Q: Shock Absorbers with variable adjustment suspension. 2001 Lexus ES300

asked by on

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is possible, however, I would definitely not recommend doing this since the electronic suspension is part of the vehicle ride control. If this is not properly hooked up and maintained, there is a good chance you will likely run into trouble codes and future computer-related problems on the vehicle.
