1997 Infiniti QX4 Suspension Service & Repair

Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1997 Infiniti QX4

When should you have your 1997 Infiniti QX4 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 1997 Infiniti QX4 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1997 Infiniti QX4, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your QX4 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Infiniti QX4 in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 your Infiniti QX4’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Infiniti QX4

Your 1997 Infiniti QX4’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Infiniti up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your QX4’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Infiniti QX4 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Infiniti QX4 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

1997 QX4 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my QX4's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Infiniti QX4? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Infiniti QX4 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your QX4’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Infiniti's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
