2005 Q45 Infiniti Steering & Suspension Services

2005 Infiniti Q45 Maintenance Schedule

When does Infiniti recommend steering and suspension service for 2005 Infiniti Q45s?

Does Your 2005 Infiniti Q45 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Infiniti Q45, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Q45 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2005 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 Q45 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Infiniti Q45 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Infiniti Q45’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. 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 factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your 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.

2005 Q45 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Infiniti's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Infiniti intended.
  • When should I have my Infiniti Q45 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your Q45’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Infiniti service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
