2011 Lexus GS460 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2011 Lexus GS460 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Does Your 2011 Lexus GS460 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2011 Lexus GS460, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your GS460 bounces, 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 2011 Lexus GS460 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your GS460 suspension system needs repair, 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 GS460 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 GS460 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2011 Lexus GS460’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. 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 2011 Lexus GS460 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Lexus GS460 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2011 Lexus GS460’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2011 GS460 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GS460's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lexus GS460? Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. 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 GS460 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GS460 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Lexus's guidelines to help ensure proper suspension operation.
