When To Get 2008 Lexus GX470 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 2008 Lexus GX470, 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 GX470 bounces, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 2008 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 will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lexus GX470 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.

Lexus GX470 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2008 Lexus GX470’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Lexus up off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2008 Lexus GX470 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Lexus GX470 shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2008 Lexus GX470’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

Questions About 2008 Lexus GX470 Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lexus's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lexus GX470? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how 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 follow Lexus service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
