700nm I think. Or at least that's for the eight speed, not sure about the gearbox in a 2012 model.

When did ST Maxx's start coming out in that size? They would have been my pick also but it was either ST or STT for that size when I was looking. Nice rims too.

If you can afford them icon (IVD) shockies are the best I've used, though they were on a Prado, not sure if they have anything for a lux. King or Fox shocks are supposed to be good aswell.
