When To Get 2009 Lexus GX470 Suspension Service

When you first drove your 2009 Lexus GX470, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. 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 2009 Lexus GX470 in for suspension and steering service. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your GX470 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your GX470 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Lexus GX470 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2009 Lexus GX470’s suspension. 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 limit vibration and keep your Lexus up off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 2009 Lexus GX470’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Lexus GX470 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2009 Lexus GX470 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician.

Questions About 2009 Lexus GX470 Steering & Suspension

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my GX470's steering and suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new 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? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 GX470 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 GX470’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
