1997 Lexus LX450 Maintenance Schedule

When does Lexus recommend steering and suspension service for 1997 Lexus LX450s?

Does Your 1997 Lexus LX450 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 1997 Lexus LX450, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your LX450 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 1997 Lexus LX450, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your LX450 suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If parts of your Lexus LX450 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Lexus LX450

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1997 Lexus LX450 suspension system. 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 limit vibration and keep your Lexus up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your LX450’s shocks and struts 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 indicators of worn Lexus LX450 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1997 Lexus LX450 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1997 LX450 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my LX450'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 LX450 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. 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 does Lexus LX450 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll follow Lexus service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
