2000 Lexus RX300 Maintenance Schedule

When does Lexus recommend steering and suspension service for 2000 Lexus RX300s?

Does Your 2000 Lexus RX300 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 2000 Lexus RX300, 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 RX300 jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2000 Lexus RX300 in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

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, shock dampeners, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem 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 your RX300 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Lexus RX300 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2000 Lexus RX300’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. 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. But there's no set schedule for 2000 Lexus RX300 shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Lexus RX300 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your RX300’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2000 RX300 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Lexus's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 RX300 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. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Lexus intended.
  • When does Lexus RX300 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your RX300’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Lexus's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
