1996 Lexus LX450 Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Lexus LX450’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1996 Lexus LX450 Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 1996 Lexus LX450, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your LX450 bounces, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1996 Lexus LX450, bring it in for suspension and steering service. 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, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis components, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, 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 your LX450 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 LX450 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Lexus LX450’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 1996 Lexus LX450 shock and strut replacement since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Lexus LX450 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your LX450’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.

1996 LX450 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • 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.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Lexus LX450? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Lexus intended.
  • Does my Lexus LX450 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your LX450’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
