2012 M56 Infiniti Steering & Suspension Services

Does Your 2012 Infiniti M56 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2012 Infiniti M56, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your M56 feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2012 Infiniti M56, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your M56 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Infiniti M56 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2012 Infiniti M56’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Infiniti up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2012 Infiniti M56’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Infiniti M56 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your M56’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 M56 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my M56's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Infiniti M56 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Infiniti intended.
  • When does Infiniti M56 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your M56’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Infiniti's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
