Hi - hope this hasn't been covered already. I have had my 2gen IS350 Fsport for four years (My first & only Lexus, and is the best car I've owned in the past 50 years!) but the front suspension seems to be getting harsher, and there is a slight "coarseness" felt through the pedals & steering wheel. 115,000km. Running Pilot Sport 4 tyres, but these pre-date this issue. Need diagnosis, but hard to find someone I trust to give it. The car hasn't sustained any damage. My gut feeling is shock absorbers and/or a damaged (on the inside) wheel from potholes. Any thoughts, or a suspension guru in Brisbane northside?

I wouldn't think it's the tyres. To be honest I just got some PS5s installed, and they feel slightly harsher than the PS4s although they are quieter.

Bushes can wear and compress. Tyre pressures should be around 38 all round.

Go to pedders and pay for a run on their test bed. It will show any bush, shock or component wear.
