Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 2011 Lexus ES350

When should you have your 2011 Lexus ES350 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2011 Lexus ES350 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Lexus ES350, 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 ES350 feels bouncy, pulls 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 2011 Lexus ES350 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, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your ES350 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lexus ES350 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2011 Lexus ES350 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 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 ES350’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lexus ES350 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your ES350’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 ES350 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lexus's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your 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 Lexus ES350? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lexus intended.
  • When should I have my Lexus ES350 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your ES350’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lexus service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
