Is It Time For 1994 Geo Prizm Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1994 Geo Prizm, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Prizm feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1994 Geo Prizm in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

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, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Prizm suspension system needs repair, 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 Prizm 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.

Geo Prizm Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1994 Geo Prizm’s suspension. 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 components work together to limit vibration and keep your Geo up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Prizm’s shocks and struts since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Geo Prizm shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1994 Geo Prizm suspension shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

1994 Prizm Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Geo's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, 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 Geo Prizm? 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 your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Geo Prizm power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Prizm is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Geo's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
  • Why is my Geo Prizm bouncing excessively? If it feels like you’re on a trampoline every time your Prizm goes over a bump or dip, you may have a problem with your struts or shocks. Faulty shocks and struts can’t properly absorb road bumps, leading to a bouncy ride.
  • Why does my Prizm's nose dive down when I hit the brakes? As you brake, the forward momentum of your Prizm combined with its weight sends a ton of force to its front end. A damaged or worn suspension system can cause the front end to compress and dip even further.
  • How do I know if I have worn Geo Prizm shocks? Worn Prizm shock absorbers can't effectively absorb road impacts. Your Prizm might feel like it's swaying or rolling when making a turn. You may also feel like your Prizm shakes or rocks harder than normal when you go over a minor bump.
