Hello everyone, I new to this forum
(I will post my introduction as soon as I have some decent pictures of my GS300).

I am currently stationed in germany and I am running into the issue of finding hood and boot struts for my 1993 GS300 for a reasonable price.

there is virtually nothing available for the jzs147, but tons of struts for the 2nd gen. Gs300

So my question is simply, can I use the s160 struts on my gs300?

your best bet would be to measure the length of the struts and see if you can find dimensions for the s160 struts.

If i recall correctly, i got mine from strongarm struts many years ago (boot only) they had a listing for a 147.

thank you for the input.
Meanwhile I found a alternative solution. Rockauto.com has a ton of parts for the 1st.gen lexus gs300.
I ordered all 4 struts for 57$ (US) shipping included.
