2018 Lexus GS350 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2018 Lexus GS350 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2018 Lexus GS350 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2018 Lexus GS350, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your GS350 jolts, 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 2018 Lexus GS350 in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Lexus GS350 suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lexus GS350

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2018 Lexus GS350’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 GS350’s shocks and struts 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 indicators of worn Lexus GS350 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2018 Lexus GS350’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2018 GS350 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lexus's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Lexus GS350 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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.
  • When does Lexus GS350 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 GS350’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lexus service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
