Either get a new bushing kit or get an after market from mog and size it down a bit smaller diameter and reinstalled it.

if that don't even work. Then DO it my way.

Mark where the oem bushing resting on the sway bar. Then after take the sway bar
off go to get a beat welded around where you mark. When reinstall mark and shave off the parts where the welding beads meet the chasis.

That is like my perminant fix!! lol

Great to have an actual Lexus mechanic on the boards! I'm buddies with one of the mechanics at my dealership (master tech) and he is a WEALTH of knowledge. It's seriously unbelievable.

I see, I guess I can go the bushing route. You know where I can get a better bushing? I tried looking it up on Sewell but I think I found the one for the stock sway bar

How do perform the sqeaky seat TSB myself?

Is it normal for the IS350 to have motor whine during acceleration?

Thanks!

What does code33 - Open in air mix damper position sensor circuit. Or, open or short in air mix servomotor circuit. Or, air mix servomotor locked mean? I get medium cool air still on r12. Was going to have freeze 12 put in or maybe convert. But saw this code so know i don't know.
