Sportcross Front Suspension

Are there differences between the IS300 and IS300 Sportcross front suspension (2002) ?

Specifically tie rod ends ?

I would appreciate recommendations of replacement parts for tie rod ends and other parts to replace as long as I'm there.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think so, should be the same. Call Sewell Lexus, they are friendly there. They also have the parts diagrams online if you want to figure it out yourself.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

Yes they are the same. I highly recommend getting MOOG parts. We've been using them here for a long time and I have nothing but good things to say about them. I personally have their ball joints, outer tie rod ends, and sway bar end link. Very well built stuff and they actually build these parts stronger than OEM with Moog's Problem Solver lineup.

You can get them through for cheaper than anyone else 99% of the time. Shipping is really reasonable too!

MOOG Part # ES800309 - Front Left Outer - $27.79
MOOG Part # ES800310 - Front Right Outer - $27.79
MOOG Part # EV179 - Front Inner - $27.79

Shipping should be around $8.

Hope this helps.
