If a part was replaced, what was the exact part they replaced? Is it a common part to bend? What do I need to look out for?
I had $3,500 worth of front end work done on my '06 F-150 and it rides like a Caddy! Amazing how you get used to the slow degradation over time.

I would love to know where the shop is. I'm in north Dallas (Flower Mound).

Is there a website where I can look up the original OEM alignment spec for 2015 GX460? My last alignment (done at local Lexus dealership) shows positive toe (front) and negative toe/angle (rear).
