Is It Time For 2001 Lexus LS430 Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2001 Lexus LS430, 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 LS430 bounces, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2001 Lexus LS430, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your LS430 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lexus LS430 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 LS430 Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2001 Lexus LS430’s suspension. 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 pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your LS430’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth can all point to issues with your Lexus LS430 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2001 Lexus LS430 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride. Schedule an appointment for steering and suspension services at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 LS430 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 help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Lexus LS430 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. 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 connect with the road how Lexus intended.
  • When does Lexus LS430 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 LS430’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll follow Lexus service specifications when topping it off to help ensure proper suspension operation.
