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.

You likely have a leaking air bag in the suspension, they last about 100,000 miles on average. Have a shop test the bags for leaks.

Does the car have hydro-pneumatic suspension similar to big Citroen's? If so checked the level settings and fluid levels. If not you need to get the suspension checked, springs, shock absorbers and all linkages.

I need new shocks on my 2001 LX470. The Toyata Dealership in Longview, TX has quoted me $1618 to replace the shocks. No one else will do it because the shocks have hydraulic fluid running through them. ...

take a look at for replacement suspension kits for that vehicle. it is going to be expensive to swap it in, but once you have that stuff taken out you won't have to fix it again and again and again.

Heater on 1999 lx 470 will not blow hot air only warm at highest setting.

If you are not getting any warm air in the car, you are most likely going to find that your engine cooling system is low on coolant.With the engine COLD, remove the filler cap on the coolant resevoir, and look to see if the fluid is up to the "FULL COLD" line. If it is not, you need to have the entire cooling system looked at to see if you have a leak in the system. Because coolant in a sealed system doesn't just disappear!

2003 Lexus LX 470 I have replaced upper and lower control arms driver side and all four sway link now the SUV acting up strange with the height control system its on low and not going on a normal setting...

Try turning your air system off and jack up the SUV. move the control arms around, then up and down the best you can. Let the SUV down on the ground, take a look to see how level the SUV sits . It should reset itself when you turn back on the air supply system. If not, you may have punctured or damaged one or both of the airbags if you lifted the SUV without turning the air off first. You may get lucky, but remember to shut off air supply if you have bags for suspension in the furture.

Change spare tire removing spare tire

Put the car on a level ground, with the transmission in PARK. Lossen the nuts of the tire to change. Chuck back-tires if changing front, or chuck front-tires if changing back-tires. Jack up the car enough to raise the concerned tire off the ground. Remove nuts, and pull out the tire. Put in spare tire.
Hand tighten the nuts a considerable, but you might use the wrench to tighten a bit because this is a big/heavy car. Lower the car, and again tighten the nuts securely in a diagonal pattern with the wrench- two grunts used to be the rule of the thumb.
