When should you have your 1996 Lexus LS400 suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 1996 Lexus LS400 Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1996 Lexus LS400, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your LS400 feels bouncy, 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 1996 Lexus LS400 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, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, 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 LS400 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 LS400 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Lexus LS400’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 getting your 1996 Lexus LS400’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Lexus LS400 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Lexus LS400 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1996 LS400 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LS400's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Lexus LS400 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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.
  • When does Lexus LS400 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 LS400 is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Lexus's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
