Not sure how reply to the term "Fixed"! If you are referring to rebuilt units I have not seen any advertised on the internet for a LS430. New Toyota Air Struts are $1100 each!

My 2002 LS430 was purchased two years ago with a 100,000 warranty. At last count the dealer has spent about $5,000.00 in repairs. Well worth the peace of mind. This is an expensive car to repair!
