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.

AHC System is Failing. Leak from valve assembly on frame below rear passenger door


here is a good write up on the AHC system and its funcitons, more than likely the hydro-pneumatic accumulator which i believe is mounted on the frame rail under the passenger rear door has failed and more than likely will need to be replaced. I don't believe they can be rebuilt.

Lexus lx 470, low suspension fluid, effecting


Is the suspension fluid low. If it is, try first to add specific Suspension Fluid for LX470. It is part number 08886-01805 and any Lexus Dealer would be able to look up. Cost about $ 30 it comes in 2.5 Liters. If driving at higher speeds it is normal for it to drop just a bit and resume to balanced height when parked.

Look at the "rear" of the engine where it joins the transmission. Follow the positive cable from the battery to it. Cog with the 'teeth' you see engages the flywheel to start the motor.
