When To Get 2004 Lexus GX470 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2004 Lexus GX470, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your GX470 bounces, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Lexus GX470 in for steering and suspension services. 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’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Lexus GX470’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Lexus GX470 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2004 Lexus GX470’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2004 Lexus GX470’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Lexus GX470 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your GX470’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 GX470 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 let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lexus GX470 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 right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Lexus GX470 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your GX470’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
