When does Lexus recommend steering and suspension service for 2001 Lexus GS300s?

When To Get 2001 Lexus GS300 Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2001 Lexus GS300, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your GS300 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2001 Lexus GS300 in for steering and suspension services. 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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems 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 an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lexus GS300 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Your 2001 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2001 Lexus GS300 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Lexus GS300 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GS300’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 GS300 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lexus's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lexus GS300 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Lexus intended.
  • Does my Lexus GS300 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GS300’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
