Question about 2003 Lexus LX 470
System dry of fluid. Is there alternative to buying fluid from Lexus. What is it hydraulic, trans other?
Caution on what to put in the LX470 automatic height adjustment system. Dealer said unless correct fluid is put in the system the seals may fail. Specifically warned against break fluid. Cost to repair is over $3,000. I bought a can of the fluid at the Lexus dealer for about $26. The can was approx. 1/2 gallon.

The Lexus LX470 has an Automatic Height Control (AHC) system. Do not ever put anything else in the Suspension Fluid Reservoir unless it is from a Lexus Dealer (or Toyota Dealer that's knowledgeable on what you need). It is part number 08886-01805 it is 2.5 Liters and they will be able to look it up (silver box can it is labeled Toyota Suspension Fluid AHC). It is important that you emphasize Suspension Fluid for LX470 with AHC. It will be a very costly mistake to use the wrong fluid.
