Not sure when or if your Chrysler Cirrus’s steering and suspension systems need service?

When To Get 1996 Chrysler Cirrus Suspension Service

When you first bought your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your Cirrus jolts, pulls 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 1996 Chrysler Cirrus in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system 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, wheel bearings, and power steering components. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Cirrus 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.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Chrysler Cirrus

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1996 Chrysler Cirrus suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the 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 Cirrus’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Chrysler Cirrus shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Cirrus’s 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.

1996 Cirrus Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Chrysler's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Chrysler Cirrus? 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 Chrysler intended.
  • Does my Chrysler Cirrus power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Cirrus is low on power steering fluid, we’ll top it off per Chrysler's guidelines to help your suspension perform smoothly.
