When you first bought your 1997 Geo Tracker, 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 Tracker jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of problems is a good time to bring your 1997 Geo Tracker in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.
We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, axle bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Tracker suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Geo Tracker’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.
Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1997 Geo Tracker’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 1997 Geo Tracker shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Geo Tracker shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 1997 Geo Tracker’s 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.
