Is It Time For 2010 Lexus RX450h Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2010 Lexus RX450h, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your RX450h feels bouncy, leans 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 2010 Lexus RX450h, 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, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your RX450h suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If parts of your Lexus RX450h 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 RX450h Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 2010 Lexus RX450h suspension system. 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 RX450h’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 RX450h shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2010 Lexus RX450h suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2010 RX450h Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Lexus's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Lexus RX450h? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. 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 should I have my Lexus RX450h power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Lexus's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
