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

asked by on

I would like to know if I can replace the shock absorbers with variable adjustment suspension with normal shock absorbers (without the electric adjustment suspension).

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.
