    Hey how are things? Thought I would ask your input on a couple things I'm not really sure about. My 03 GX I am starting to plan on front and rear suspension in that order. Keeping the adjustable, fronts I am changing the coils, but is there anything "special" about the shocks or struts in the front?The rear ones have plugs if that's correct, I just literally started looking into this and am getting thrown off by the mode adjustments we can choose.

    Also have you ever changed or know a post to remove and replace the drive belt tensioner? My old Lexus dealer thought the noise was the AC compressor going out and replaced it. A independent shop says the front of the engine has to come off basically to where the timing belt is visible.

    Alan, I need to bug you again. I am doing some under body and chassis work so while I was down there I am lubing the famous drive shaft. I have the updated 1, I know I read somewhere when techs do it they look for movement to know its full. I did my rear 1 and it took quit a bit, 2nd time I have done it. So I knew it was getting close to full, slowed down the grease and I did get movement, I Mean just a bit, looking at my keyboard, no more than the width of the letter "i". What do you think? Also do you know what happens if it is filled too much? I know it can destroy major components, what about on a test drive, what am I feeling or listening for? Thanks Alan!
