Does Your 2007 Lexus GX470 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2007 Lexus GX470, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your GX470 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2007 Lexus GX470 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

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, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Lexus GX470’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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lexus GX470

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2007 Lexus GX470’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2007 Lexus GX470 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Lexus GX470 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2007 Lexus GX470’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.

2007 GX470 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GX470'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 faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lexus GX470? 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 come into contact with the road in the way Lexus intended.
  • When should I have my Lexus GX470 power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your GX470’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Lexus's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
