Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** ***** i have a 2007 toyota landcruiser LC5 which has developed a problem with the rear suspension has anybody any ideas or any quick fixes i could try

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The jeep past wee while has not just been as nice to drive only due to felling most bumps if not every bump the other day i decided to move the comfort suspension buttons and jeep just wee down on rear had to drive it home (not a nice sale it was just sitting on the bump stops) i got jeep on lift today i see the wee short leveling rod / bar which has a nut on each end of it is broke on the drivers rear would this affect the self leveling on the rear? i also paid quite a bit of attention to the air compressor on the passengers rear should you hear it come on once the jeep is switched on / started just cant hear anything and was wondering if this is big part of my problem
