2012 QX56 Infiniti Steering & Suspension Services

Is It Time For 2012 Infiniti QX56 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2012 Infiniti QX56, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your QX56 feels bouncy, sways 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 2012 Infiniti QX56 in for steering and suspension repairs. 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 check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub 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 all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Infiniti QX56 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Infiniti QX56 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2012 Infiniti QX56 suspension system. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your QX56’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Infiniti QX56 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2012 Infiniti QX56 suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2012 QX56 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Infiniti's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Infiniti QX56 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. 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.
  • When does Infiniti QX56 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 QX56’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Infiniti's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
