Does Your 2004 Infiniti Q45 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2004 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 bounces, drifts 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 2004 Infiniti Q45 in for steering and suspension services. 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 take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 your Q45 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 Q45 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2004 Infiniti Q45’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Q45’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Infiniti Q45 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Q45’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 Q45 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my Q45's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Infiniti Q45? 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.
  • Does my Infiniti Q45 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Infiniti service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
