Is It Time For 1998 Infiniti QX4 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1998 Infiniti QX4, 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 QX4 jolts, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1998 Infiniti QX4 in for steering and suspension services. 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. 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 your Infiniti QX4’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Infiniti QX4 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1998 Infiniti QX4 suspension system. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and 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 QX4’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Infiniti QX4 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1998 Infiniti QX4 suspension 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.

1998 QX4 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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 help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Infiniti QX4 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Infiniti intended.
  • Does my Infiniti QX4 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 QX4’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Infiniti service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
