Suspension Service & Repair for 1996 Hyundai Elantra

1996 Hyundai Elantra Maintenance and Service Schedule

Not sure when or if your Hyundai Elantra’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 1996 Hyundai Elantra Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1996 Hyundai Elantra, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Elantra feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1996 Hyundai Elantra in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis parts, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your Elantra suspension system needs repair, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Hyundai Elantra’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, 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 Hyundai Elantra

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1996 Hyundai Elantra’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Shocks keep the car from bouncing too much and struts support the structure of the suspension. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Elantra’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Hyundai Elantra shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1996 Hyundai Elantra suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

Questions About 1996 Hyundai Elantra Steering & Suspension

  • Does tire pressure and tread depth impact my Hyundai's suspension? Maintaining your tires can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Hyundai Elantra? 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 Hyundai intended.
  • When does Hyundai Elantra 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 power steering fluid needs to be filled, we’ll top it off per Hyundai's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
