1999 Lexus GS300 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Lexus recommend steering and suspension service for 1999 Lexus GS300s?

Does Your 1999 Lexus GS300 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1999 Lexus GS300, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your GS300 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1999 Lexus GS300, bring it 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Lexus GS300’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lexus GS300 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 1999 Lexus GS300’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. 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 components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1999 Lexus GS300 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lexus GS300 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GS300’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.
