1997 Infiniti Q45 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1997 Infiniti Q45 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1997 Infiniti Q45 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1997 Infiniti Q45, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Q45 feels bouncy, leans 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 1997 Infiniti Q45, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Infiniti Q45 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Infiniti Q45 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Infiniti Q45 suspension system. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 1997 Infiniti Q45’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Infiniti Q45 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Infiniti Q45’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.

1997 Q45 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Infiniti's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new 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 Q45 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Infiniti intended.
  • Does my Infiniti Q45 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Q45’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Infiniti service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform smoothly.
