Is It Time For 1998 Infiniti Q45 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 1998 Infiniti Q45, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Q45 jolts, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1998 Infiniti Q45 in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. 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 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1998 Infiniti Q45’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1998 Infiniti Q45’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Infiniti Q45 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Infiniti Q45 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1998 Q45 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Infiniti's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Infiniti Q45 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. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Infiniti intended.
  • When does Infiniti Q45 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? 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 top it off per Infiniti's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
