    The rear shocks are holding up great, no issues and I love the ride.

    The part # I used was
    48530-35082

    But my understanding was that Toyota may have changed the number? I'm sure a dealership can figure it out though.

    Just remember that it will seem sort of stiff for the first few weeks but it will soften up quite a bit after that.

    Best of luck with it.

    I had the factory bags replaced at Earnhardt Lexus

    6905 E McDowell Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85257
    (480) 990-7000

    If you think that it's possible the bags are fine but something else is going on, a Lexus dealership is about the only game in town that is going to be able to properly diagnose what the problem is.

    The dealership though definitely the most expensive option.

    If you decide to convert to a steel coil kit, I unfortunately don't have a good place to recommend, most of the suspension work I do myself, but I would think almost any shop could easily handle the job if you brought them a kit.

    I don't have any first hand experience, but there is such a kit from Strutmasters
    I would figure $200-$300 in labor to install, so you're in the $600- $700 range after everything.

    Also, here are some better thread regarding such a conversion

    Good luck with it, hope I helped
