Q: Where does the comfort ride plug in to the strut on a 1997 Lexus ES300

asked by on

Is the top of the strut were the comfort ride plugs in

My car has 229299 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Yes, the ride control system will plug into the top of the struts. That is where the struts are adjusted by the computer. If there is nothing on the top of the struts then someone may have removed them or bypassed the system. If you want to get the system working again then you will need to replace the struts with the correct ones.
