Is It Time For 2001 Lexus ES300 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2001 Lexus ES300, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your ES300 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2001 Lexus ES300 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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your ES300 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lexus ES300 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lexus ES300 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2001 Lexus ES300 suspension system. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lexus up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2001 Lexus ES300’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Lexus ES300 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Lexus ES300 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.

2001 ES300 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lexus's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lexus ES300? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 Lexus intended.
  • When should I have my Lexus ES300 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your ES300’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
