Pop goes the Lexus
Some 2011-2012 Lexus LS 460 AWD vehicles may exhibit a front suspension noise described as a “spring pop” while driving slowly and turning the steering wheel to the left or right lock position.
New front left and right coil spring assemblies are now available to address this condition.

After replacing the front springs, perform a wheel alignment to adjust toe-in, camber and/or caster. Also readjust the headlight alignment and adjust the object monitoring system following procedures outlined in the service manual.
